Ohio Is For Those Not Stuck In Virginia

OK, false start. Aeroflot sucks. They missed their flight to Dayton because Aeroflot was 30 minutes late and forgot to call for a shuttle to pick up the passengers from their holding area. If it wasn't for those two glaring failures on Aeroflot's part, they would be home right now. Stupid Aeroflot.

Good news is that they're staying at my dad's home near the airport in Virginia and they have confirmed seats on an 830 flight tomorrow. They are also fortunate to at least have their luggage, so a shower and fresh clothing is available to them.

So.... again, Aeroflot sucks.

In other news, the kids are worn out and everyone had a rough day. I'm tired and sick, but I cannot complain because I'm sleeping in my own bed tonight.

Perhaps tomorrow this will be over.

Oh, I finally sold the range that has been sitting in my garage since we moved into our new house. Victory.

Here's some Christmas cheer for everyone...

Christmas time
On a cold December morning
All is calm
And the world is still asleep

Christmas lights
That have been caught without warning
Gently glitter on
Stars to wish upon
All the world is at peace

Christmas time and the year will soon be leaving
Cloaked in time till it's just a memory
Christmas stays if we don't forget its meaning
Days go quickly by
Years they multiply
And we go searching for thee

And the dream is still alive
From that first December morning
And it always will survive
As long as we can see
That the dreams we find in life
Are the dreams we tend to seek
And Christmas has its promises to keep

Christmas time
And the moments just beginning
From last night
When we'd wished upon a star

If our kindness
This day is just pretending
If we pretend long enough
Never giving up
It just might be who we are

And so it's good that we remember
Just as soon as we've discovered
That the things we do in life
Will always end up touching others

So from a fading neon star
Somewhere shining in the night
We find a father far away
Now reflecting in its light

Good night, and God bless.
