After two weeks of back and forth, I've settled the details of my trip to see my parents. Frustrated by the timing of direct flights that require travel to and from LaGuardia in NYC rush hours, I am taking the non-stop flights both directions. Hey, I can knit on the plane, right? I have a feeling the trip won't be quite the peaceful retreat I would like, but I've never quite viewed trips back to the family homestead as vacations. Why should that change now? At least I don't have to pay for the flight, I'm using some banked miles.
