Thanksgiving nightmare

Today I was supposed to travel to Atlanta to visit my sister, my brother in law, nephew, and my lovely girl, and guess what??? I missed the flight. Now I have to be on stand by for the next one that leaves 8 hours later of my initial flight. I am so stressed with this that I decided to write about it. This vacation to me represents a lot of really important things in my life. I will have to set my mind in order to start the feature, finish my school work, and give a step forward towards my relationship with my girl.
I think that I am expecting so much from this trip that I forgot to focus on simple tasks like be on time. This morning I woke up late and instead of getting myself ready, I looked over the internet to find good deals on cameras that I wont buy for now. I mean I was checking if the HPX500, that uses interchangeable lenses with a bayonet mount, works fine with a prime cannon lenses with the same mount. I was doing all of this with no reason because I wont buy an HPX specially because they start at a list price of 10 thousand dollars. The lenses goes for at least 2 thousand dollars more. That is actually a very neat subject, but what the hell was I doing if I had to take a flight in 3 hours from that time.
I left my house one hour and a half before the flight. The train was departing when I hit the station and that made me lost 15 more minutes. I got to the station where I was supposed to get into another train and I decided to get a cab that cost me 40 bucks. I went to the Airtran counter and there was nobody there, I tried to pass the security with my bags and they did not allowed me to. I tried another way and finally I passed the security. My flight was for 12:55 and I got at the gate at 12:54. The attendant told me that the plane had already gone. I was actually not devastated because you reap what you sow.
Now I am back home and I still have a plane to catch but this time I wont be late.
