Christmas Travel Plans

The plan: Reese would bring me to the train station to catch my train at 4:35, he would then head to the airport, catch a 5:30 flight, and arrive around 6:30, giving him plenty of time to pick me up at the train station in Ottawa.
But THEN…
Reese’s plane was delayed until 8:00, putting his arrival time 30 minutes after mine.
LUCKILY…
Reese got moved up to a flight leaving at 6:45, allowing him to arrive before me. Plan back on.
But THEN…
His flight sat on the tarmac for an hour, delayed because of baggage issues.
But THEN…
My train stopped to let a freight train go by. The freight train unkindly decided to break down right in front of my train, delaying us by 2 hours.
SO…
A weary Reese picked up a weary me at the train station, 2 hours later than anticipated, but all according to plan.
