Come what may, I'm going to Hawaii in June

I might have no money at all, but hey, it's all covered except for food and gasolene, and surely between Andrew and I, we'll be able to manage. We have to eat, even here.

I knew I joined Travelshare for a reason. You have to have gold-standard creds with Worldmark, but wow... Diamond standard, actually. I'm a Diamond-level member, which is above the Gold level. I knew I joined for a reason. It's a few bucks a month on top of your maintenance fees on the condo, but it allows you to swap for some really amazing stuff. I just picked up air fare for two, plus the Maui rental car, for absolutely no cash out of pocket, only credits. I joke that we might be foraging guavas to eat (actually, we did that a lot, when we lived there when I was a kid, just because my mom was frugal housewife), but dammit, we're going. Assuming all the airlines involved are still running by June. And though we have to fly to LAX to do it, we have a direct flight to Maui. Which is fine by me, as I really don't like layovers at the Honolulu airport.

Once there, it's all long-booked through the condo network. Since the middle of last year, actually. And I was hoping to be able to pull a rabbit out of a hat with the airfare, since I've done it before, but this was even better than I'd hoped.

It's amazing how this has lifted my mood overall.
