The last few days have been a bit, well, what’s the word…bad? No, that will not do. Terrible. Dreadful. Upsetting. Frustrating. Disheartening. Disappointing. Oh, and tear inducing. Those will work.
Here is my story. I was scheduled to leave Amarillo Friday morning at 6:55 to help prepare everything for my sisters baby shower that is today at 3. I took the day off of work a few weeks ago, and days off are a precious commodity. As you may or may not know Amarillo received a good foot of snow on Thursday resulting in both Ben and I getting the day off! So exciting! Or so I thought.
The Panhandle weather also caused business closures, highway closures, and flight cancellations. As of this moment my flights have been cancelled and rescheduled a total of 3 times. If all goes well, I will be in Austin tonight. I will miss the baby shower and the 3 dozen bird cookies that I made will not be enjoyed. The cookies I spent all day Thursday rolling and baking. Argh. They are cute, no?
I know that I should not complain. Some people have been affected by the weather in far worse ways than I. I am in a warm house and I am safe, so I am thankful for that. I am sad about not being able to see my family. After Southwest called me this afternoon to cancel my morning flight for tomorrow I decided that I needed to make something for dinner that would bring some sort of comfort to my weary soul! Nothing says comfort like chicken noodle soup.
