Get us Outta Here!

US Airways so kindly sent us this lovely email yesterday afternoon:



We regret to inform you that US Airways flight # 705, from Frankfurt to
Charlotte on Dec 22 at 11:40 AM is delayed. Your estimated time of
Departure is 3:50 PM.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for choosing US Airways.

Insert Cara's bummed out face, or in this case Luis's "I Don't Like This One Bit" face.  


Fortunately, we were able to cancel our train that was set to leave about this time actually and rebook a later one.  We get into the airport around 1:00, giving us a nice, cushy 3 hours before departure time to get through all the chaos that undoubtably awaits us.  

Oh but wait, did I say 3 hours? Make that 4 as US Airways, just now, so kindly emailed us again with the following:

No need to insert bummed out face again just yet because as long as we make it into Charlotte before 11:45 Thursday morning, when our new connection is scheduled. we will still be able to enjoy the beaches of Puerto Rico in a mere 24 hours or so.  At least we are not part of the "millions stranded" due to flight cancelations at Frankfurt International earlier in the week.  (Knock on wood)!

Perk to the delay: Enjoying a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs and hash-browns with my man.  Added bonus: using up my eggs and potatoes!  Which speaking of using things up, here is what we thought of my "how can I use up all these random things I have in the fridge?" bread:


It was not overly sweet but very moist.  The crumble topping didn't stick quite as well as I would have liked, but it added that little extra sweetness that kept us coming back for more.  

Does anyone else find it extremely unfair that my husband packed away 3/4 of it without even flinching?!?! The calories and carbs in this sucker go in him like that of water i.e. as if the thing was free of all the yummy things that add not so yummy things to girly bodies like mine.  I am quite jealous actually.  Sinful, I know, pray the Lord forgives me.  Or that he gives me whatever calorie destroying machine Luis has so that I too can eat 3/4 of a loaf of sweet apple cranberry bread full of refined white flour and delicious brown sugar.  

Oh yeah, I believe it's called a metabolism.  And being a professional athlete.  And just being a dude under the age of 40.

After reading your blog yesterday I tried to write a comment and apparently it didn't come through, so I'll try again. I am technically challenged - does my age have anything to do with that fact - Naw! I know there would be nothing left of the cranberry/apple coffee cake if your Papa had been there to help Luis sample your culinary skills. I think you have a Pinocchio nose when you say you love snow. What couple said they didn't want to live in CO because it was too cold? Did I tell you wwe had 24 inches last Friday and it took us over 3 hours to shovel the driveway? Julie and Joshua helped us or we would never have made it. However, most of it is gone and now we have mud and slosh - yuck! I'm glad you're not a desperate housewife. I have never felt bored. People ask me what I do with my time, but somehow I seem to be as busy as the rest of the world. It makes your Papa's life a whole lot less stressful when I can keep the home fires burning. I am blessed to be able to be a haus frau too. I had fun reading your blog and look forward to learning more new things about you as an individual and about you as a couple. The Wind Grinch has been around too much lately, but Mr. Sun still shines in Cedar Crest. Loving you both - enjoy P.R. Hello to Luis and the Robles family. N.B.
