When Life Hands You a Lemon...

...have a watermelon margarita.

For the second week in a row, I didn't get back to New York as scheduled. I'm still in Chicago, and my return flight is scheduled for 2:00. I was #42 on the standby list last night and the American Airlines customer service rep let me know they were getting ready to put cots out at the airport. I graciously accepted her offer of a hotel voucher that would pay half the cost of a room and spent the night at a Holiday Inn. There is a nice restaurant here and I treated myself to a watermelon margarita, which took the edge off any travel difficulties. 

BlogHer13 was great and I'm eager to hear where next year's conference will be. It's either East or West Coast. For economy I hope we're in the east and for fun, I hope it's west, though if it is, I'm thinking of taking the train.

Off to the airport. My luggage was supposed to travel east on an earlier plane and I'm looking forward to our reunion. 

Hugs to all!

Your airport delays sound frazzling, and that is good the BlogHer conference was worthwhile.

Dear me! How wonderful it was to be able to stay in a hotel overnight! I hope you will have happy landings in New York!

I guess the train sounds like a better deal after all you have gone through in the past few weeks traveling. I am so glad you enjoyed your trip. Blessings!

Oh my, I think I'd be taking the next trip on a train too. Hope you are safely home soon. It's going to look mighty good to you!

Oh no....if I would have known you were delayed you could have stayed with me...!! Hope you are safely home by now, it is 5:18 PM CST so hopefully you are sitting in your home with comfy shoes on.
