Day Fifty-Six

Several challenges yesterday -- after my grandson's baseball game my ex took us all out to Steak N Shake. I ate only half of my sandwich, but I did eat the fries. Also, remember I said I wanted to avoid the vending machines? Unfortunately, the vending machines came to me. Family members bought stuff and passed it around. I ended up eating some licorice.

Aside from the mild overeating, it was a good day. My grandson pitched, and did well. It was his first day with this particular team. The weather was beautiful and perfect for spectators.

My ex told me that my college class was having a reunion the weekend I was already planning to go up to Michigan. I was not aware, because I did not graduate with my class (one year later) so they never inform me. I got online and I registered! I'm going! It was $30. Now I have to figure out what to wear.

I also talked to my Florida son last night about making a visit down there. He recommended that I come the first week of June. When I started looking at flights, I realized suddenly that I don't have the cash flow to buy a ticket. I'm already in the hole, what with the car repairs. (I do literally have the money, but I don't want to upset my spending plan). I'm thinking about driving, like I did before. It worked out well, moneywise, and I rather enjoyed the experience, even though it was a long time in the car. If I drive, there will be no expense until the time I begin. I might ask my BFF if she wants to go along. She has expressed interest before. All this is speculation!

    I don't recall if you have mentioned the area your son lives in. I know Allegiant Air has added destinations in Florida recently. Right now I can get a round trip ticket for $58 before taxes.

    He lives in Gainesville. The nearest Allegiant hub is Orlando, which really isn't very helpful.

    That's great you're going to be able to go to your class reunion!

    Glad you are going to your class reunion. Hope it is a blast!

    I think if your BFF can join you on your drive, that would be delightful.

    Allegiant is adding flights to Jacksonville, FL. Check on that.

    Hmmm. Good to know, Stephanie.
