I am going home. For the first time in over 4 years I am going home, and will see my baby sister marry an awesome guy (though, of course, no guy will ever truly be good enough for my little sister) and this is entirely, and emphatically, only due to you all. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I'm not often moved to soppyness but this warrants it. And, of course, a special thank you to our wonderful Dr. B, the incredible bitch we all aspire to be *grin*.
Thank you everyone.
PS Oh, don't worry all though, there will definitely be pics, as I am expecting the memory stick in my camera to be smoking :)"
And from me: we booked the LA-NZ ticket last night, and when I see Sarah this weekend I'll write her a check for the balance and she'll be able to book a Chicago-LA ticket. I think there's about $190 left, which should be enough judging by the ticket prices I was seeing yesterday. So, once again, thank you to everyone who pitched in. It was great being able to help Sarah out, with all of your assistance--makes me feel decidedly non-bitchy.
For those who asked where I found good deals on tickets--and really, for everyone, because who doesn't want to save money on airline tickets?--the first place I look is always Air Fare Watchdog. I got a round trip ticket from Chicago to Minneapolis for under $100 not too long ago through that site. Highly recommended.
Later today we'll return to your regular cranky blogging.
Update: Some people are still continuing to donate, and Sarah says that she really truly has more than she needs for the plane ticket now. It's really generous of all of you to have helped. Thanks :)
