Not So Bad

I'm home.


I got to the airport just fine, and got checked in. I had verified that the weather in Rockford was good so I expected no delays. JUST to be on the safe side, I asked the lady at the counter if we were good to go.

She handed me a meal voucher. Never a good sign.

We were delayed 4+ hours because of plane issues. Finally got into Rockford around 10:00 last night. Man, it sure was cold!

Lana wasn't as bad as I expected. Mainly because she was surrounded by huge SUV's and Pick-up trucks. Got her all cleaned off and warmed up and headed home.

Yes, the drive was everything I expected and then some. BUT...I just put the door to the garage up and plowed my way through. Seriously, there isn't much that comes between me and something I really want.

Now....the furnace. Well....it was kinda chilly in here. 57 degrees chilly. But no pipes were frozen so I just added a blanket to the bed and hunkered down.

I slept the sleep of the dead.

I managed to get the fan running this morning, so it's starting to warm up in here now, but I'll get someone over here today. No sense taking any chances.

I'm off to the diner for some breakfast and to gather up my mail. Then I'm gonna need some food. Mother Hubbard's got nothin' on me.

Plus....I managed to get this Garmin straightened out and I want to use it. I have YET to make it to my local Wal-mart without getting lost, so I'm gonna give my new toy it's first real test.

If you don't hear from me for a while, look for the flares.

But I'm home. I'm home. I'm home. I'm home.

I just need to get a couple palms for in the house. Then it's ALMOST perfect!

I knew you weren't home when I drove by your place at 7:30 last night, but I didn't think you wouldn't get in until that late.

I should have stopped by on the way home.
