Cost of fear

I was too scared to buy K a plane ticket on Wednesday, which would have been two weeks before our departure for Alaska. Cause, you know, what if we didn't get the travel order and we spent $1000 for nothing?

Today the ticket cost about $150 more. I just bought it. If K can't go I will pay $50 to get it changed and we will take a babysitter with us. I'm sure one of my YW would do it for a free trip to Alaska.

Fear is expensive, though, huh? Good lesson.

So when *will* you know for sure who will be going with you?

We know for sure Z is going. Woohoo!

The court order for K will probably not come through until a couple of days before we leave. So I really couldn't wait that long! On one of the flights I got the very last seat!

You are right that any YW would be in heaven for that seat, Alaska in a sec!

Prayerfully it will be filled with who is supposed to go.
