Mission Completion! Gold status has been verified in the Alaska Airline app and I got to meet my son AT THE GATE on his holiday travels home. The last time I did that was when the kids were travelling as unaccompanied minors to visit my parents in TN. I have fond memories of childhood waitingContinue reading “December 21 Day 653: Mileage Run Part 3”
Grades are submitted and I have four days to prepare for a family Christmas. It’s a little late to start thinking about the holidays, but I have been preoccupied with other priorities until now.

IContinue reading “December 24 Day 291: Not a Creature was Stirring”

Especially when they are over 2500 miles away? My husband will groan, but I am suggesting gather.town. They haveContinue reading “December 20 Day 287: Holiday Gathering”

After a few essential errands and emails, I did nothing (or practically nothing) for the rest of the day. I snuggled underContinue reading “November 11 Day 248: Full of Thanks”
