This past Thursday I was hit by a severe bout of the flu! It totally knocked me off my feet, and for the last 3 days, I've done nothing but rest in bed! I’ve been looked after in the good care of “Dr Beth” and “Nurse Kami “ though :)
It’s now around 3 P.M. Tuesday, and I’m in the lounge at the airport in Washington DC. I was due to fly to Newark at 11:15 this morning. However, I'm still not feeling anywhere near 100%, so I thought I’d get a few extra hours recovery time in bed, and I moved my flight to 2:45. Bad move!
When I arrived at DCA, I was told the flight was delayed an hour due to “mechanical” problems. 20 minutes later, I was told the flight was cancelled. The next flight at 5 P.M. was also cancelled! I was placed on the standby list to go to Cleveland and then to Newark, but I missed out on a seat as there were 2 seats and 3 people on the standby list! Now I’m due to fly to Cleveland at 5 P.M. and will arrive at Newark around 9:30 P.M. I’ll be staying the night with my friend James, and we both fly out to San Francisco tomorrow. Not a lot has happened since I got here—I’ve just been ill and waiting for flights! I am hoping to change that, though, over the next few days as I meet up with everyone in San Fran. The good thing is that I’m feeling a 100 times better than I was this morning.
