I'm back...FINALLY!!!

Post by Sheila on Fri Jan 14, 2011 10:36 pm

So....did ya miss me??

I know some of you have been following my trials and tribulations on FB. For those who don't know, I went to Las Vegas 9 days ago to have a 4 days girls weekend with my sisters for my oldest sister's birthday.

Then, the snow and ice arrived in Atlanta, and the birthday sister got home to Jacksonville. FL while my other sister and I were stranded for 5 days!!

Limped into town late this afternoon, literally. My sister twisted her ankle really bad last night and we needed to get her a wheel chair at the airport. And I have a nasty dose of bronchitis.

BUT, I'm home, in my own bed, with kitties and my laptop.....

9 days in Las Vegas is 5 too many. It's just expensive, and just "too much". This little weekend turned into the weekend from you know where, and I'm afraid recovery will be longer than I hoped.

Glad you are finally home! Sorry the snow and ice made a fun weekend into a long drawn out trip. But, the big question, did you win enough playing black jack for your iPad?

I won about 1/2 an iPad! But with the long drawn out stay, we had to pay for extra hotel, food, etc....so that's mostly gone now. IF we left when Monday...or even Tuesday, I was golden for about 1/2 the purchase. Then I would have figured something out for the other half.

Now....back at square 1.

Let me just say, I have been stranded before. Mine was for 3 extra days in Venice right before Christmas. As much as one should be excited about extra vacation, it is not so.

Sorry you got stranded. Sorry you got so sick.

for being home!

Ahhhhh....woke in my own bed, with kitties attached to me on one extremity or the other. Things are now approaching normal...some Mucinex DM, Dayquil and giant cup of coffee made like I like it should help get me past the "stranded" memories!!

And now I can access you all, and FB, and have all my "things" at my fingertips. So good to be home!!

We've had plenty of travel nightmares, but none as bad as that. So glad you've made it home safe and sound. Please rest and get healthy!

Oh yeah...we wheelchaired it through 3 airports....so she really was in pain. She's in a boot up to her knee for 4 weeks, with a cane. Another 1/8", she would have been in a cast and a wheelchair, so she's thankful for small mercies at the moment.

Next time my oldest sister says...hey....I have a great idea how to spend a birthday, we're hanging up on her!
