Honestly, I've felt guilty that I haven't been out to visit my parents in over a month. My sister was there for quite a long time, and my brothers Mike and Tim also visited in March. So I don't think my parents have been lonely. My work has been pretty hectic with a lot of travel lately and more coming up. But I decided I need to get out there again.
So my wife and I were able to use frequent flyer miles to get out for a long weekend at the end of this week, before Easter. That will mean six coast to coast flights in 2 weeks, but there doesn't seem to be any other way to make it work. I'm in Boston on business this week and then I'm going back Easter weekend to run the Boston marathon on April 17.
Thank God for frequent flyer miles.
