Delayed

by Meghann on May 3, 2010

Good Morning!

After a full day of fun and a few hours of sketchy sleep I am sad to say I am safely back on the east coast. My vacation came to an end much too quickly. 🙁

Our red eye from San Francisco to Atlanta could not have gone smoother. Derek and I lucked out with a row of seats to ourselves and I happily passed out across the row. Derek’s lap made a great pillow. 😉 I have no memory of taking off or the drink cart going by at any time which I believe is a good sign I was passed the heck out.

The landing was really the only shaky part. A storm was cutting across Atlanta and it made for a bumpy ride. We survived though and landed safely on time.

Derek and I bee lined it to Atlanta Bread Company for breakfast.

 

I ordered a multi grain bagel with egg and was surprised how thin the bagel was.

 

I was thankful for the random apple in my bag to add a little fruit to my meal.

 

A tall STRONG black tea was a must.

 

Unfortunately we discovered while eating breakfast that out flight has been delayed a good hour and a half.

 

booo…..Now we are patiently waiting for the flight to board, so we can finally go home. Being delayed after a full night of flying is no bueno. 🙁

Here’s hoping we’re not delayed much longer!

Good luck getting home! Flight problems are the worst, especially on the tale of a fun time

2 Jenny May 3, 2010 at 12:30 pm

At least yall have each other to keep company!

Oh man, sorry about the delay and the bagel. It looks more like a bagel thin than real bagel :-(. At least you had a nice apple to go with it!

4 Chloe May 3, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Man, I hate flight delays, especially for the second flight. Hopefully you can get out of there soon! At least you have Derek to keep you company!

Flight delays are the worst! Hope you make it home soon. 🙂

That sucks. I actually just booked a flight to Hilton Head and there is a layover in between in Atlanta – hopefully I won’t be delayed! Imagine that – I am actually getting on a plane this year!

Sorry to hear you are stuck! Hope you can move our and up soon

8 Megan @ The Oatmeal Diaries May 3, 2010 at 12:48 pm

I love Atlanta Bread Co! Your breakfast looks tasty 🙂

9 clairedille May 3, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Yeah, delays are no fun! The bagel sandwich sounds delicious though..

Ugh, so frustrating. I hate waiting for a delayed plane after already getting off another one. The worst was my four-plane, 34-hour jaunt home from New Zealand. It was never ending!!

11 Kristen May 3, 2010 at 12:55 pm

Sorry to weather here in Atlanta is not more welcoming for you guys. I tink it’s gonna be nasty all day. Good luck getting out & safe travels home!

Booo. Hope it works out for you guys

13 culturalcravings May 3, 2010 at 1:06 pm

Hope it works out soon! And yeah…that’s not a great example of a bagel. I think I can make that statement, as I have two qualifications for being a bagel aficionado 1) I’m from New York 2) I basically lived on bagels for about 6 years of my life. 🙂

14 Matt May 3, 2010 at 1:13 pm

I hate air travel! Always so unreliable…

15 Sana May 3, 2010 at 1:15 pm

I hope you get back soon!

16 NYCRunnerGirl May 3, 2010 at 1:18 pm

So frustrating! Delays are almost inevitable. Get home safely!

17 Kelly May 3, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Being delayed is the worst!

18 thewhatkateateblog May 3, 2010 at 1:22 pm

Hope your delay isnt totally wretched! Nothing like an end to a relaxing vaca than a bummer of a delay!

19 theprocessofhealing May 3, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Sending positive thoughts your way!

20 kamadavitta May 3, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Very frustrating! Nothing like a little adventure to end your trip. 😉 Get home safe!

21 Jocelyn @ Peace.Love.Nutrition May 3, 2010 at 1:37 pm

Seems like you had a great vacation!! I love when I have a full row on a plane. I lucked out when I flew to India and had an entire row to myself! Unfortuniately on the way home it wasn’t the same- I was next to a crying and sick 3 year old!

22 jen trinque @ recipes for creativity May 3, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Aw, sorry you’re delayed, but I bet you’re home by the time I hit send on this comment!

23 Carolyn @ lovinlosing.com May 3, 2010 at 2:40 pm

Hope you made it home okay!!

24 Michelle May 3, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Wow that sounds like a fabulous red eye. I have never lucked out on red eyes. I get super sleep deprived and get really nauseous and start shaking. It’s absolutely awful. But I hope you get home safely!

25 kalli@fitandfortysomething May 3, 2010 at 3:52 pm

welcome home! glad you had such a great time 🙂

26 runningwithsass May 3, 2010 at 4:05 pm

ug! this is why i hate flying and non-direct flights, BOO!

27 missyrayn May 3, 2010 at 4:09 pm

I’m glad you had the opportunity to sleep. I have a hard time sleeping on flights so I try to avoid the red eye.

I hope you are safely home now.

28 amanda May 3, 2010 at 4:24 pm

Sucks about your delay, hope you made it home okay. 🙂

29 Christina May 3, 2010 at 5:24 pm

That is a really thin bagel! You need a New York one 🙂 Hope your flight takes off ASAP!

30 caronae May 3, 2010 at 7:48 pm

Thin bagels are the worst — if I’m gonna have one, it might as well be nice and fluffy. Safe travels!

31 Katherine: What About Summer? May 3, 2010 at 7:59 pm

Katherine

32 Amanda @ Cakes and Ale May 3, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Ah, modern day air travel… always fun, no? 🙂

I always love taking a long, hot shower after a day of traveling… that and a big bowl of ice cream!

33 Simply Life May 3, 2010 at 8:07 pm

Yum, that bagel looks perfect!

34 Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 3, 2010 at 9:00 pm

It looks like you had an amazing vacation! It always sucks when a good time comes to an end!

35 Gabriela @ Fro-Yo Lover May 3, 2010 at 9:17 pm

I hope you´re safe and at home right now 🙂
Wish you a great night, love!
