What a Difference a Day Makes

I am so happy that November only had 30 days and not 31, as I wasn't able to post yesterday. For those of you who thought I was just taking a break after 30 consecutive posts that unfortunately wasn't the case at all. There are a number of factors that prevented me from blogging yesterday.
  1. I decided to sleep in. After being a tour guide for 2 days, cooking Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday and getting up at 5 AM on Sunday to travel I really needed a few extra hours of sleep.
  2. Once I checked out of my hotel on Monday I was in customer meetings all day and had no access to Internet. Normally I would just get online at the airport but...
  3. My flight was delayed. I took the last possible flight out of Stockholm to Madrid which involved a change in Amsterdam. As the flight was delayed I would have missed the connection. This meant after walking all the way across the terminal to get to KLM, I had to walk all the way to the other end to SAS. I got to the security gate and was told I should go to a different gate. Which was at the furthest end of the terminal and guess where my gate was - that's right all the way at the other end of the terminal. I definitely got my exercise and did manage to make my connection. However I didn't have any time to get online.
  4. I landed in Madrid at around 1130 PM and didn't get to the hotel until after 12. I actually did try to get online at the hotel but...
  5. The Ethernet cable in my room wasn't working so I had to wait until today before I had Internet access once again.

Excuses, excuses, excuses. I am surprised that you did not use the old homework excuse of the dog ate my homework.
