good news & bad news

the good news:
I only have 36 hours of travel this week unlike most weeks
the bad news:
my flight was already delayed when I got to the airport yesterday
the good news:
They said it would only be delayed one hour
the bad news:
multiply that by 4 and that will tell you the actual delay
the good news:
we boarded the plane and thought we'd be to D.C. by dinnertime
the bads news:
we sat on the tarmac on the plane for an additional two hours
the good news:
they gave us beverages while we were waiting
the bad news:
they didn't have any alcohol on board
the good news:
we were finally cleared to take off!
the bad news:
our normally one hour 'wheels up to wheels down' was double because of the number of airplanes in the air

Yeah.... that was my day yesterday. Luckily I have awesome co-workers and they had mexican waiting at the front desk for me when I got to the hotel. Kind of makes it all worth while when you like the people you work with.
Here's to smoother skies tonight! Enjoy your Wednesday!
