Stuck in San Antonio

and paying $.25 per minute for internet! Yikes!

Shuttle was 10 minutes late getting me to the airport and I missed my flight. Couldn't get on the next two standby flights, so am now waiting for my last chance at 7:35pm to catch a flight to Dallas, so I can try to catch a flight to Seattle.

But wait! I hear you say... You live in Vancouver! That's, like, a different country or something!

You are right.

American can only get me as far as Seattle on the "credit" of my missed ticket. So I will have to rent a car in Seattle and drive to Vancouver. Since I'm not schedule to arrive in Seattle until Midnight, I'm first driving to the Garcia's who are going to let me crash, and then drive home tomorrow. I'll miss a day of work, but I'll save $500. Yes, that's the amount it would cost me to fly all the way to Vancouver.

I'm not a happy camper, but at least I see a tenuous path home. It's amazing how fragile and small one feels when travel plans go to hell in a handbasket.

Hopefully, I'll have better news to report tomorrow.

And to add insult to injury, the pilot light on our furnace has gone out again and I can't figure out how to re-light it. Of course our landlord is not home so I have to wait until tomorrow for heat upstairs.

Yay.

Heat!
I got the furnace lit. I made sure it was working properly and that the fan kicked on.

Whoo hoo!

Re: Heat!
Hooray! Heat is good.

I'm now in Dallas, waiting for my flight at 9:45. At least I'm not flying standby, and have a seat on this one.

I made a reservation for a one way rental from Hertz - so I'm good to go.About $129 US.

See you tomorrow!

I love you honey, I'm so sorry this got all fucked up. You want anything in particular for dinner tomorrow? Because, as you know, how can I tell you I love you if I can't feed you?

*hug* Hopefully you've gotten home safely by now - I hate airlines.

I did make it home, although exhausted and cranky. I'm at work now, so I'm less exhausted, but still cranky. :)

Actually - the airline was great. It's the shuttle service that I hate. :)
