On our way to the NY Gift Show.
First thing this morning (6:30am) my friend Jenni and I were standing in line at the airport and she asks me what's in the box I had with me. I looked at the box and suddenly realized that I had forgotten to send the other 3 boxes of samples to NY earlier in the week. Oooooops! I frantically figure out how to still get them there in time and SEVERAL $$'s later.
Finally, back to peace of mind, I go off to purchase my travel periodicals. The lady asks me for my ID, I begin digging... and digging and digging. I had just used it to make my way through our high security checkpoints! My friend Jenni and I back track to where we had been sitting and find it slyly tucked in the side of the chair just where I had cleverly dropped it! Now I realize why those people check your ID for $9 on a credit card with your signature on it, they are just helping you keep track of yourself! All this time I thought it was just to annoy you!
We make it to Chicago, the flight to NY is cancelled. We get on one an hour later, not bad. An hour later turns into 2 and now 3 and counting. I'm beginning to think that the overnight samples may be making it to our hotel before we do.
What I'm thankful to God for today is:
-my friend Jenni traveling with me
-samples on the way and that I remembered in time
-the lady that asked for my id! and finding it
-internet in the Chicago Airport is only $6.95 for the day
-blueberry frap from Starbucks (and the strechy pants I'm wearing!)
-my family and of course YOU!
