holiday visits

October 12th, 2005 at 01:28 pm

I'm trying to figure out how I can go home for the holidays. Since I started a new job, I have very little vacation time, and can't really use it around the holidays anyway because everyone else has more senority than me. However, I can't bear the thought of missing Christmas with my family. I have plenty of frequent flier miles that I've racked up over the past eight years, and I wanted to use them before NWA goes completely belly-up. Unfortunately, they rachet up the number of miles you need to get a free ticket during the holidays, and I don't have enough. I am left with three choices now: buy a ticket at an inflated price, go the weekend before Christmas and pay slightly less, or not go at all. I'm not too thrilled about any of those choices.

Tonight we're going grocery shopping. If I have any energy later, I should look at cookbooks for meal ideas, but I'm guessing I'll end up on the couch watching tv.

Spent $33 today on a bus pass. Next month I should probably get back into the habit of writing about every penny I spend, because not doing so means I go on a shopping binge!
