All I want for Christmas is…my luggage

The trip so far:

– Arrived in Detroit to catch connecting flight…Snow Mageddon hit canceling first flight out
– Stood in a 2 hour queue to be booked on a new flight only to find out 5 minutes later that it, and the next flight out were cancelled, couldn’t get rebooked until Sunday afternoon
– Luckily, the brother in law had booked us a room in the hotel in Detroit airport in case such conditions arose…checked in, called Dad and begged him to pick us up in Detroit the next morning
-Knowing we weren’t flying again went back to the airport to get our luggage back and were told we couldn’t, it would be flown over the next day

– Super Dad arrives at 9:00 and drives us home
– Spent remainder of afternoon buying clothes and toiletries as we were lugageless

…luggageless, ran out to buy clothes as we had a dinner to go to with a dress code of  ‘no jeans’ and all we had were…jeans
Monday …luggageless
Tuesday …luggageless but drove to airport to yell at luggage manager…still luggageless and it started to snow again

Today, we have heard that our luggage  is meant to arrive (by Santa perhaps?)…at this point I really don’t even care, I am getting emotionally attached to my 3 outfits and think that the bottle of vodka we were trying to sneak home in our luggage will have broken all over everything anyway.

    Happy Christmas Eve. I am sure you look lovely in your 3 outfits! Everyone there has colds, so they can’t see and even if they could their voices are so bad they can’t talk to tell you differently.! Santa might even bring extra because of your dilema!
    I hope the bags are being delivered as I type, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
    Aunty L.

    LOL and Merry Xmas! We love your stories but feel your pain! :-)Hopefully Santa has arrived and you are no longer luggageless!
    All is great here..we still have a white Xmas but most of the snow washed away last night in a monsoon. Bren is making his traditional oysters Rockefeller and Wes is playing his new Xbox….the 4th one thanks to billionaire Gates designed flaws! I guess we just contributed to his billions again!
    After our Xmas brunch we will switch gears and traditions and drive to Hampton tonight where we will celebrate Hannaka with the Wolpins.
    Thanks for the Xmas gifts and best wishes. We will be talking to you.
    Love Janet, Bren and Wes
