Please don't apologize for how your feeling, you've had a rough go of it lately. I sure hope the cyber hugs your getting from everyone are helping a bit and the idea that we're thinking of you makes you feel a bit better.

Thank you everyone for the positive vibes of strength and healing.


I'm working on an update....trying to keep my mind occupied. I had it almost finished and let the computer die. Oy.

I'm very grateful for the time we've had with Riley. He's been a total joy. I'm going to miss him so much. Joshua and I slept with him all curled up last night. The ground is frozen solid so we're going to cremate, not ideal, and then bury his ashes. There's no way DH could dig a hole.
Sorry for your sadness. Some things in life are not easy...
just remember the joy Riley brought to you and your family.
Sorry about your cousin's funeral also.

Take care.

I am so very sorry! It is so very hard to lose an animal. Something about their innocence makes it so very hard to say goodbye.

Bittersweet day for sure.
Well, that is one awesome gift, so happy planning!

Thank you. We're remembering Riley will hearts full of love. I miss him terribly but the warm memories help a little. Joshua asked why do we get pets if they are just going to die in 10-15 years. I replied, because we love, that's what we do. The joy far outweighs the pain. He's really trying to make ese of this in his 11 y/o brain.

I agree. They want nothing but love and food and some play time. They are truly a gift.

I just wanted to stop in and say I am so sorry for your loss.


P.S. I am behind on reading trip reports but I did note that you are planning a cruise with you DS! How totally awesome for the both of you!! What a very special trip that will be!

Thank you. The healing words mean a lot.



Were super excited even though its over 11 months away. But we love to plan. There's so much to learn.

She is an amazing trip planner, I agree. One of my best friends went to Australia for a few weeks two NYE ago. Said it was one of the coolest places she's ever been. I'll ask where specifically she enjoyed. I know they went to Sydney and the rain forest.



Wow, Switzerland! When did you go? Was it to ski? I bet its equally as gorgeous in the summer. I check airfare too for numerous places, ya know....just in case.




Its at a total stand still. We were set on Budva, Montenegro however we can't seem to agree on when. I want summer, less stress for us to leave the kids. He wants Sept as it's less expensive. Summer is pretty outrageous. I also said I'd be great with just about anywhere but he's being the picky one. With DS's bar mitzvah in October (which I planned for) and trip in December/January (which I didn't even think about), money may also be an issue. Lack of money stops me from doing all of the cool things I plan. Of course I'm still getting my daily Kayak alerts.
Disneyland -- For right now, I have reservations for Hojo's. The kids love the warer park there. However, it isn't set in stone....

My spreadsheet is for our whole Calif trip not just DL. It really helps us to plan out our days.

Flights are not expensive. Usually around $200 per person. Sometimes half of that! We like the Long Beach airport the best but Orange County is good too!

AZ -- "Piping hot" is an excellent description of AZ in August! I LOVE piping hot!!! Last August, I stayed at The Boulders in Carefree and it was wonderful!! I think my kids would get a real kick out of the desert landscape and wildlife! However, not sure if we will go or not....

Yes, I have been to Hawaii and that is probably my favorite place on earth!

Switzerland -- We didn't ski when we were in Switzerland. However, we saw a ton of kids going skiing/snowboarding and the trains even had little corrals inside to hold ski equipment. So, so cool!

I suppose the good news is that it does give my points a year to recover
It's true, you have an amazing gift for trip planning!

How cool they could go to Ireland!
