learning lessons

this past few days, i've learned quite a lot about myself:  i am not a positive thinker.  i like being in control/ i hate it when things are out of my control.

it's all across the news that volcanic ash has completely shut down europe for the past few days.  yeah.  sounds terrible.  i don't think people really understand how terrible the situation is unless they live through it.  i'm living through it.  i was supposed to arrive in DC yesterday.  that plan was shot down  when volcanic ash prevented any flights from getting into london.  so we rescheduled.  i was supposed to leave tomorrow morning, but the wind continues to blow ash over europe, so that plan fell through.  so, we rescheduled.  now, i fly out weds- fingers crossed.

i was supposed to spend this week with my sisters in DC.  now, i won't get there until weds and i will have to fly out to utah on friday.  that gives me a lovely two days to spend with my sister.  TWO instead of SEVEN.  see why i'm frustrated?

Oh dear, I'm sorry. That's SO lousy. I remember trying get get back to school in Switzerland when BA went on strike. We'd driven four hours to the airport only to be turned away. There were hoards of people fighting to get on other airlines, everyone was angry and/or crying. We had to turn around and drive four hours home and then do it all over again the next week. Airport trouble is the absolute worst. I hope you've made it to DC by now? Fingers crossed. xoxo katie
