Well today started with a rude wake-up. Kirsten went to turn off her alarm and glanced at her e-mail. There were 3 notices saying our United flight to Chicago was CANCELLED!!! Yes lovely. She quickly got on the phone to United who told her we were all rebooked for the next day. Obviously this was not acceptable. 45 min later we were rebooked on US Air with connections in Philadelphia and Phoenix. Not the quickest route home but still get home today.

We arrived at the airport with no problems (a first for our driving). As suspected when we got there the line to United customer services was HUGE (hundreds) with 1 person helping them. Most would miss any option for another flight as they would still be in line. Thank goodness we could go to US Air line and check right in. This was VERY relieving for Chester.

So we now wait for our flight and hope for no more flight delays. Kirsten leaves everyone in Philadelphia so they are on their own after that.
