I was online looking at flight options for a visit to see the family in July.
From Saturday to the following Saturday looked to be a good proposition and would give me plenty of time to tire of everyone.
I checked fares and carriers (sounds very disease-y doesn't it?) and made my decision. From July 1 - July 8, 2006.
Click here, click there, and so on and on.
Review Your Choices, click click click. There's a lot of duplication and confirming required for such a straightforward transaction. Clickety click, barba trick and then I'm done.
I go to email la familigia about my royal visit. While I'm cutting and pasting flight times from the confirmation email, my heart quickens as I notice that somehow I've booked myself going and coming on the same day. But I reviewed everything 5 times didn't I?
Is a 4 hour turnaround long enough to visit my rather cumbersome family? Yes, frankly it is.
But, being generous of nature and to a fault, I realize, it simply wouldn't be enough time for them to spend with me.
Selflessly, I logged back in, changed the flight, confirmed everything 5 times and it looks like I now will be spending nearly 7.5 hours with them.
