So sad (not really a question).

I am just so sad right now! I was hoping to catch a Space A flight to anywhere close to my family. Turns out the terminal at the base we live at almost NEVER has flights anywhere near my family, and then I even tried to see if I could get one to see my ILs, but nope. None to there either! I am so disappointed, I can't afford a commerical airline ticket, so I was really hoping for a military flight (since it is free). I got my hopes up that there would be a flight to one of the 6 bases close to relatives, but no, no luck at all. Let me also add that the only members of my family to even met my 9 month old daughter are my mom and dad. My sister has only seen pictures and videos that I send her. :( A bit depressed right now. I was really wanting to go home some time this summer, or before I hit my 3rd trimester and can no longer fly.

  • Every thing happens for a reason & there is a blessing around every corner. Smile, even though we can't see around corners so to speak, doesn't mean the blessing isn't there.
    Hugs to you & congrats on upcoming baby!

  • I'm sorry you can't go home yet. I know how much that hurts. I'm close enough to where I'm from that I don't have to fly to get there, but far enough that it costs quite a bit in gas money and right now it's just not possible to go. My sister moved across the country a few months ago and I don't know when I'll see her again.

  • Even looking for a few months in advance the cheapest is still about $250! Why can't we just live close by?
