Yes, I am still in South Carolina. You probably think I am sad because I am not in New York. Well, I believe that everything happens for a reason. I arrived at the airport about 2 1/2 hours early. I guess I was over excited. Here is not like JFK or LGA where there is a lot of traffic at the airports. Things here go very smoothly and quickly! Since I was so early, I decided to grab something to eat. It wasn't a variety of choices, so I had a burger and fries, which cost me $8.00. I know, why didn't I eat or pack something before I left. But anyway, the burger was OK, I've had better!. So I am thinking that I have about a little over an hour before I am ready to board, but there was an announcement saying that my flight was delayed. Oh Noooo... but I remained calm. All I kept thinking about was the last time I tried to fly and I had all those issues with flights being delayed, Not again!
I did my reservation through orbitz (us airways) and I had them give me an update through contact me on my cell phone. So of course they kept calling notifying me of the delays. Now I am getting nervous because my parents have left to go back home which is over an HOUR DRIVE. My best friend told me that it was raining but she didn't tell me it was a storm. She seemed to be in a bad mood, so I didn't want to bother her with checking flight information for me. It feels like this move has distanced our friendship. I hope its me being over paranoid.
My cousin from upstate was texting me letting me know how horrible the weather was in New York for the last couple of days. As I was texting her I received another alert from orbitz telling me that there was another delay. Now the plane wasn't leaving until 7pm. My cousin said, "maybe you should see a ticket agent to find out what is going on." I think I was more nervous because it's such a distance for my parents to turn around and come back and get me. Now my head is going about a mile a minute trying to decide on what to do.
I tried calling Dr.S secretary and explain my situation since I was scheduled for my cat scan friday afternoon. Of course, she was gone for the day. I didn't want to call my bff back so I just texted once and said flight was delayed. I knew I had to make a decision and quickly. What to do?
I went to the ticket agent and asked about my flight. I wasn't the only one concerned either. There were other people concerned as well even a soldier going home for 2 weeks. Now they have pushed the time til 8pm. Now I am really worried because I knew it will begin to get dark soon and I didn't want my parents driving in the dark. So my flight ended up being cancelled.
I wasn't upset because I rather be safe then sorry. I changed my flight to leave on Monday. Even though I am missing some days in NY, its not too bad of a weekend. My parents went to a family reunion so I am here alone, well me and the dog, molly. So I am still smiling!
Have a GREAT weekend! I will be enjoying some peace and quiet. Ahhhhh.......
