So, apparently I *AM* that mom...

I dropped JazzyGirl off at the Greyhound station this morning at 5am. The bus out was at 5:50, and even the very early run of the #19 bus wasn't early enough to get her there on time. Plus, it sucks to take transit with luggage - been there, done that on too many business trips. Bah.

I came home and went back to bed, but it took a while to fall asleep. She's gone on short trips alone - out to Abbotsford on the bus to see Roommie, or to the Island to visit pondside - and once she did fly by herself to Alabama to visit the grandparents (for her 16th birthday) but when she got to Seattle, fenchurch met her at the bus and took her to the airport. This time she's all by herself and IT'S MAKING ME TWITCHY!

When I woke up, I had a text from her - someone had gotten off the bus just before it left in Vacnouver because they forgot something; then, at the border crossing, they discovered that the people had taken her bag and left their own.


Then, when she got into Seattle, the guy at the counter told her that the itinerary she had booked and paid for on the Greyhound site didn't actually exist - no buses actually go that way. They had to rebook her entire trip, delaying it by about 6 hours, which means she'll get into Denver around midnight Sunday instead of 6 in the evening like she'd planned.

*rolls eyes*

Greyhound. When you really want it done right wrong.

I am, however, appreciating text messaging in a way I never have before. I am so glad she can just text me and tell me what's going on. I reminded her to get the Bell add on for US travel before left; it's only $30, and while it won't cover 5 dozen phone calls and a bazzilionty texts, at least it won't cost an arm and a leg for everything.

Is she in Seattle now- or has she already left? If she's here, I can run down to the station and check on her.
