Why Are Plane Tickets So High?

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!
