If you've been paying attention to The News, or maybe my Facebook status feed, you won't be surprised to learn that my trip to Wales did not happen. I'm more than a little bummed out about it, and I've shaken my fist at the volcano a few times, but there's really nothing to be done. The only positive is that Continental Airlines turned my non-refundable ticket into a refundable one, so I'm hoping that in however many weeks it takes them to process the refund, I will have a chunk of cash to apply to the debt on my new furnace.
I could have taken the whole week off anyway, but I decided to just take two days and save the rest for later. I may think of something fun and cheap to do with the time (like visit another friend out who invited me out to the Pacific Northwest, maybe? I can use frequent flier miles for that one ...)
So now I'm back to the same old same old, with no lovely memories of my adventures in Wales to shore up my spirits.
Maybe I need to bake a cake or something ...
