Thanks a Lot, Eyjafjallajökull

Isn't the waiting game the best? Hopefully you can sense my over-the-top exaggerated tone in that question. Today was supposed to be the day for us to venture over to Amsterdam. The weekend for us to see more tulips than our eyeballs could handle. The trip to try some nasty pickled herring and to stroll through the Red Light District. Walk along canal after canal. Eat a "special" muffin if we dared. But, our plans are put on hold for now. Thanks a lot, Eyjafjallajökull.

This is the second volcanic eruption in Iceland in the last month. The volcanic ash cloud has shut down airport after airport throughout Northern Europe. The Amsterdam airport is closed at least until 2pm today. So, we are patiently twiddling our thumbs for the next update from KLM.

Quick moment to vent, please. Don't you love calling a customer service line and getting a message that they are too busy to help you. Or, even better, when you call, it rings a couple times and then just hangs up on you. I guess you are supposed to draw the same conclusion.

Keep your fingers crossed for us. I need me some tulips!
