De News: Nurse Karen
Yes, that's a long way. However, flights originating in Toronto were selling for $300 more than I paid...and hey, have car, will drive. Let's be economical about this. Do you like lists?
Things that went right Things that went wrong
I got all my things packed I finished packing 6 hours later than I planned
I dressed for the weather It was raining
I checked in online My printer ran out of ink
My car is running well I ran out of gas
There are gas stations en route They were closed
The Hamilton Escarpment is pretty WTF was I doing there?
Police lady directed me to a station It was in the wrong direction
I had no problems crossing the border I have probs following directions
I got to the airport early It was the wrong airport
The doors were open No one was there
411 patched me to the airport police Yup, wrong airport
Police directed me to the rt 1 It was 40 mins away
Still had 1:30 till the flight I got off at the wrong exit
The parking shuttle dude pulled I guess helping with my bags would
right up to my car be too much
Baggage drop is 45 mins b4 flight I arrive 44 mins before the flight
The airline lady put me on the next flight Well....Charlotte is nice!
I've got about 45 minutes until I actually get on a plane to Miami. I think I'm doing pretty well. It's not even 11 am, and I've already met four amazing strangers that really treated me far better than they had to. I am grateful. I also ran into the lady love of one of my best guy friends from childhood. She was on the Charlotte flight too. I had an awesome seat, with tons of leg room and I slept like a baby for the 90 minute flight. All in all, I feel blessed. Shouldn't everyday begin with reasons to be thankful. I think so.
Love and Adventure,
Nurse Karen <--- follow me, it's gonna get better!
