I think I told all of you that my sister was going to LA this month for a week. Well a day and a half ago she boarded her plane with her B/F at 9:00 PM. RIGHT before the plane was getting ready to take off her B/F had a panic attack and decided he couldn't fly so he got up and made them let him off the plane. My 18 yr sister had the whole trip already payed for including a really nice hotel in Beverly Hills and a couple different things they planned to do there already payed for also. She went ahead ALONE to LA. She called my mom crying, my mom called me. We booked my mom a flight yesterday to go meet her and spend the week there with her so she isn't alone.
Well after we got my mom's flight booked my sister called at 1 AM and her plane had landed. I talked to her for a bit and we hung up so she could go get her suitcases. She was supposed to call back. She called again at 2:30 AM and her suitcases and her B/F were ALL LOST! So here she is in LAX with her purse, no meds she has to take, not even a pair of shoes because she wore her slippers on the plane, and a pillow. She went and filed the paperword she needed for her lost luggage and grabbed a cab to go check into her hotel. The hotel is 11 miles from LAX, I talked to her while she was in the cab. Her cab driver barely spoke english and for some reason it took them almost 40 minutes to get to her hotel. She FINALLY got to her upper class hotel that was not cheap by any means in her slippers, by herself at around 3:10 AM. It really was 1:10 there but here in MN it was after 3. OK whew she made it to her hotel lol. We hung up I went to bed.
I get up yesterday to go and take my mom to the airport. We get there with plenty of time for her to board her plane. I hugged and kissed her and she was off. My sister had woke up and still had no luggage. The airport said it was still in Minneapolis??? So she was going to check again when she went at 4:20 to meet my mom to see if it had been found yet. First off, my sister forgot about the time change of two hours and was still following our time. She called me at 1:30 California time and was in a cab on her way to meet my mom at the airport. She called me and I said "Uh, honey it is only 1:30 there" lol. So she had the cab driver turn around and went back to her hotel.
She then left again to meet my mom at theright time this time and you would not believe this! She called when my mom arrived while she was standing in the office to see if her luggage had been found (which it had! It was enroute to her hotel) and my mom's suitcases were MISSING now! Can you imagine? Both of them had their luggage lost lol! They took it in great spirits though. My mom was cracking up at the irony that here she was flying out in 12 hours notice to meet my sister so she wasn't alone and her suitcase gets lost also! Unreal! I would say SOMEONE in the Mpls airport has NO business working in the baggage claim area.
I am still so sick! But I think today I may be a tiny bit better. I am so run down. Have any of you ever noticed that when us mom's are sick we just keep going because we have to, but when your hubby gets sick he is dying?? lmao Why is that?
My daughter had a blast on her trip last week! She took two disposable cameras full of pictures. I got them developed this weekend and on Sunday when she got home from her dad's I took her to get a scrapbook and scrapbooking stuff for the trip. She has finished 6 pages and it is so cute so far!
Well I am off to make some tags and then go run some errands. My heart is going out to all of the people that were impacted by the storms and tornados yesterday! Please keep all of them in your prayers. Also for the families of the victims who lost their live's! Crazy weather going on all over the place. Mother Nature is busy!
