She had an amazing time. She's pretty blue today though. You couldn't pay me to be 16 again. She doesn't love Utah necessarily and being in cool Colorado doesn't help upon returning. Reentry always sucks. I told her Thats how I feel after every vacation and it'll take a few days to acclimate.

Aulani was going to be September 2014 but I decided to book the transatlantic instead which is just as well because mom wouldn't be able to go because she's chosen the Mother's Day cruise on the Fantasy as her 2014 trip with me. So Aulani has been moved to September 2015 because of cheap points, weather, and works well with moms work schedule. That will be at least 10 days if not two weeks. I've never been to Hawaii so want to do all the touristy things.

Can you adopt me? Or maybe your mom can though I think I'm closer to her age than yours. What wonderful plans you have.

Her DBF is giving her grief about vacationing with you? Without him?

10 days at Aulani will be unreal.

Bummer. You'd be ok with them going somewhere alone?

Define alone?


Quote:
That definitely doesn't sound like long enough, especially so long inbetween visits.
I and it might be sooner but as of right now, there's nothing on the books. I hate that!




Quote:
Probably the same oldies, 50s and 60s. I really like the 70s too. I don't enjoy country, hard rock, heavy metal, and rap. Some classical I like but most of it gives me a headache. Blues, I like blues too. And some bluegrass. What am I missing?

I like that stuff too. But I also like some rap specifically the naughty Snoop Dogg variety. The bad stuff.

Love bluegrass too.

I think you're covered.




Quote:
Oh my goodness! No I hadn't heard about that. Years ago I left mine on when I went to the Bahamas and it was a couple hundred dollars. Never again. I make the last call and turn the phone to airplane mode as we leave port.

I would die with a 6k phone bill. I'm going to do exactly what you said; turn it on airplane mode and be done with it. I'm not going to go wifi even if its an option. I can live Internet free for 5 nights.




Quote:
Wow! That's a big undertaking! Very cool you gave your kids the option

Its a lot of work for everyone but very worth it. The FaceTime meeting with our rabbi went very well last night. Joshua is working hard but needs to stop it up some. I need to help him more too.






186 days!!!

Sure, come along! I think you and mom would get along famously.

We both think the he's a bit jealous that we have so much fun together. He has three daughters and the only time he hears from them is if they need something. He's welcome to come with us but doesn't like crowds so won't even try WDW, and he's also closed his mind to cruising. We had him booked on a cruise but he didn't want to go. Oh well, no biggie.

I can't wait to get to Aulani, hopefully it won't have to be changed again.

I actually find it quite freeing to be disconnected from the phone and Internet. Makes me enjoy the cruise even more I think.

He's jealous? That's too bad. How long have they been together? If he's been invited and declined he really has no reason to be upset. Also, mom/child trips are the greatest so he should support that but it seems like he's not a priority in his daughters' lives so I'm sure you and your mom's solid relationship is foreign to him.

You caught me before I edited. I meant to say: define okay. I don't know how I feel about it. She's still my baby but she'll be 17 before next Spring Break.

We have tons of stuff planned and I can hardly keep it straight. Currently we've got:

- Vegas, just M and I in early August
- Miami, M for *work* middle August
- So Cal, maybe to slim, just me and the kids, the week after M gets back from Miami
- Bear Lake, Labor Day Weekend, our family and two others
- Santa Barbara CA, M for *work*, late Sept

- Vegas, Thanksgiving for a soccer tournament, either me and just Joshua or me and all the kids if the girls decide to come with

- Cruise , me and Joshua, January
- Zihua, Feb, me and M



Sorry you asked?

I agree, it won't be any tragedy. Do you do a white board on our door?

Do you know what you're doing in Cozumel? I'm looking at Disney excursions and some look fun. I want Joshua to see real Mexico thought too so I'm torn. I canceled Nachi Cocum; seemed too mellow with no water toys and only 100 people total. Seems more folks with younger kids go. Paradise Beach is also an option. My Spanish is decent and I could surely navigate us around.

Pam, is there anything special we can book at the 6 month mark ?


Still looking for flights. Mine haven't changed. Still wanting SW as we'll maybe have enough points for one free round trip after our trip to Vegas and M's trip to Miami.

I know, I'm crazy excited. I had Joshua start looking at excursions for Cozumel last night. I think we'll play CC by ear as it may be a little chilly. I'd love for him to see Mexico though. Real Mexico. My Spanish is good enough to get us around. He's not interested in ruins or long bus rides. Disney does have some fun looking excursions though that include beach time.

I can't decide. I'm torn between hopping in a cab and finding a beach on our own with lunch or doing an excursion. The local food is amazing and I'd love to find a little place on the sand to enjoy real Mexican food. He loves fish tacos, any seafood. I can bring a frisbee and sand toys and he'd be golden.

I had it all set before mom wasn't coming. Now I'm still trying to figure it out. I'm thinking a beach day. I'd love to go back to Punta Sur but the excursions that go there don't stay very long. Most everybody speaks English, you'll be fine navigating. Some of the excursions to Playa del Carmen look fun but I don't like the hour ferry ride both ways.

We're at a bit of a crossroads with regards to her working. I think a small very part time job wouldn't hurt but M's wanting something more time intensive. The problem is that I want her home to help me. Driving Joshua and cleaning some is work to me. I'm hoping she finds a one day a week little gig.

They've been together a long time. Do they live together?

That's too bad about his kids. I'm sure he's so envious of how close you and your mom are.




Quote:

Colorado to see her camp friends. It's about an 8 hour drive. We'll see. That's a big step for me and she's a young driver without much experience.



Quote:

Sadly no. I'd love to have something in mind but with the kids soccer and dance and Gabby's camp, it's so hard to make summer plans. I sure miss the days when they could miss school and we could travel at off times.





Quote:
I have no idea who NWA are
Goole. They're naughty so if you're offended by horrible graphic language, you won't like them. NWA is compromised of Easy E (deceased), Wren, Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube. Later Snoop and Dre did some things together.





Quote:

Yeah. How did you and your mom communicate?

There are excursions to Playa Del Carmen? An hour ferry? That doesn't sound great. Hmmm.......

In the infamous words of Tom Petty, the waiting is the hast part.

I agree, the prices aren't budging. I think there are fewer flights and they're more full/fuller so they can charge what they want.

Ok I may have missed a little bit of the chatter but here is what I got...
  1. Gabby....job interview.
  2. Gabby...wants to drive to CO to see friends
  3. Pam's mom's DBF is a party pooper and I'm sad he doesn't have a better relationship with his daughters
  4. and somehow a SoCal trip snuck in there!

And here is what I think
  1. Gabby....job interview. If she gets it, it is likely to be part time and as a newbie she'll get nights first anyway...meaning she may well be able to still help. Plus you'll get some great bread at home.
  2. Gabby...wants to drive to CO to see friends. Yeah, no way would I be ok with that at her age to be honest. Here she'd be too young to have others her age in the car and that's too far solo.
  3. Pam's mom's DBF is a party pooper and I'm sad he doesn't have a better relationship with his daughters oh, wait that is what I think
  4. and somehow a SoCal trip snuck in there! why does this not surprise me???

I'm not a whole lot of help on the Cozumel excursions piece. I've been there, stayed there, I do think you could find plenty to do without an excursion, or pick a shorter one to mix it up.

Were plugging along. I'm tenacious if nothing else.

In a nutshell, give or take. Gabby doesn't have an interview yet, just dropping off the application. So Cal for August is iffy but since DH is going to Miami for a week for business and trust me when I say it's not harrowing or stressful, I have a little leverage for a quick drive to So Cal. My friend lives in Seal just a block or so away so we'd stay with her. Disney is not likely as I can't stomach or afford or justify the rices for 4 one day hoppers. They're just outrageous. The kids swear they'll be fine with the beach and I actually believe them. We need some beach time.


Good idea on Cozumel. I really love Mexico. Real Mexico. I love Cabo about 2 blocks inland. I can't stand the port area. It's like shopping in Newport Beach at Fashion Island or some other outdoor shopping venue. Not my thing. Joshua hasn't been to Mexico and I want him to get a feel for the culture. I know that'll be difficult with what, 7 hours, but doable for sure. Safety is key but I'm not reading any traveler warnings for Cozumel any than the same warnings for places like say NYC. Be smart, money away, blah blah blah.


Then I see this on the Disney website:

Speed Boat Beach Escape

On this tour you will:

Meet your guide and take an approximate 20-minute taxi ride to Barracuda Beach, where you will receive a short safety briefing on the operation of your 2-person speed boat. Don your life jacket (mandatory), get behind the wheel and head out through the turquoise seas.
You will drive your boat past sugar white beaches, hidden lagoons and local wildlife during the approximate 60-minute boat adventure.
Return to Barracuda Beach for a Mexican grilled lunch that includes chicken fajitas, quesadillas, nachos with cheese, salsas and fresh fruit. 2 beverages (water or flavored water) are included.
Bask in the sun, swim in the ocean, explore the beach, join in a friendly game of volleyball or just relax under your beach umbrella during your approximate 90 minutes of beach time.
Return to the pier with an approximate 20-minute taxi ride.



How fun does that look? Here's the link:

The only bummer is the food. We could eat a lot better and authentic in town for sure.




6 months or 183 days!!!



Looks like 6 months isn't always 180 days on the nose.
