Mechanical Problem - No Flight

Picture mechanical problem with the plane and sitting in the plane for 3 hours. Then move on to 3 hours in line in the terminal to change flights (and no bathroom around). At least the airline put them up for free at the airport hotel. Unfortunately they didn't have their bathing suits for the hotel pool. They have to be back at the airport at 7:30 for a flight to Europe and then on to New England. They'll land in the midst of a lovely end of March snowstorm so I hope they'll get a hotel room at that airport and drive to me the next day after the snow ends. Of course I'm disappointed but am thankful the mechanical problem was found while the plane was checked before the flight. It means less time with Tami and Natalia but we'll make the best of it when they get here. They're safe in a nice hotel and it's free.

Meanwhile I'm on PTO so will go off to scrapbook tomorrow. Can't waste a precious PTO day.

When my alarm goes off tomorrow morning...

Half of my Muscovites will be flying West to my house!!!!! I can't wait. Maybe I'd better take a little something so I can sleep tonight as I am so excited.....

House is clean, groceries are bought (all the favorites), hair is cut and I splurged and had it colored and highlighted tonight and Liesel is bathed and had her pedicure. We're ready!!!!!

I'm washing my dishes from making popovers and I hear a crunching. Liesel in on her mat and I figured she had a chew toy. I go closer and it's my lipgloss. One end is pink and one is a red. Thankfully the red was not completely opened. Now to get it out of her mouth. I grabbed the red end (pink end was gone) and she held on. Once her feet were off the ground, she let go. My left hand was now all smeared with the red lipgloss. I picked up the chewed plastic pieces from the pink end and threw everything away. Where did she get this you are wondering? She stuck her long snout in my snapped pocketbook hanging on the closet door. She is sooooo naughtly and such a chewer.

P.S. She's in rare form tonight. I just saw her run down the hall to the den so I figured I should check on her. She'd been in my pocketbook again and took out my new lipgloss from the dentist which I only got 3 hours ago. She had the cap off and some of it was dug out. She must really have dry lips tonight.


The snow is almost gone in my yard but for the big pile at the end of the driveway from the plow. Thursday it's going to be 60 and 68 on Friday. Spring is coming to CT. Yeah!

Guess who's coming?

The Muscovites recently decided to come and they arrive in a little over a week. This is months ahead of the normal summer visit so I need to do some serious cleaning. Big plans were for getting the upstairs done today but..... There's always tomorrow.

I can't wait to see them!

I am sick listening to the CBS Evening News about the coverage of the US Supreme Court's upholding protestors' rights to demonstrate outside the funerals of our fallen US soldiers who gave their lives while serving our country while proudly wearing the uniform of our armed forces. This is just horrible and I am sickened and so upset hearing this. How must the loved ones' families and friends feel? Not only do they have to live without their loved ones but have to be subjected to this. Where is respect and honor? It's a good thing I was not near any of this as this grandma would get right in and yell right back to those animals and their disrespectful actions. I'd probably end up arrested and it would be worth it.
