Laurie, I am praying that your trip happens for you. We cancelled ours due to unexpected household expense.

OH NO MICHELE!!!!! I'm so sorry!!!!! I hate hearing that!! I tell you, this really has not been a good year for lots of people I know.

I've trimmed our dining down to one TS a day so now our deficit is down to about $2200.....which technically is about what I have budgeted for souvenirs.....so I think we'll have everything else covered. (as long as the IRS sends us a check.........) Then hopefully I'll be able to tuck a little out of Mike's checks away to cover the difference. Not giving up yet!!

Don't give up! We unfortunately need a front door. Ours broke and well I need a new freezer too. I decided that I can wait to go and get what we NEED.

Holy Smoke Batman - oh wait Disney ... My baby girl just said Oh Snap (she's 7). I am glad you haven't canceled your trip yet and pray that everything works out for you. I can not believe how the kids have grown, and remember what those three hours of alone time were like. Enjoy them and continue thinking positively - your family deserves this trip.

Hi Kris!!!! How are you??

LOL......what our kids say sometimes is hilarious. I got an email today from Shy's teacher letting me know she told another kid to "shut up"......oy vay!!

I've refigured everything multiple times....I just don't see where I could whittle away much more. I refuse to give up on this trip.....my son is coming this direction next week....unfortunately it's to Disneyland and not here in Oregon. So I have to get there.....this trip is what has made this year bearable.....it gave us something to look forward to.

Laurie -

Ok first i have to laugh and let you know that if that is the worst Shy does you will be lucky. I always love those emails or phone calls, I get that guilty Mom complex then remember there are kids who do worse things. Verbal is better than physical Lol

I completely understand about your trip being the thing that keeps you going. That is how it has been for me this year after cancelling last year. I feel like I need this trip to reconnect with my family since nursing school keeps me so busy. It is like the last time we will be able to go with all of us since my oldest is "outta here" in July. Her choice not mine

Somehow although you can't see how now; things will work out! Look what happened last year! Don't lose faith, just keep swimming and besides Christmas is the most Magical time of the year

Kris

I'm worried about the physical part....she's learned how to wrestle and play fight and since she doesn't understand, she has gone up to other kids and kicked and hit them.

Nursing school is a lot of work so your trip will be a nice way to spend some much needed time together.

Michelle -

Sorry you had to cancel - these are the times that I wish money did not exist and we had government mandated vacation time of two weeks per year in which we were obligated to take a trip to the destination of our choosing and the government paid someone to watch the house and animals.

Well one can dream right

Kris
