I swear we've only posted more since moving to this new thread lol.
So sorry for your loss. I am glad that you feel she went in her own terms in her own home. That is such a wonderful gift.
I’m so sorry for your loss
That's the reason I picked this one. I feel like I am a fairly low maintenance woman but when I travel I turn into a mega princess. I have in the past used a small suitcase to carry my "stuff". I am making a concerted effort to pare this down but SW generous baggage allowance makes it too easy to get carried away!
Our honeymoon destination. Lol
Catching up from today.
Costco - love the rental cars. I have used them many times, especially for the free second driver. I do compare between CSR and costco with 2nd driver. Costco usually wins. I did rent for my Colorado Springs trip through CSR. The 1.5 factor + going with DS who is 21 and won't qualify for free 2nd driver won over Costco.
Packing cubes - I just started using packing cubes. I did roll my clothes that I packed in the cubes. I found I could get more in my carryon with the packing cubes. I also love the organization - easy to find things that are packed together.
So sorry for your loss. Never easy to lose your Mom no matter the age, but what a blessing to have a full life and now reunited with your Dad.
I’m so sorry. Hugs and prayers your way
Dh denied for citi AA match for the THIRD time
I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad your Mom was able to live on her own and had a long, healthy life. I hope that is a small comfort to you.
Why is everybody dying? So sad.
I'm so, so sad about Notre Dame. It's almost 1,000 years old, so it's not like it can just be restored/replaced. I'm thankful my family got to see it one last time a few years ago.
As for packing cubes, I've been a member since something like 2010?
I have a packing envelope (Eagle Creek) that I love, and a cube the same size. The envelope comes with a plastic thing that lets me fold things perfectly, so I use it for both the folder and the cubes. DH and DD have the same envelope and we all think it's the best thing. I pretty much fold everything. I think DD rolls stuff that isn't going into her envelope.
Now I get it. Yeah, the carry-on club takes a lot of work when it comes to packing and folding.
It's super popular, but 2 moms of milennials have told me that their kids bought Away luggage and it's not lasting. At all (as in less than a year). One is a Tumi Mom and one is a Briggs (I have Briggs & Reilly too) and both said that, while more expensive at first, their luggage is lasting years and the Away stuff isn't. Too small a sample size to be definitive, but I thought I'd share. Briggs has repaired my DD's carry-on for free when the wheels stopped working, so I do like that.
We do the same with the hotels - it makes it so much easier, especially since we rarely stay in one place for long.
@CyndiLouWho I just realized our vacation counters are marking the exact same date for our trips
That's exactly what I needed! Thank You!
So, I will leave it on bank account auto draft, then try to remember to pay a little early every month with my 3% Barclay Uber Visa (as long as comes through as Travel), or maybe with Disney GCs from Sam's (using a 2% rewards card).
I'm VERY new at this, so I will try to learn better moves by watching and learning here.
The freedom of a new thread to me felt like this. Suspect I wasn’t the only one...
Wait...you and @Lain are married?? LOL!
Sorry for your loss and it's wonderful that you were able to get your son into town on points!
But so nice to have your Mom until she was 91. What a wonderful age to get to!
Maybe they just added a bunch of new go-getters to the chat team who don’t realize they’re putting themselves out of a job considering how often we request matches?
