The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

We Have Baggage

We had a red eye leaving at 12:45am and got to the airport at 8:30pm, allowing ourselves plenty of time.  A few of our suitcases were over the 50lb limit which would have cost us an extra $200 per bag and a couple were over 70lb which was going to be a lot more. The lady at the “Overweight luggage counter” pointed us to a “Repacking” area equipped with a scale…guess we’re not the first ones to have this issue.

As we redistributed our belongings it became clear that the bags were not going to ever get under 50lbs. I remembered on a flight we once took our luggage broke and they gave us suitcase to use instead.  Must be one that sat in the Lost in Found too long.  Kharron went on a hunt to baggage claim and after a long time came back with a large (free) suitcase.  So our extra cost was only $150 for the extra bag, rather than probably $700 for the extra weight on our existing luggage. Yeah!
