My day started yesterday as I boarded Lufthansa headed to Frankfurt, Germany and then on to Katowice. Mom took me and we did a last minute dash to UPS to get the shipment that was accidentally rejected, but we did not get it in time. Mom and I then went to DIA and ended up ring shopping. I have NEVER shopped for rings with my mom before. It was lots of fun and we both got a ring for under $25. The experience with my mom was worth the money! I love my ring too!
Now for the stress of the trip: Yes, my bag was WAY over poundage. I don't know why, I really did not get much. . . yeah, right! Well, mom was saving up for such a time and she graciously paid for my extra luggage weight. Thanks mom!
I got on the plane and just as we started taxiing to the runway, I noticed that I did not have my iPhone anymore! I was panicked! Did someone take it? Did it slip out of my bag? Where did it go? Good news. . . I had two seats to myself the whole trip! It was nice to spread out for 9 1/2 hours. I got to watch "Fame", "Life Happens", and "Harry Potter. . . " Food was okay, and the service was great! I really like this airline.
I got off and had to walk for 30 minutes to the terminal to find wifi to see if I could set my iPhone off. I found a Starbucks, but did not partake. . . I know, stupid, but I want to sleep tonight! I had to pay for wifi, but it was worth it because I found out via Erin my friend in Poland that DIA found my phone. They called her (at 3:30 a.m.). Why? I think it is because it was God's way of making sure I knew it was okay.
After my hour was up for internet access, I had to go through two securities and passport controls . . . I get to go through another one too before the day is up.
I went to McDonalds and tried a German special hamburger . . . burger, beacon, hash brown and this cheese sauce that tastes like mayonnaise, but they said it is not. I only got through 1/2 before I felt like I would gag on it. . . note to self . . . never let a German lady tell you what is good at Mckie D's!
So I sit here now, waiting until 9:25 pm (it is currently 2:30 pm) hoping that the people who are using the only outlet in the whole restaurant will leave sometime before my battery is all used up.
I am spending this time re-working my website!
6 p.m. - I fell asleep with my head on the table at Mc Donald's. I have been told that my gate has been changed so I have to go through a new security since it is not in the same "hall".
7 p.m. - Information was incorrect. I had to go to the other "hall". Security again.
8 p.m. - Found my gate but you cannot go to it and there are no chairs to sit. So I went from gate to gate until the gate attendant kicked me out of the sitting area of each gate. I will NOT go through security again.
9:50 p.m. - On the plane, fell asleep and woke up to the feeling of the plane landing. . . what an unsettling feeling!
11:25 p.m. - My wonderful neighbors came to pick me up. SNOW, SNOW, SNOW! COLD! COLD! COLD!
1 a.m. - Finally get into bed! Whahoo!
5 a.m. - Wake up! Dang, I hate JETLAG!!!
Thanks to my mom and Matt Mullens, I am getting my phone this week!!
