                            Travel day—- drive 75 miles to bus station, with doggos and walked laps in the shade with them for an hour before boarding. Rode 5+ hours to Portland, drove granddaughter to my ex-husb’s for her to stay, then back to my daughter’s condo. Talking to my ex was interesting…..😵‍💫

                            Dinner with daughter, shower, bed, with plans for super early AM drive 3 hours north to SeaTac for 9am flight Fri morning…..

                            THEN! Alaska texted me at 9:30pm that our flight was cancelled😵‍💫I called them to reschedule, and got a flight out of Portland at a decent hour in the morning, to land at another WA DC area airport tomorrow around the same time as the cancelled flight. So we changed the return flight as well, to land back in Portland, Sun night. Good thing we didn’t drive to Seattle tonight only to find this! Also good thing we hadn’t already gone to bed!!😜😂
