Mom loves being called “mommy” when I’m being playful with her. When I call her, I always say “Hi Mom” but I always end our calls with the words “I love you, Mommy!”
I went on southwest.com to book a flight for next weekend…you could have blown me over with a feather when I saw that it would cost me close to $400 for an hour and twenty minute flight! Say, what??? Heck, I can fly to Dallas, TX and back for that kind of money.
If it had been a true family emergency, I would have paid the money and not thought twice about it.
Mom has been moved to an assisted living facilty and although she is fine, physically, and I can talk to her over the phone. I want to see her.
So, I’ll fly up to Sacramento the weekend after next…for half the price! Plus, I can get some Northern Calif coupon inserts…LOL. I wonder what kind of inserts come in the San Francisco Chronicle? You can get Bay Area papers in Sacramento.
I’ll be taking my mini-notebook with me so I will be posting the weekend that I am back home. My mom was a SAHM (stay at home mom) when I was growing up and dad brought home the bacon.
Mom would be very proud of me that I did not pay the higher price for the plane tickets and that I held off and found a better fare!
