Trying to Look at the Glass Half Full

So, remember when I was trying to book a romantic getaway for me and Scott?

And we were going to go to Hilton Head, South Carolina?

And Expedia wouldn't let me BOOK IT, despite my multiple clicking attempts?

Well, if things had gone my way, we would have been in Hilton Head last week.  Strolling hand-in-hand on the beach in front of our hotel, the Marriott Resort & Spa.  Completely immersed in each other as we gazed out at the ocean on a lovely Monday evening, oblivious to our surroundings.

Luckily I'm not in charge.

I think Expedia saved my life.  Now that's some customer service.

What a bizarre story!

I've been living a little too near the news for comfort. The Ft Hood shooter was at, well, Fort Hood, where most of our neighbours work (as well as the hubby, of course), and the IRS plane crash guy took off from the airport quite literally down the street from us, about a quarter mile. And the IRS building in Austin? I had to pass it THAT MORNING to get to the doctor. I ended up taking a roundabout way.

Well, that was nice of them.

OMG! Not what you expect to happen on the beach! We went to Hilton Head last August with our daughter and are returning again this year, we just loved it there. We heard while there about a man attacked by a 17 foot Tiger Shark while fishing from the beach, and about the big alligator that had appeared on the public beach the week before, but planes falling from the sky you do not expect. Dangerous business, going on vacation! But I am still really looking forward to our trip!

Isn't it amazing how things worked out. I'm glad your plans didn't work out!

Sadia: Whoa, that's a lot of bad stuff your way! Good thing I wasn't planning a vacation in Texas, either. ;-)

Jen: Ha ha!! Wasn't it, though? I feel like I should send a thank you note.

AgingMommy: Sharks? ALLIGATORS? Who knew Hilton Head was such a scary place!!! I don't care either, I still want to go. Rescheduling will happen someday...
