A tad bit of irony this time with my Book of Face status. We all remember the song by John Denver “Leavin’ on Jet Plane”….WELL (as Jack Benny would say…) I placed this status up: “I’m leaving on a jet plane…don’t know when I’ll be back again…” as I was heading out to Aspen…and now I am stranded IN Aspen! (Get it? In COLORADO…John DENVER! STRANDED) OH no?!?! NEWS FLASH! Justin Bieber’s voice is changing! Dang puberty! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kffacxfA7G4. YES, I got BIEBER FEVER! WHOOO!
Today we decided to get some late dinner. We are waiting on pizza now. At happy hour this evening we overheard a story as told by our table neighbors. You see coming back from where our campus is set up going into town is a round-a-bout. They were talking about these kids who were chanting “round-a-bout…whhhaaaaaattt!” Long story short…they went around the round-a-bout like 5 times chanting and screaming! Amazing…simply amazing.
Day one stranded in Aspen. Success. 🙂
NOW I was able to get out of Aspen that next morning. HOWEVER, not home quite yet. I am currently Day 2 stranded in Denver. When I arrived in Denver I got an email alert saying my itinerary had changed. This usually means a cancellation. And that assumption was correct. I got a hotel, wandered aimlessly around the airport to get my stuff situated. I ran into a customer of ours (mind you in DENVER and she lives 4 hours away and in the same state that I reside in and I never see her!), got to play with a little tike, talk to a woman about rest and relaxation therapy, and finally got to my hotel.
At the hotel, I got everything set up and went down to eat. It was pretty funny. I met a gentleman who was originally from Michigan. It was a great lunch. There are other like-minded people out there and its refreshing when you find them. I also met a gentleman named Eddy Money, a group of people from a company that uses a lot of labels, and a guy from my hometown! It was an awesome time. So this morning I moved into a different room and I am trying to get my flight stuff addressed.
Out of anyone to be traveling alone, I think I may be the best at it. I make friends everywhere. Not a problem. I actually had fun talking to people. It makes the world so much smaller. I can’t be upset at anyone because we cannot control the weather. I am not going to get irritated with anyone and I am just going to figure it out. You also figure out a lot about yourself when you are forced to explore. Life is good.
So here I sit telling you about my mini vacation. It has been refreshingly wonderful. I love it. I have been so blessed. I must tell you that I am ready to be home. God apparently needed me here though. So for now, I sign off and continue this adventure!
Happy Snow Day!

Hey, snowed in! Sounds fun. I wouldn’t mind being in your shoes. I like an excuse to get off the merry-go-round. Enjoy and get home safe.
Officially home! Thanks 🙂 It was quite nice and enjoyable being forced to relax a few days… 😉
I’m jealous. My kind of adventure and I LOVE time alone to explore when you aren’t committed to be anywhere / do anything. And heck, bad weather is a great excuse for getting that time. No one can judge that!
I think out of anyone in my family, I enjoy traveling the most! I am so blessed to be able to do it! You totally could have come with me though. It would have been nice to have a partner in crime! 🙂
Oh…and I think I’ve sung that song over 1,000 times in my life (usually to myself, but not always). I love it and think of it when I am flying anywhere. I’m singing it now for you!
🙂 I could hear you! You have an amazing voice Techy!
