Friday’s Luck

*Let me preface this post by saying that I was attempting to post it on Friday night, but as you read on, you’ll find out why the best laid plans suck*

1.

The bad news: our flight from St. Paul to Anchorage was cancelled at 5:30 pm last night.

The good news: I’m alive and in good health due to the diligence of the airline and not flying in foggy weather.

2.

The bad news: we handed over the keys to both our house and car yesterday afternoon, leaving us virtually homeless.

The good news: the Key Master for St. Paul School employees was still in the building when we discovered that we would be staying another night in Chez Ferrari.

3.

The bad news: our cupboards and refrigerator are 100% empty.

The good news: the A.C. Store was still open, and their shelves were stocked.

4.

The bad news: we shipped our Dish Network receiver home Friday, just after checking in for the flight that was cancelled.

The good news: I really, really, really liked reading without having to compete with ESPN in the background.

5.

The bad news: I didn’t run yesterday because I thought I would be in Michigan to get in an afternoon run once we got home.

The good news: I ran 6 miles this morning and walked to the store to buy more provisions.

6.

The bad news: I forgot to buy coffee.  I got a caffeine-withdrawal headache.  I walked to the store this morning so I would be there as the doors were unlocked for business.

The good news: Folgers makes single-serving bags.  I’ve had three cups.

7.

The bad news: We are carless and had to run errands.

The good news: I was able to put an end mark on my time on St. Paul Island by walking and taking in the beauty of the scenery and oceanic scent.

8.

The bad news: We’re leaving today.

The good news: We’re leaving fuller than when we arrived.
