Here is a copy of the email I just sent to US Airlines. It sums up my birthday pretty nicely:

"We showed up at the Las Vegas airport at 5 a.m. for our 6:40 flight, to find that our gate said "more info at 8 a.m." So we waited until 8, when we were told there was a maintenance issue, but it was being resolved. We got on the plane about 9, and taxied around the airport for 45 minutes, to be let off again, and told that we could leave for Phoenix on this plane once a part came from Phoenix to fix the issue. They said it would leave at 11, then they said it would leave at 12. At 12, I went to check, and they switched us to a flight that left Phoenix at 4:30. We took that, and then took the 7:35 p.m. to STL. We were supposed to be in STL by 1:20 p.m. But instead we got there at 11. So we were at the airport 10 and a half hours longer than we should have been. AND IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY! To compensate us, they gave us each a $5 food voucher, which was basically enough to buy a Coke. I will absolutely never fly US Airways again. And I will tell everyone to avoid this carrier. We had such a wonderful, perfect time in Vegas, but the issues caused by your airline truly put a huge damper on our trip. I am hugely disappointed, as this was my first time flying with US Airways."

On top of the above incident, as we were landing in Phoenix, the pilot couldn't get our plane landed properly and as we were supposed to touch down, he had to take off again and the plane tipped sideways. It was very frightening! I am not so much complaining about this, as I am mentioning that it was very scary!

Oh, and Davey's car broke down on the way we didn't make it home until 4 a.m. this morning. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Besides all this, I had a fabulous time in Vegas. The food was AMAZING as was the entertainment...more about that later, though. I think I might go home and take a nap now :)

The view from the office...

I had heard we were supposed to get MORE snow, so before I left work last night, I forwarded calls from the office to my cell phone, just in case we got snowed in. We did get some snow, enough for them to cancel Camri's school, but not really enough to snow us in at our house. So after getting about 7 calls before 9:30, I thought it might be easier for us to just spend the day at work.
Camri has been watching Netflix streaming, so she has been fairly entertained. My dad and Cole stopped by for a visit, too.
Now that we have the February issue done, it is time to start working on March... it will seem like a vacation after working on the jack issue, though :)
Speaking of vacation....I am taking one this weekend. We are headed to Las Vegas for my birthday! On the schedule is Cirque de Solei, eating at Bobby Flay's Mesa grill, and hopefully lots of SUN! It will be my first trip to Vegas, and I am super excited!
Tracy will be here tomorrow, though, so call the office if you need to get ahold of Mules and More. The deadline for advertising and articles for the March issue is February 1. (573)646-3934

You Were The Last Good Thing About This Part of Town...

I found this song while I was transferring some music from my PC to my Mac. Aaahhh, it's great. I forgot that I used to be a FOB fan.

I'm just about done with the February issue. It has to be at the printer's tomorrow, so I guess we will see if I meet deadline soon! It has been snowing all afternoon, which might mean a snow day for Camri tomorrow. She has been a trooper about staying with me at the office while I try to finish this month up, but I doubt she will be too thrilled about hanging out there all day... Maybe her Grandma Lenice will have a snow day, too, and she can hang out there for a bit ;)

Angry Birds

Angry Birds is probably the best thing ever. So, sorry everyone who doesn't have an iPhone, you are seriously missing out.

French fries are the devil.

This made me giggle. But now I must get back to work.
