All those wedding trips finally paid off

Sigh, I never get tired of looking at this picture. They are so gosh darn cute.

Anyway, so, all that flying back and forth I did this year--mostly for weddings--paid me a little dividend. I was agonizing over whether to fork over the $270 bucks just to go home the weekend after Christmas because holidays just aren't the same without family. Sorry, but there's a big part of me that is sick of forking over couple hundred bucks so many times this year. I've even been looking on Craigslist for odd jobs I might be qualified for just to have some extra spending money. Well, I almost dismissed an e-mail from Southwest yesterday as just a solicitation. I read it closer today and I saw that I purchased enough trips this year for two free one-way trips!!! So, now I can go home for the weekend feeling a lot less guilty because all I had to do was pay the $5 security taxes. It will be a really short visit, unfortunately. But I suppose it's better than nothing. Christmas has come a lot earlier this year. So, to all a goodnight!
