Awesome start Jen!! I know you had a bumpy start and I know you were so excited. I have the same issue you do - can't sleep before a trip and just get myself so anxious and excited!

Can't wait for more...

At the Toledo airport? You know better than that.

I'm lovin' your report, Jen! We stayed at the Residence Inn, too, back in November. I'm anxious to see what you thought about it.

(P.S. Love your Dad's FSI hat!)

Anyway, keep the updates coming!

And thats just the start. I know trips have mishaps, but I think the cards were stacked against me at times.

I hope to get to the Residence update soon. I'm working on dining report again now.
My mom is the Human Resource Director for FSI. She has some long title with vice president or something liek that in it. Basically she's high up. Her office used to be in Archbold at the plant, but now they moved the offices (a few years back) to Holland. Sometimes she has to go back and forth a few times each day though. My dad said that hat was too hot, so they bought a new one in Sea World. Claire kept telling dad if he was good at Sea World she would let him buy another souvenir there , with his own money.

I found you Jen! Actually, I followed the link from your PTR. I'm never over here on the cruise line boards!

Can't wait to see how your trip went, I'm already loving all the cute pics! Now, what you need to do is have Skip read your TR so he can see how much it will be when HE goes. Then he'll be ready to book a trip (or cruise!)

What happened to your TR. Did you just close it? I noticed it said the pagfe was no longer there.
I doubt Skip will ever read it, but shpwing him pictures are always good too!

Yah, there was nothing I could do at that point. I think it would've cost me $50 to cancel it with them, so I just went forward. I wasn't too keen on the mechnical problems either.

I know now just to stick with Hertz. SIL can hook us up pretty well. I thought that this was such a deal, but it wasn't. Yes, I do have a few bird pictures, but I don't think they will be till later in the report!

Great start, Jen!

I knew about the mishaps from your dining review, but reading it all in all that detail really made me realize how looooooooong that day had been for you!

Can't wait for more, especially since I am finally officially on Easter break and now have time to catch up and stay on top of all my subscribed threads and my own threads!
