Bon Voyage, Airline Travel Snags, Unplugging in December
Hi Friends! Life has been crazy. We were supposed to depart late Friday night on a red-eye for our trip to Aruba but our flight was canceled at the 11th hour. I spent my day Friday re-booking our flight, but turns out we ended up having to leave five hours earlier than expected so my entire day Friday was a scramble fest. And I do mean scramblefest.
It was either that or not get there for a day after we were supposed to which would have thrown off car rental reservations and a host of other issues including arriving on a Sunday and grocery stores aren’t open on Sundays there and after 24 hours of travel and airports, a shower and a grocery store are key.
I am actually blogging from the Salt Lake City Airport and the wifi connection sucks. Super slow and I can’t upload pictures it’s so slow. Janetha, if I had more time we could grab a drink together. Not coffee, a real drink, after my day today!
We have an extra connection now and are flying SAN-SLC-JFK-AUA. Rather than SAN-ATL-AUA. So suffice to say, travel is always a hairy experience. Reminds me of when we were moving from Phoenix to San Diego and the morning of our move, with our house in boxes and ready to leave, the moving truck broke down on the side of the road and I had to call another moving company at the 11th hour. But….
….The next time I post will be from here! And all the scrambling will be worth it!
Hopefully with one of these in my hands soon!
I will enjoy being with my family, on the beach, making memories, more than I will enjoy responding to blog comments, answering reader questions, or commenting on more than a handful of blogs each day.
Please understand, friends and other bloggers, I really need this vacation and plan to really scale back my commenting on other blogs. As most of us likely will be doing over the holidays, anyway.
Thanks for the tips on how to do screenshots easily. Learn something new all the time! So many of you knew about screenshot shortcuts on Macs. Any other shortcut tips for me that you love?

Break out the rum, baby!
1. Have you ever taken a technology break?
As I said, I am still posting, but just not as long or intense of posts. I also have a few give aways coming up this month (nice ones, i.e. chocolate, $50, $25 credits to places, so stay tuned!). I look forward to reading more, too!
2. Have you ever had any airline or travel drama stories?
I did a whole post on my top 20 Travel Tips, too. If you missed it, check it out. I have had my share of snags, but also travel joys.
3. Any MAC shortcuts you want to tell me about?
4. What are you doing for the weekend?
I will be in travel hell for another 18 hours between traveling, rental car, grocery run, unpacking, making sure my house is in order, and by Sunday morning will have slept and will be ready to start relaxing!
See you soon, everyone! I can’t wait to replace my 20 minute at-home workouts with beach walks!
