I have been a Zne Supporter forever, but never logged on to the site. Yesterday, I found the most amazing folks there and I have not been able to stop checking in and seeing what is going on!
I participated in Hold Dear’s Mermaid Swap and received the most beautiful alltered lunch box and mermaid items! Of course said photos are on the MIA camera, but you can imagine!
Extended the stay in the US for 7 additional days and had a blast! I had 5 suitcases to bring back, a stroller and a cranky little girl who FINALLY gets to stay in Sweden! ALL of my bags were overweight ( who knew that the baggage allowance went from 3o kilos per bag down to 23? EVERY hardside bag on wheels starts at 8 kilos, so that is kind of unfair. Anywhoo with a sleeping baby and a skycap that was trying to encourage me to repack my bags and distribute the weight…I agreed to pay what ever it took to get out of Dodge. Plus the check in person was not the nicest person to me, but I figured, she would need me someday, I was on the proverbial high road… The “someday” turned out to be at the gate as all of my friends that are still slaving away at the airline decided to not only upgrade me, but gave me the “wink and the nod” treatment. The “not -so-nice checkin person looked like she was pleading with me not to say anything, but in stead I thanked her for her “help, especially when the baby was sleeping ( I declined to mention that she asked me go leave the line to “repack”. Anywhoo, I ended up getting a refund of my excess charges, which would have made a serious dent in my budget, forgot one suitcase back at the house and had a serious hot Pastrami on Rye at the New York Deli, ‘cept the server forgot my pickles which almost made me tempt the security check- in cue once again and get them…
Did I say that I forgot one suitcase, the stroller and 6 pounds of peanutbutter?
