But the pain and suffering I have recently endured is just short of annoying. Today has been nothing but issues with getting money out of my bank account.

I hope that everyone is doing well. The flight was uneventful. I actually went to MSP airport this morning to just check my luggage in and then I was going to head over to the mall for a while to pick up a few things and to kill some time but the lady at the check-in desk was all about getting me on the 9:30 am flight to Houston....
