I am a F***ing IDIOT

For a month and a half I've been saying that I'm flying to visit my parents and to pick up the Kid (who spent most of the summer with them) on August 17.  I checked the flight itinerary multiple times.  I can read, honest I can.

My effing flight was today, the bloody 16th of August.  My mother just called and asked me why I wasn't at the airport.

I feel like an absolute piece of crap right  now.

I can't believe I did this.

If you wait on standby for another flight within twenty-four hours of the scheduled flight, it won't cost you anything.

Looks like it's going to be a meet-in-the-middle road trip instead. My parents actually paid for the flight and they can get a credit for it. They fly a few times a year anyway so it's no money lost.

I'm just angry at myself for doing that!

Omygod. Just the thing I've always been afraid of. Sometimes I even dream that I confused the dates. I hate those dreams.

(sigh) On the bright side, now you can cross it out from the list of 'things to do in my life'. I'm pretty sure there won't be any repeats.

Oh you bet there won't!

Now instead of flying mid afternoon, I'm going on a solo road trip that involves catching a ferry before 630 in the morning!

The good news is, though, I'll be back home sooner than I would have if I'd gotten on that plane.

It's okay, I'm kind of laughing about it now, too! Thank you for the hugs! I likes hugs.

Greetings, from The Holiday Inn Express in Kamloops, where I drove for many hours today to get the Kid instead of flying, woohoo!

And nice to see you in LJ land with the commenting and stuff! How's your beta availability looking?

Oh yes, I made the ferry! I chose to take the 0755 one and got there in plenty of time - but there was also an 0830 sailing just in case!

And meh, I think I'm more traumatized than she is. And she doesn't need icecream - she's one of those naturally hyper kids *shudders*
