I have arrived in Albuquerque for my final vacation of 2009… and first vacation of 2010!! I’m out here visiting some friends (and happen to be using their work computers right now to write this lovely post!)
It was quite the travel day… Grand Rapids to Chicago was ok, but then Chicago happened. We boarded our flight (all fine and good) and then about 1/2 way to the runway the pilot (or first officer… I wasn’t paying attention too well) came across and said that we were being sent to the “penalty box”. Yes, the plane told him that late that something was wrong and had to be replace. Goodie.
So we make our way back to the gate we had just left and sit there for about 15 minutes before they tell us that we have to de-plane so they can fix the issue. But don’t fear… another plane would be on it’s way. About 30-45 minutes later, we were still waiting and then learned that the 2nd plane had maintenance issues too. Yowsers!
Ultimately, 2 hours later, we re-boarded our initial plan (after being told that it was fixed 100%!) and got on our way to Alburquerque! Only 2 hours later.. we had finally arrived! I’m so excited to be able to spend time with my friends here (and maybe even meet new friends too!)
Anyway… wanted to wish you all a happy new year.
May it be a blessed and prosperous year!
