The snow that pretty much brought air traffic to a complete stop ended up being about 5 inches. This really isn’t much for us, but for whatever reason it caused major delays. My 1:45 plane took off at 3:45, and then when we got to Chicago at 4:15 we ended up sitting on the plane for two hours before we even got to go to a gate. We missed our connecting flight from Chicago to Florida, but fortunately there was a later flight. This one was supposed to leave at 7:55 but it was delayed until 8:13. We pretty much boarded on time, but I don’t think we took off until about 8:45. We landed in Florida a little after midnight, took a train to the main terminal and then had to wait for our luggage. Once we got that we were waiting for a shuttle but we ended up being in the wrong spot and had to figure out where we were supposed to be waiting. Once we found the shuttle and got on, it seemed like everyone else in the air port also wanted that same shuttle. It was going to stop at tons of different hotels, and we really didn’t want to be up any longer than we had to be so we got a cab and that got us to the hotel at about 1:45, shortly before my 2:00 post.
I took one look at the bed I was supposed to sleep in and pretty much decided that it was terrible. It was really hard, and I like and need something more on the soft side. I was about to lie down though when I discovered the coolest thing. Apparently, all the beds in this hotel are Select Comfort Sleep Number beds. I was extremely happy about this little fact, set my bed to something very soft and fell asleep quite quickly and easily.
After 4 and a half hours of sleep I got up to start my day again. The pillows here are feather, and I’m allergic to them. I’ve all ready called the desk twice to ask them for different pillows and they keep telling me that they’ll bring some up but I still don’t have new pillows. Oh well, if they can’t give me pillows I can use I’m going to use their decorative pillows since they’re normal. Normally I bring my own so that there’s no problem, but I brought a small suitcase and there was no room for the pillow. I was in meetings from 8:30 until 6:00, and then we had a banquet at 7:00. I’ve been here ever since trying to catch up on my Friends page and things. Things are just moving so slow though. Oh well, I guess that’s what you get with free wireless. SMILE!
I felt really good this morning despite the lack of sleep, but I started getting really tired later in the day and I’m still not feeling the greatest anyway. I’m taking meds, but the only ones that seem to be doing anything for me are the nighttime ones, and I obviously wasn’t going to take those during the day. As the day went on I started feeling pretty crappy again, so I’m looking forward to taking my dose tonight and getting another good night’s sleep.
It’s really humid here but I went outside a couple of times today just to enjoy the warmth. Tomorrow we’ll be changing hotels in the evening since the meetings are done and we need to get closer to the air port, so this may very well be my last entry until I get back home unless they have free Internet in the new hotel. I don’t have any special plans for tomorrow night though, so who knows.
I had planned to watch my Harry Potter movie tonight, but unfortunately things just aren’t going well in that department. For some reason, DVDs on this laptop sound absolutely terrible. They sound really jumpy and strange. I decreased my audio acceleration rate, but who knows, maybe I need to drop it even more. So, I guess I have to wait until I get back home to watch that. I’ve all ready been told that when we get home Wednesday morning I don’t have to work the rest of the day so I’m definitely going to take advantage of that one. SMILE!
Anyway, I think that’s about it for now. I want to take those meds and crawl into bed. My right leg is really stiff for some reason, almost as if I pulled a muscle, and my ribs hurt really bad from coughing, so I just want to crawl into my little hole and sleep. Hopefully I’ll be able to write more tomorrow. Later.
