Stuck in DFW (freaking again)...

So now about the second time in 6th months, I am stuck in DFW (well Dallas proper, not the airport). My flight to Albuquerque from DFW got cancled after getting delayed many times. But this time, this time I got a freaking plan. LOL.

Seeing the writing on the walls very early tonight, I called up my parents and told them what was going on. Then I had my father pull up southwest website and check to see if there was anything outgoing to night (well, no such luck there), but there was a flight at 11:40am tomorrow (Thursday). Its 100% refundabul, so I told him to book it and if worse came to worse, we could just cancel it if I did not need it.

So after my flight got canceled, I went to talk to a ticket agent and the first flight they could get me on was on Saturday, and closing in fast on Sunday. So right now, I am standby on a AA flight that I have no hope of making due to the fact that there are 40 other people on standby and they flights are already over sold. Also, I am confirmed on something on Saturday but I hope to be long gone by then.

My hope is that by having many options, I will get home faster. I hope everything clears up and tomorrow I am able to go hop on my southwest flight and jet home.

Now, since I am not going to sleep in an airport (esp DFW where it never sleeps), I am at a Radisson that has shuttle service to not only DFW but to Love Field where Southwest flys from. So, the hotel is a bit on the pricey side at 120.00 a night (plus tax), but fuck, it beats paying well over 50 dollars for taxi service to LoveField tomorrow.

So that is it for now. I need to get me some sleep since I got to be up at 7:30am (Central Time).
