Funny Story...I almost BLEW IT!!

SO...very calmly about a week ago I was putting together the details for me trip to Saskatoon.  I am singing at Elim Church, with a 70 voice choir and a symphony...GONNA BE GREAT!!  I took my flight details, placed them in the appropriate spot in my calendar, planned what I needed to bring etc...Had it all organized and never thought anymore about it.

Yesterday...I was in a coffee shop doing some work when I saw a Facebook post from the musical said "...Kevin Pauls is enroute and will be here soon..."  I liked the comment and then thought, isn't he pushing it a little, I don't fly out till tomorrow...and then like a wave, this incredible feeling of "YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!"  I looked on my ticket and yes the date was 11/12/13...reading this in November was not helpful!!!  I placed this on my calendar for the 12th of Dec NOT the 11th!!!

I called the musical director and told him and called WestJet right away...

BUT - just minutes before I found this out...I was given Leaf tickets...I was on my way home to change to go to the game when my worst fears were confirmed. I had indeed marked the flight in the wrong date...WestJet placed me on the 6pm flight out of Toronto direct to Saskatoon.  I packed in about 20 minutes!!!  My daughter came to the rescue and drove me to the airport...

I am now calmly sitting in my hotel in Saskatoon, drinking thankful that yesterday's madness was over!!!  Now it is time to sing!!

Thank you Blaine Eagle for not being angry!!!  OR at least not taking it out on me!!!  I am so thrilled to be in Saskatoon for this incredible event.
