Not Coming At You Live From Des Moines
I'm extremely disappointed. I am not in or on my way to Des Moines at this very moment. I couldn't sleep last night, I kept tossing and turning, thinking maybe I should show up at the airport for the 6:30 a.m. flight and see what happens. Tickets never dropped below $930. I hate the airline industry. I am really annoyed with myself for not having bought tickets earlier -- I don't know what I was thinking -- I seriously just forgot to buy them or something, and suddenly here the weekend is. And I'm annoyed at myself for stupidly using my miles for a fun trip! I don't like to not get my way, and I really thought somehow things would work out and I would make it to the reunion today. Instead, here I am, sitting on the couch at 9:26 a.m. Fri. and I am not on an airplane bound for Iowa. Arrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh.
