After being terrified that I'd accidentally canceled the airline tickets for two of our four family members when I made a slight twerk to the planned itinerary yesterday morning, and after spending 8:30pm to midnight on hold with the airline before giving up and going to bed, and then being unable to sleep because I was so upset, and then getting back on hold from 2:23am to 5:15am...

...I finally got to speak with a human being, and everything's straightened out now. Whew! And it didn't cost me anything but sleep.

I'm too relieved to feel anything but gratitude at this point. Tomorrow...oh, I guess it'll be today...I may get around to harboring some resentment against the airline (which shall remain nameless) for its user-unfriendly website and its woefully understaffed customer service lines. But for now I'm just punching the air and whispering, "Awesome!" so that I don't wake anyone else up.

And now to bed, just before sunrise.

Congratulations on braving dealing with people that clearly weren't on their game. That you have the dedication to persist until sunrise makes me quite amused. Anyways, I'm happy that everything got resolved okay and that you finally got to speak with a real person. When I call businesses sometimes they put me on hold forever because, "Our representatives are all busy assisting other customers" or whatever. So good job. :D

Thanks. Sometimes my stubborn refusal to accept reality can have its upside!

Mistress Mommy bought me a new ladylike outfit! A long skirt and a warm fuzzy black blouse. I look good in it in my opinion. But I can't help to think that she did that only to make me feel better. Anyways whatever I love my new outfit yay! <3

Yesterday my partner took me to look at the daffodils in the deer park (a small, remarkably deer-less park in their college). Once we were amongst the daffodils they asked me to marry them. I said yes, it was great.
