Well, after much much time spent on Orbitz, Priceline, Cheapoair, Expedia,Travelocity, I FINALLY got my ticket to Spain. I will leave Thurs. June 12 and fly to London; change planes in Heathrow, fly to Madrid. I ended up booking through Travelocity. On the way home, I will take the train from Cáceres to Madrid, then stay overnight at a small hotel , leave the next day for home. I fly Madrid to Zurich, Zurich to Chicago. I reserved my hotel room and next week I will book my train ticket- you can't reserve more than 62 days prior, for some reason. I will get to Chicago via airport shuttle from Moline, and I booked that yesterday. I am trying not to freak out about making my connections.
In other news, we had a bomb threat at school today. Some dipshit wrote in pencil on the boys' bathroom wall "I'm going to Blow Up this scholl Thurs. 4-18". How seriously do we take that? Hats off to our administration, though. They took it seriously enough without over-reacting. I think some kid thought we'd get to go home early if there was a bomb threat. I did like the email we got asking us to please look around our rooms for any suspicious looking packages. Does any other profession regularly have the Bomb Squad come and have a look-see?
