We were stranded and couldn't get home. That fire in Chicago put everyone off the planes and it was a mess. We had to scramble to get a hotel for the night, I didn't have my meds with me, thinking we would be home early Friday. After six and a half hours in line, I realized it was going to be a nightmare weekend. *sigh* My brother got the ticket to Albuquerque changed. So, now I have a few days before I have to leave. Thankfully, so. I'm exhausted and don't feel that great. Vacation was good if you like muggy and rain. (I don't like either.) It rained every single day we were there. Very little sun and tons and tons of humidity. That will be our last trip to Florida. My asthma just can't take it any more. I can barely breathe. Rod totally agrees with me about the mugginess and rain.

Shannon (our oldest) cleaned the house really nicely and had a nice dinner prepared for when we finally got home Saturday night. Everything went smoothly, she said. Thank goodness for that. I've missed everyone this week. Especially hanging out with Morgan and doing Big Bang stuff. So glad to be home, even if it isn't for very long.

I hope you all are well.

Hugs, Patt

Please ignore this rant. I was so tired and exhausted from the trip that I took it out on all of you. Sorry, everyone. I'm one of those people that need naps. LOL Now that I've napped and am home safe and sound, I'm better. I just need to get ready for the next trip. I'm determined to make this a good trip. My momm deserves something happy and me smiling a lot. Be well, all of you.

Well, in their defense, it wasn't their fault that there was a fire in Chicago control center. LOL I was just whiney last night. Man, was I beat. Glad to be home. Wish it was for a little longer.

Yeah, this has been a rainy September. I'm sorry you didn't have the best vacation. And then to have that fire disrupt everything... Didn't the airline at least try to find you a place to stay?

At least you're home safe. Take care of yourself and recoup before you have to leave again. *hugs*

No, they left it up to us, but there were thousands of people stranded, so that's why we stayed at the hotel inside the airport. Close and easy. Vacation was pretty nice. I was just whiney last night. But we could have lived without Friday and Saturday. LOL

I'm so sorry you had such a nightmare trip home. It sounds incredibly tiring. I hope you get over it quickly, and feel perky again in no time. *hugs*

Already starting to perc up. Hubster said this morning, "Wow, you look a lot better after a night of sleep in our own bed." LOL Nothing beats being back home, does it? Thanks for the hugs. :)

I will never go without three days extra again. I learned a great deal from this trip. Things happen and you have to be prepared for them. LOL Thanks for the hugs. :)

Oh, dear - and here I was thinking how much you'd be enjoying your time in Florida!

I always take one day's extra stuff with me when I go anywhere... but distances here aren't as great as in America.

Didn't know about the fire... but the news here is always abbreviated and at odd times at the weekends, and I missed all but the Scottish news (all five minutes of it) yesterday.

So take a few deep breaths, relax, and recharge your batteries before heading off again.

I'm much better today, Sheila. I needed to sleep in our own bed. I feel great today and much, much better than before. :) I will never again go without extras, that's for sure. :) I'm breathing deep and relaxing today.

Sometimes life is like that. I need to settle down and take it as it comes. I'm a bit of a whiner. LOL LMBO

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better now. I'm sorry you had the hassle though, you could have done without that.
