OK, so I hate to be that girl that puts someone or something “on blast,” but American Airlines — not only was Monday’s post about our hellish escapade to get here thanks to them….(a 6 hour delay, 2 missed connections, terrible customer service (except for Todd!), and overall just a negative experience.) BUT, then YESTERDAY for our flight home…THE SAME THING HAPPENED!!!
Thankfully, we hadn’t left for the airport yet, but we got a notification that our return flight was AGAIN, delayed for two hours, causing us to AGAIN miss our connection and AGAIN have to rebook our flight. Only this time, it was the last flight out, and the only available flights were the next day. (aka this afternoon.)
SOOOO, we’re still in Wisconsin, on borrowed time, until we fly out this afternoon.
But I’ll tell you what, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my short years around the sun, it’s not to sweat the small stuff. Sure, it’s inconvenient, but in the grand scheme of things, we’re getting an extra half-day of vacation, we’re safe, we’re blessed to have the ability to work from up here, and at the end of the day, it must have been part of God’s plan.
However…just because I’m “rolling with it” doesn’t mean I can’t learn something from it….which is a) never to book the last flight out again, and b) never fly American Airlines again.
But anywho – we’ve had an absolutely incredible time up here…no surprise!
We’ve had some absolutely glorious days on the water,
we went tubing and had a bit of a wild and bouncy ride!
Steven and I did a lot of exploring on our bikes – We stumbled upon the local watering hole and had an afternoon cocktail.
And we even found ourselves at an archery range, and shot archery! (My fingers are still numb!)
We went out for some delicious dinners.
Made a roaring bonfire.
Had a cornhole tournament!
Binge watched “Yellowstone” as an entire family (after the kids were in bed) — and wow what a gripping show.
But the best part was just being all together.
That’s what vacation is all about. And that’s what I’m so grateful for, and grateful that Steven was here to be a part of it.
I am getting on the airplane tonight (hopefully, God willing!!) feeling incredibly loved, blessed and overflowing with joy.
God is good.
I hope your holiday weekend was just as wonderful!
See ya back in NYC! It’s time for wheels up!
