We left home yesterday morning at 5 am. Our flight out of Manchester was at 6:20 am. Went off without a hitch.

Got to Chicago Midway at 8:30 am. At 10am, they cancelled a flight into Minneapolis (not ours). That should have been the first clue though.

After 14 hours at Midway, including 4 hours on a plane on the runway, they said that they *might* have a flight going to Minneapolis at 11pm. Might. Of course, we'd already missed our connecting flight to Bismarck. There wasn't anotherflight that would get us in before 8pm on Christmas Day.

We canceled our flights, demanded a refund and so now we're spending the week in downtown Chicago, and flying back to Manchester on Saturday. We thought about just going home, but we already paid the pet sitter, and she won't refund the 300 bucks. So might as well let her walk the dogs. Once we got past that, we considered going various places... Vegas, Orlando, Los Angeles...

In the end we decided just to stay here and hang out. Have a downtown Christmas. Maybe hit the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium.

Oh, and to console ourselves....we bought each other iPods at the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue. Gotta love the Magnificent Mile. Go figure.
