Just booked our flights for June 21-30.
With 193 days to go I’m still wondering — will we use them this time?
Was able to book both legs 100% on points. Booked my whole family on my points for the flight down. For the flight back I booked 3 family members on DD’s points and myself on my own. I have made a calendar reminder for 6/29 to check in for the return flight with a special reminder to log into DD’s account to do so. I was worried about kids getting to sit with adults so I was happy she had enough points to book everyone but me; I can get early boarding as a SW cardholder, provided there are seats available, so if I get a crummy boarding group I’ll just do that.
Word on the street is that I will be able to get the vaccine in the next few weeks as a healthcare worker here in NH. DH might be able to get it it as he works “in healthcare” although he has been working from home since March. DS will not be able to get it, so it seems, as no pediatric vaccine has been developed yet. DD might be able to get it as one of the first ones (?Pfizer?) is approved for use ages 16+; I suppose it will depend if her pediatrician adopts it or not. The vaccine status will factor heavily, I assume, in whether or not my employer lifts any travel restrictions by then.
But for today I’m feeling a little bit hopeful that we will be Home again reasonably soon.
