The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good...
We are literally right around the corner from the holidays. This is by far the best time of the year. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love decorating and baking and wrapping presents. Most of all I love getting to see my mom. I can't wait to see her and watch her open gifts from Santa.
Christmas 2013
Speaking of mom's Beezy's mom sold her house and she's camping out in our spare bedroom! We've got a permanent house guest.

The Bad...
Remember the fire that happened at my house last week?
 Yes it was bad. There use to be a wooden privacy fence there.

Well SMUD had the nerve to tell me it was caused by a Mylar balloon getting caught in the line. Um... excuse you? The incident report that was prepared by the experts says you had an explosion at the poll that caused live wires to be on the ground. Liar liar... now your pants are on fire.

The Ugly...
The prices of flights! Have you booked a flight near the holidays lately? Well guess what, the airlines are just waiting to gouge you with the prices. Last year I went to West Virginia for Thanksgiving. We booked the ticket very last minute. When I say last minute I mean within 14 days of the holiday. It's still weeks away and the price right now is 400.00 more than what we paid last year 2 weeks before. It's INSANE! If I had the time, I would slow boat it or train ride it because seriously it's insane the prices they want to charge people to go see loved ones.

Oh Smud...:( Fight them, girl, fight them all. hahaha. And yes, prices are ridiculous. They may go down, they may even rise. It is just not fair...good luck finding one. I usually go directly to the airlines and book through them. I found this oftentimes much cheaper than going through third parties. :(
