After three months of checking airfares, getting baited and switched by every airline discounter, and banging my head against the wall - I GOT TICKETS TO CAMBODIA! Just now! This morning!
Woohoo! Yippee! Hip Hip Hooray!!!!!!!
Wait. Who in their right mind WANTS to go to a third world country during monsoon season, when it is raining 10 inches a month and 98 degrees?
I asked several reservationists that when they told me flights were sold out. They wryly explained that it wasn't people GOING to Cambodia who had filled the flights, it was the people escaping who had filled the flights.
So, WHY do I want to go there in mid-July?
To retrieve a precious package -
Sorry, the rest of my week is meaningless. Suddenly I don't care about how exhausted I am from cooking and serving lunch to 300. I don't care about the hamburger encrusted roaster, or all of the bowls and coolers that need to be put away. I don't care if we're supposed to get 6-12" of snow. I don't care if the prompts for the CSAPS were all political. None of that is important right now.
Sorry Friday Fragmenters. I got ONE thing. One Fragment! It's all that matters!
3 round trip tickets to Cambodia and ONE one-way ticket to bring my 6 foot, 160 pound, 21 one year old BABY home!
Have a great weekend!
I'm off to reserve hotels!
