Checking in from Chicago. Yesterday was not a good day at all.
Our flight was delayed by an hour - no biggie - I can live with that. We arrived at O'Hare & walked a mile to Baggage Claim. And watched the same stupid ugly suitcases go around & around the thing for about an hour. Finally realized that ours weren't gonna show up. So we had to do the lost luggage thing. That has never happened to me before. I will prepare better next time. Wouldn't have been so bad if we had a car here but we didn't think we'd need one - so hubby trekked a half a mile down the road to pick up some essentials for last night.
By the time we went to sleep last night, they still hadn't found our stuff. I called 1st thing this morning & it's been located - it will be here within 6 hours. Hallelujah!!!!!
So, we're staying at the Wyndham & we have a room on the top floor right near the elevator - the broken elevator. I make numerous trips downstairs because I smoke but I don't like to smoke indoors.
I figured that some Lou's pizza would make everything all right. But, NO!! None of them deliver here. :-( So we got some crappy pizza & naturally they forgot to deliver part of our order. UGH!
There's more but that gives you enough of an idea. There was a big black cloud hanging over my head yesterday. If I was offered the chance to just go back home, I would have taken the opportunity!
Today - I will venture out to get a CTA pass once I get a shower & can put on some clean clothes. I don't even know what area we are in. Des Plaines maybe? Doesn't seem to be much around here that's within walking distance.
It's gotta get better, right?!
