Let this be a lesson to you...

Next time you go on a trip, REMEMBER to read over your itinerary carefully ahead of time. Don't just check the time of your flight. Check the date. Make sure that, if you THINK you're booked on a flight on Monday morning, you don't show up at the airport early only to be told you're REALLY booked on a flight for Sunday, the day before. 'Cause if this happens to you, you'll be really, really bummed. Especially if it's 7:30 in the morning, you can't reach anyone in your office or the travel agency, or the people who are supposed to pick you up in a few hours.

And if it happens to you, don't say I didn't warn you.

And that's all I'll say for now. I ended up in Alberta, all-be-it at a different city than I'd planned, but I'm here, some appointments could be arranged (yes, I made it onto the evening news in Red Deer), and now all I can do about it is laugh.

Tomorrow I fly to Abbotsford. Yes, I checked the date. I am DEFINITELY booked on a flight to Abbotsford tomorrow.

Sweet dreams.

Oh goodness (she said while trying to stifle a laugh) I know I really shouldn't laugh, but can't help it. It is funny NOW - right?

I went to a work conference a day early once and wandered around the hotel the next morning looking for the breakfast meeting. When I went to inquire about which room I was to go to I felt rather foolish when the desk clerk told me the conference didn't start until the next day!!! I must admit that I did have a fun day shopping though.

Isn't life a blast? Keep smiling.

Oh, that must have been frustrating! But I have to agree with Cuppa this it is kinda funny!

Hope you are having a good time. A good time for a business trip, anyway.

Those Albertans must be desperate for news. "Winnipeg Woman Misses Plane." What was the interview like? Did they ask you why you missed it? (hee hee)
