The airport part #2

When we were about 1/3 there we get a phone call from son's SO to tell us the storms in Orlando will have the plane delayed an hour to 90 minutes so not to leave home yet - too late. They were due to arrive at 4:30. We stopped to eat and something didn't agree with me. By the time we got to the airport at 4:25 I was sick to my stomach. She called us again to tell us the plane would be delayed even longer. We waited and waited. I felt sicker and sicker. People were sleeping all over the place. Planes could not come in to land. We used my wheelchair since the walk from the parking lot was so far from where we had to go. The plane finally landed around 6 PM, but was stuck on the tarmac because of the planes piling up to unload passengers. After 7PM they finally disembarked but we had a miscommunication as to where to meet. OK... fixed that and met, then couldn't find the right parking lot. Found each other at the Starbucks kiosk or whatever they're called. We get in the car to find both kitties had messed their carriers poop and pee. So for 80 miles we got to smell the poor kittie's mess. We didn't get back here until 11 PM. Exhausted, worn out... they cleaned their kitties up and finally at around 12 AM we sat down to visit for a few minutes than all headed for bed. They took their traveling bags to the RV with the kitties. They're happy to have a place to do as they want, live as they please until settled and find a place of their own to buy.
Thanks to the storms it was a long long long day.
Today we both have Drs appts, then will take them shopping to fill their cabinets and fridge.
