Bad Dream????






On Valentines Day Andy informed me that he had purchased tickets for Ohio! What a pleasant suprise! He had been planning this trip for quite some time.

We were scheduled to fly out of Orlando on Friday night and arrive in Dayton two hours later. When we tried to check in we discovered our flight had been canceled due to no flight crew! (kind of a nessecity)!! They put us on another flight with a connection in Atlanta putting us two hours behind our original scheduled arrival. We made it to Atlanta; scheduled to leave at 11:57pm. Finally on our way to Dayton! We were about half way there when pilot comes on and tells us an indicator light has come on and maintance wants us to come back to Atlanta! Not exactly what we were wanting to hear at 12:30pm. We headed back and were approaching the runway when pilot informed us that due to heavy fog; visibilty was nothing and the auto-pilot wasn't working therefore, we would have to land in Burmingham, AL! Of course, by the time we get there that airport is closed so that means we all had to sit in the plane on the runway and wait for two buses to come pick everyone up. Buses finally arrived after an hour and we made the 2 1/2 hr trip back to Atlanta to catch another plane to Dayton. We eventually made it to Dayton at 9:30am. What was supposed to take two hours turned into 15!! We are to be getting a letter in mail informing us of our compensation. It better be good! Needless to say, sitting for 15 hours straight was no fun for this pregnant lady. My back still aches!

Anyways, it was still good to be home and to see everyone again. Looking forward to June!

Wow, I'm sorry you had such a rough trip, but glad you got to see your family. I wish I had known you were coming and I would have had all this computer stuff from Nate to you. Oh well, I'll get it mailed out soon.

You're looking good! Hope that baby is behaving for you. I can't wait to (maybe?) see all three of you at the wedding.
