So the husband and I, otherwise known as Mr. Deals, are going to California in the next month. Last night he mentioned that the week after we return he might need to go back to Los Angeles for work. At that very moment I thought, “wait a second, let’s stay in California longer through the weekend and go home after your meeting!” I always take every opportunity to extend my vacations (they are usually capped depending on Mr. Deals work schedule).
Within a few minutes I realized that I actually had to be home that weekend in between for a friends wedding event, darnit! But, I suggested to my husband that he stay out and visit his friend in San Diego. He pondered on it for about two seconds and stated, “Nah, I’ll fly home with you and then fly back out the next week. This way I will earn more miles… I am trying to get my American Airlines Gold status.”
This was maybe my proudest moment with Mr. Deals! Welcome to the world of points and miles babe!
