I'll be headed out to the airport around one tomorrow afternoon. My flight doesn't leave until seven, but I have three suitcases to check, which means I'll have to not only check in, but actually pay fees. The cost of checking one extra suitcase with both Air France and Delta is about what it would cost me to ship all of the stuff home. But instead of taking a month or so to get there, I'm banking on having it a couple of days after I get home.
Look at me being all optimistic--I'm working on the assumption that at some point all or part of my luggage will get lost. I'm just bracing myself so that I don't crumble in the middle of JFK or the Salt Lake airport when I don't see my suitcases.
Air France lost one of my bags when I arrived in Paris, and they lost ALL of Amy's luggage when she arrived. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it was just a fluke.
It's also going to take me forever to get my suitcases to the ground floor of my apartment--the elevator broke this week.
(Everyone just keep your fingers crossed for me--maybe the elevator will be fixed by tomorrow).
