Leaving on a jet plane?




Got up at 5:30am. Took care of my cats & dogs. Left driveway at 8:30am. Got gas, drove an hour to Houston Hobby Airport. Got processed through. Got to my gate & wait.....wait....wait....

I'm in stand by on my flight. Two flights going to Dallas. I'm the latter one. We wait....wait....wait....both planes are still in Dallas when they are supposed to be in Houston! We wait....wait...wait....supposed to board at 11:35am. That gets changed to 1:55pm. We wait....wait...wait....

Planes are still in Dallas...

Finally, some news! Not good news though. First plane canceled. That means people are going to board the plane I'm supposed to be on :-(  but I wait it out...& out...& out....

7 people in stand by. Not good. Only 1 gets on because a  crew member didn't show up! Damn.

So I drive another hour to Houston Intercontinental because all Dallas/Ft Worth flights from Hobby are full.

It's now 3:55. My flight doesn't board till 7:30...so I wait...I wait...I wait. 12 people on stand by so far, but they use bigger planes. Wish me luck!

I'm trying to avoid driving because of the surgery & driving the Ford hurts my foot. So I wait....I wait...I wait...

If I don't get on, after I go insane, I might have to drive to Dallas anyhow :-(  it's a 300 mile drive, not including taking the old van back home & grabbing the  motorhome instead!!

Sooooo, I wait...I wait...I wait...

And I forgot to grab my aircard for the little computer. No wifi here. Drats!

    1. Ugh, it is! I'd rather have driven there if I could have.

  3. I hope to never get on another plane as long as I live. But I'm glad you got your seat and you can finally get on your way.

  4. I will never fly again. I hated when I did it before. But for you to be driving is not really good at all. Good luck.

  5. I agree with the others, I haven't been on a plane since before 9/11 - and I don't plan to, either. No way am I having a stranger x-ray me or pat me down. That's just awful. But I AM glad you got on a flight, since that's what you had to do. :)

  7. Hi Cyn, just read the last month of your posts. Glad the surgery is behind you, and hope you mend quickly.... without complications this time :-) Be good to yourself, you deserve it after all you have been through!
