we spend our life trying to become, but the beauty is in the unbecoming

Delayed (March 2017, Israel)

Mother Ducker, y'all. I assumed God-sponsored trips were immune to cancelled flights. My original flight out of DCA to JFK got pushed and pushed, then cancelled last night, so I missed my connection to Tel Aviv. I thankfully got in line at the gate to rebook, begged my way on to another carrier, and Jeremy picked up my disgruntled, sweaty, tired self. 
I arrived back at 6am this morning for my new itinerary from DC to Newark to Tel Aviv, and apparently the gate agent last night never confirmed my seats. 😭😭😭 My rebooked flight to Israel was full.
The agent today said all she could do is put me on another flight that would delay me another day. I never wanted to drink so early in the day. Seriously. I wish I had one of those mini vodka bottles in my purse.
Cue all of the Biblical Allusions I could muster - #joblife #mygodwhyhaveyouforsakenme #leadmetotepromisedland.
While I was feeling sorry for myself, the gate agent made some calls, begged on my behalf, and got me confirmed on my revised itinerary.
So now I’m waiting at the gate to take off to Newark! Wish me luck as I round two this shit. I won’t rest until wheels are up!
