Friday the Thirteenth


I was not a happy camper when I found out on the morning news that a small plane going from Newark to Buffalo had made a fiery crash to the ground Thursday night. Not a good feeling in the pit of my stomach, knowing that I would be boarding a plane the exact same size, different airline, at 4pm. It was a very long morning. I wandered around, trying to keep my mind off of it. Walked to Barnes and Noble, had a scone and some coffee. Searched the shelves for a beading magazine or book that I hadn't seen yet, with no luck. Had a tearful conversation with Joe, who tried to convince me that the chances were just too high for a crash to happen 2 days in a row. I finally made it to the airport, 2 hours early- just to find NO line for security. That rarely happens. And then I waited. Worried. waited. Boarded the plane and enjoyed a nice white knuckled flight to Syracuse which was literally only 47 minutes long. I enjoyed me some iHop when I got home and am so relieved to be back at my house. I am hoping the plane taking me to New Orleans in 14 days, holds more than just 40 people.

  2. Such a refreshing holiday you had!
    I was thinking of you with your return trip as Id heard about the crash. Such a terrible thing! But your husbands right Lorelei the odds of that are pretty slim. I dont like flying home to Scotland when we go to see Rons family! Its a long 9 hour flight, then a small flight from England to his home...and I pray alot when we do it. So glad your back safe again. Happy Valentines day and heres a flower for you! @)--->>>

  7. So glad that you are home snug as a bug. I understand how you must have felt after that tragedy. If you feel that way again, think of all those family, friends, and bloggy buddies that surround you with loving thoughts and need you around, so nothing can ever happen to you!
