Make t two trips and come home for New Year.

We had a trip planned to Tuscany Nov. 8-15. Then to Germany and Belgium Dec. 20-Jan 3. Ten days ago I hurt my need. Had surgery October 26. Currently right leg in a brace immobilizing the knee. Soon became very apparent we would need to cancel the Nov. trip, throwing a wrench in my plan to renew SE status. In the meantime, an OPM trip to Waterloo came up early Dec. I figured switching the return in Jan. from Jan 3 to Dec. 31, plus booking the Dec. trip one way in P, other in B (they supposedly only pay economy; I'll cover the difference to P; not sure if they'll like the latitude leg), still would get me barely over 100k. Unfortunately my wife will only get to 35k instead of 50k. But eh, we'll stop overnight in Toronto and take our Toronto grandkids (and their parents of course) for dinner.
