The holidays are here again and it seems more stressful than previous years. At least it did. Between gifts and bills, it didn’t look like we would be able to make it to Oahu to spend Christmas with Mary as we said we would. Well, after knuckling down, we were able to find 1 1/2 free round trip tickets through our Hawaiian miles program. Mary offered to pay for Gavin. That only left 1 1/2 tickets to actually buy, which was much more feasible. So we purchased them. We now have our tickets to Oahu, and what do you know? Most of the stress is gone. Amazing. Now I’ve been able to enjoy the lit tree, house decorations, chocolates, Christmas specials, and various other holiday amenities.
