I think I got plenty of exercise today.
Due to a miscommunication I thought the girls had already left for AZ last Monday. They were scheduled to leave today. I guess I should have asked the exact date they were leaving. Their grandmother couldn't take them to the airport so last night I drove up and dropped Jared off and picked them up. I brought Jared's broken Lawn tractor home too.
He didn't tell me that his grandmothers yard was a swamp so I pulled in to the grass to turn around like I have a thousand times before and I sunk. I stuck the Ox in 4wd and it immediately came out. That truck is a tank. Jared said his Uncles Ford had to be pulled out.
The new meds the doc has me on just flat knock me out. I don't know what time I went to sleep last night, but Steph woke me up at noon. SHesh.
So I grabbed my thermos and we left.
The great thing at the airport was that the new parking lot was open so we got to park close.
We went in and got the tickets and were told that there was an hour delay. I wasn't planning on going to the gate with them. They gave me a gate pass so I could to wait with them. I remembered I had a credit card knife in my wallet so I went over to a rack of brochures and slipped it in the middle of them. IT only cost $2 so I wasn't worried about loosing it.
When we got to the screening area and I emptied my pockets i found my $100 Spiderco knife. I wasn't chancing loosing it. SO I told the girls to wait on the other side of the screening and I hoofed it out to the truck. I snagged my CC Knife on the way out.
I got back in with my ankle throbbing. We made our way to the gate and checked in. I talked to the gal at the gate a bit then we went to get a bite to eat.
There was no where near their gate to sit so we sat at a Delta gate and ate. We wandered back to the SouthWest gate to see how things were going and it was still delayed.
We went back to the Delta gate and sat a while. Allison and I played a game on her laptop.
They both went to the restroom and then the gal from the gate came over and said they were closing the doors. I grabbed all the luggage and started over. I saw Allison and told her to haul it back to get Emily and tell her to run.
When we got to the gate Allison said that her coat was still at the Delta gate. So I ran. back. And I mean I ran. Not I walked fast. I got the jacket back to the gate just in the nick of time.
It is a good thing I was harassing the gal at the gate because she remembered us. My ex would have been on the warpath if they missed the flight.
After I caught my breath and could walk without wobbling so much I made my way out of the airport. My bad ankle is throbbing. It feels like someone drove a nail through it.
Once I hobbled back to the truck I made my way out of the maze built for tiny vehicles and not a huge house on wheels, and departed.
20 minutes later I was sitting in the parking lot at Pull-A-Part.
I needed parts for 3 different vehicles. One of which was seat belt latches for the Ox. I was down to 2 working ones.
The computer there only showed 1 Suburban. I found 4. One with the right color belts- way at the back of the lot. I snagged them and headed out. They didn't have the other two cars - both of which needed drivers side mirror covers. Both driven by women.
Traffic wasn't too awful on the way home. I made it just in time to watch CHiPs.
My ankle is killing me.
