Good morning Mintdom
Today, my steps will improve because I am heading home. I am sad to leave and happy to be going home! I have a GREAT life! I love my job, my friends, and my family, and I am looking forward to settling back into a routine. My only eeeckkk is that Northwest / Delta Airlines, canceled my 4:00 flight from Bemidji to Minneapolis and cannot get me on the 3:00 flight so, I will end up spending 6 hours in the airport. That is 1 hour more then my 88-year-old aunt had to spend on her way home. It is a shame that there is not really an alternative airline, because if there were, I would take it! Anyway, my plan is not to sulk and pout (maybe a little lol), my plan is to work on clearing out e-mail, work on my budget, work on health calendar, write an article for my community newsletter, and come up with a menu for the next couple of weeks with a grocery list. I also have a good book to read and I might even write to you! I only need to find a comfortable chair to sit in.
Oh – I want to tell you one sort of funny thing. The delta agent apologized for the inconvenience of course, but I could not resist giving her my complaint AND I added my aunt’s delay and the delay I had on the way up that caused me to get here a day late. I told her that they were not doing well in my eyes. The agent apologized again. I said ok, thank you, but before I got off the phone, she asked me if I wanted to sign up for the Delta credit card! Can you believe that? I laughed as I hung up the phone! LOL!
“I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.” -Everett Dirksen**
Ok, OK – I am flexible, but grumpy about it! LOL!
AffirMINTion: I go with the flow!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good!
