Is it just me or are there too many choices?

Monday I spent loads of hours on the phone to work through health insurance things and try to get the trifecta appointments for the kids. You know, doctor, dentist, optometrist. Hours. And I succeeded in doctors for all three. Dentist for one. And I need to call back for the eye appointment. There are valid reasons why this is so complicated. Well not valid but explainable.

Today I spend at least two hours to figure out the best travel options for a little trip back east in August. I have succeeded in booking the trip there, and have some options for the trip back.

Is it just me or does all this seem to take longer than necessary. After living in Costa Rica for some time, I got used to less choices. I was annoyed to have to search for what I wanted if it was a specific thing. This, this can be overwhelming and frustrating. I am not sure if so many choices are really a good thing. What do you thing?
