I'm still in Seattle

I'd make a good west coast blogger. I like to get up early, but honestly if I update early and get all my thoughts online I worry that the world is not yet awake and ready and my stuff will get missed in the shuffle. If I lived on the west coast I and I was on twitter at 7am, it'd be 9 or 10am for a lot of people. They could catch up!

Or I could just stick to quieter online communities where stuff doesn't get missed and nobody cares about a "good time" to post.

And there's scheduling... but oh, the agony, when you wish people would reply to your tweet but it's not even up yet.

I get to fly home today. I thought that would happen last night - but I showed up at the airport in the evening and my flight to denver was delayed by a LOT, which meant I'd miss my flight from Denver to Wichita. A whole slew of people were in the same boat. Some flights were being held for them. Mine was not.

So United put me up in a hotel here in Seattle by the airport, since the next Wichita-Denver flight wasn't until 2pm or so the next day anyway, why even fly to Denver. I had a very short cry over not seeing my cute kids & husband when I thought I'd get to see them, then remembered there are bombings elsewhere in the world, so why not enjoy this butternut squash with my food vouchers and watch cable TV - oh, a free night in at a marriott, first world problems right? It was evening, there was nothing around me but more hotels, it was boring, but it wasn't bad.

I'm back at the airport this morning trying the whole show over again.

Wish me luck!

Good luck! Hope you manage to get home today.

I'm on the other side of the world to some of you so there really is no good time for everyone.
