Who Booked These Flights?

Evidently the week before Christmas I was in la la land! 

I booked flights back to back days before 7am in the morning when I had a late night meeting in between!

This may be blah to you but I just have to write down what I did yesterday and today.  It is THAT ridiculous.

Well let's start with Monday night at 10pm when I decided to look up what time I flew out the next morning (I thought it was my usual 8am).  Umm 6:15am from Charlotte to Laguardia (NYC) to Norfolk, VA.  2 hours earlier than usual but same route as I have done a couple times before, easy peasy (even though I think it is so silly since I can fly direct from CLT...$$$) minus the early wake up call.

Anyway....so back to yesterday (Tuesday) --

 - Got up at 4:36am (yeah I have an issue and will only wake up in times that end in 6...different story for a different day)
 - Left for the airport just before 5am for a 6:15am flight
 - Got on the flight and it just didn't leave until 6:50am...for no reason!
 - Late getting into Laguardia, therefore missed my 8:30am flight to Norfolk
 - The Club rebooked me for a 9:30am flight to Philly, then Philly to Norfolk
 - Ugh that was the best they could do and quickest I could get there so I thought wow, looks like I'll be picking up 3 segments within about 5 hours haha!
 - Get to Philly - maintenance issue on the plane...delay 45 minutes.
 - 1:30pm - got to Norfolk!  AHH!

THEN!  I got to my hotel at 9:30pm last night after my late meeting and decided I should just confirm I'm on the 9:15am flight from Norfolk to Charlotte.  Ummmmm no, 7:00am flight.  What in the world was I thinking when I booked these flights yall??????

At least I got upgraded to the front of the bus tomorrow for the short trip back to Charlotte.

I should write a book of my travels and the people met along the way.  Seriously...after 4 years of this chaos, it could be entertaining!

Bless you if you have read up to the end of this post!
