Home Sweet Home

I made it home.


Traveling has really, really not been fun lately.

At all.

Monday was a 16 hour day of travel (scheduled only to be 6 hours), and Thursday was literally a travel day from hell.

I was scheduled to come home Thursday night from Indianapolis. However, I didn't get home until Friday at 1:00 p.m.

Thursday, i was raring to get home to Mr. Ruby because I hadn't seen him in four days, and I knew he had to work this weekend. Plus, I had some major business to tend to at work on Friday.

So, we're all boarded on a a flight to Charlotte, (I was already nervous because I only had a 30 minute layover) and I've noticed we've been sitting there for quite a while. Finally, the plane starts to take off and then suddenly stops.

The pilot gets on the loud speaker and notifies us that we aren't going anywhere because the steering wheel was broken.

The steering wheel was stuck? Really?

So. We sit on the plane for another hour and a half until someone could tow us off the runway.

Then, we get back inside the airport to wait in line to reroute each and every one of our flights. People started rioting.

Ok, maybe it didn't classify as an actual riot, but every was shoving, screaming, and yelling profanities at the airline crew. I mean, people were being so incredibly rude. I was embarrassed.

It was just one, giant cluster of angry, rude people.

Once they got everyone calmed down, we stood in 1 line for an hour and a half, and then had to go stand in another line for a hotel voucher.

Long story short, I got settled into bed at 2 am and had to be back at the airport by 5:30 am.


Made it safely. Went straight home, showered, and went into work.

On the secret front - I'm getting antsy to share, but you'll just have to hang tight until the big reveal on Monday. ;)
