Beautiful Love

Yesterday was one of the worst days of my life. Traveling is never fun, however anything that could go wrong, went wrong, and then some. Both of my flights were delayed for over an hour, the second one delayed prior to boarding and THEN AGAIN once we boarded. I put my bags under the seat, only to discover after I pulled them out and carried them, I had someone's chewed gum all over my bag AND my pants. It was horribly hot. I could go on, but you get the idea. Dave (formerly known as "the boy") was a bit frustrated with my poor attitude. By the time I arrived in Detroit I was a mess. It took the airline an entire hour to get our luggage on the turn-style (wtf?) Although we had decided that Dave wouldn't pick me up due to his crazy schedule, he knew I was in a bad state and called me to say he was on his way to get me. We arrived at my apartment and he said that I should go up and get settled while he ran to the store to get me a pack of smokes and some sangria. I was fully unsuspecting........I arrived at my door to find a red heart taped to the door. My first thought that it was my neighbor who I had given some art supplies to their children and it was a little thank you note. I removed the heart and opened the door......only to find red hearts taped to the walls throughout my entire apartment and red hearts hanging from the ceiling by white ribbons throughout the entire apartment. What an incredible feeling to know that someone loves me enough to take the time to do something so incredibly special. What a beautiful end to what was a horrible day! Someone loves me :o)

I'm glad "the boy" finally has a name. I am, however, not happy to read the word "smokes" in your blog, missy. I thought you gave up those cancer sticks.

Ummmm, I thought of you when I typed that....crap! I am trying to quit again. I was actually planning to quit while at Yale....not so much. I am going to the clinic to see what smoking cessation assistance they offer.......I MUST quit! (Sorry Chica!)

I'm sorry you had crappy travels. That sucks. At least the day turned out good in the end. ;-)
