March 2010 Update

The house sit in Northern Ireland is a GO! We have purchased our plane tickets, leaving Tucson on 9 June and returning on 16 November. We will fly in/out of Dublin, since it was more economical with better connections. Then we factored in all the frequent flyer miles it will add to our accounts, and there was no other option but American.

I don't understand how airlines do their pricing,though. There doesn't seem to be any logic to it. One day, it was best to go on 10 June through 15 November, then it changed to 9 June - 16 November, then it was totally unaffordable to go at all, then back to 9 June - 16 November, for the lowest price ever. It would be easier if everyone priced like Southwest, where there are low prices for the early buyers, then when those seats gone, they go to the next level of pricing. It would certainly help my stress level when buying tickets!

I did our Monday evening walk in downtown Tucson yesterday for the first time in 5 weeks. Hurt my knee while we were moving. Didn't do a big "OUCH", it just got progressively more painful to walk. By the time we finished hauling everything over, I was a real gimp. While I still move slowly and take lots of Advil, I can at least walk 2 miles in 45 minutes. (I was doing 3.4 in 55 minutes.)

Today we will work in the yard and garage, as well as price having the concrete floors stained and polished. Should be a fun day.
