Thursday, June 19

This was supposed to be our last travel day, but it doesn’t quite look like that–our incoming flight was delayed enough that we wouldn’t catch any flights to Lincoln that day and were looking at yet another overnight in Chicago. 🙁 So after a lovely hotel breakfast buffet, and some major but fruitless attempts by the ticket counter personnel to make something happen for us at the other end, we had to settle in for a long wait until our airplane departed at little after 3:30 (rather than at 12:45). We are still hoping that we’ll catch an 8 pm plane home on standby, but our chances were pretty slim. 

Didn’t make it and we spent the night in a Motel 6.
