Leavin’ on a jet plane…..don’t know when I’ll get back again….no but seriously!

Standard

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.  🙂

Yes this is a real thing for most Americans right now....making it very hard to get home....

 

 

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.

 

I can ALWAYS make friends! 🙂

 

 

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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!
