Christmas Ornament in a Tree

Christmas Vacation 2014 – It was sooo cold

I am back from my Christmas vacation.  I had intended to update my blog more often than I did, but I had to use WordPress for Android.  Unfortunately, I reached my roaming data limit very quickly.

The Weather

Mother nature tried it’s best to get in the way of my plans.  My plans were changed on many occasions because of snow, icy roads, and extreme cold.  I was not even sure that I would get back home because the weather got bad on the day of my flight. During most of the trip, it was so cold.

The Airline

The airline did an okay job.  On the way to my destination, everything went well without incident.  I did my best to get some rest despite the screaming kids on the plane.  A bad snow storm had started just as I was going to the airport to come home.  There was a delay due to missing flight crew.   The airline did a good job of de-icing the plane so that I could get home safely.  I am still unhappy with the number of delays that I had to tolerate and the long wait for my luggage.  I got back home at 2am!

The Health

My health remained pretty good during the holidays.  I didn’t have any problems on the airplane or during my travels while visiting my family.  I made sure to bring along a good supply of my medicine so that I wouldn’t run out.  I did eat a lot more than I wanted.  My sisters and I have formed a small weight loss support group to try to help each other lose the weight we gained last year.

The Family

My family was all happy to see me.  When I arrived home, I was given a gift in the way of some cash to help pay for travel expenses during the holidays.  Who could ask for a better Christmas present?  Despite the weather issues and flight delays, it was great to see them.
