Sitting Here Pouting

I am so bummed!

I should be on an airplane somewhere over the pacific at this very moment on my way to Los Angeles. Thanks to Mom Bloggers Club, I was supposed to attend the Eastman Kodak Mom Blogger event in Irvine California this evening. It was to be dinner, mimosas, and lots of fun activities as Eastman Kodak shared with us all the wonderful things you can do at the Kodak Picture Kiosk including create photo books, Picture Movie DVD’s, collages, 5×7 or 8×10’s, poster prints and Greeting cards . . . all in just a matter of minutes.

Instead I’m home with what seems like either food poisoning or the stomach flu. Either way it’s not a pretty sight.

So now I’m sitting here drinking my ginger ale and pouting.

I was so determined to go that I actually got up at 4am, dragged myself out of bed, got myself ready, and started driving to the airport in rush hour traffic. Maybe it’s just nerves, I told myself. However, as I started to involuntarily dry heave in my car as I tried not to rear end the person in front of me, I knew I couldn’t go. I took the next exit and went home.

I wanted to cry! I mean, this is Eastman Kodak we’re talking about! Whaaaaa!

And as if that wasn’t bad enough, I was finally going to meet Rockin’ Mama Caryn in person. We work together at Family Review Network and she was scheduled to attend the same session.

Okay, now that I’ve shared my woes with you I think I’ll go back to pouting again. Besides, I think there’s a toilet with my name on it. TMI?

Update: I just received an email from Kodak saying that they would be willing to re-schedule with me for a day when I’m feeling better. Woo hoo! Things are looking up!

    Oh no! I would have tried to go, too! Poor thing! We have the sickies over here, too. It will not end. Over and over and over and over………… So tired of it.

    I am so glad you get to have another day with Kodak, but a bummer you don’t get to meet Caryn. I hope I can meet you ladies one day, too. Like at BlogHer???

    Hey Kailani… That was TMI (LOL!), but that’s okay. Anyway, it sucks to be sick. So, pouting is the best sense of control. I’m cracking up. I hope you feel better AND I’m so happy that you were able to reschedule. I want to be like you when I grow up… you know, that I can have KODAK calling to reschedule something… Hey, I’d be happy with a call. LOL! Get well soon.

    Hi Kailani! I hope you’re feeling better. I missed seeing you! I saw Stephanie from Bizzie Mommy (she’s so sweet). You definitely need to come out and do it because it was so awesome! I’ll email you the deets. Are you feeling better?
