Sounds like a rough re-entry back to normal life.

just found the most awesome day bag which will do double duty as my camera bag/day bag/personal item for travelling.

on sale for $37.00, so i am so very happy.

a woman at my new work just walked in with it on friday, showing it off to me and i fell in love instantly. lots of pockets/organisers/compartments, and when you put stuff in it, it doesn't get 'fat' and puffy or overloaded, so it's totally ideal.

it's a dark canvas messenger so it goes with everything, and since it's canvas, can be washed if need be

can you tell i'm in love with this bag? lol

with carlo? all the time, every day.

with this bag? omg, yes. it's a new, special kind of love

here's a pic:

the interior has heaps of pockets and it's really quite deep. and considering the price, i'm feeling like i should probably buy a 2nd one so that if (heaven forbid) something happened to the first one, i would have a replacement on hand

We went out to dinner on Friday night to an Italian restaurant that was located in an Italian food warehouse. Very authentic and all waiters Italian etc. On one wall, they had a huge flat screen T.V. showing a travel pictorial of Italy which of course would make anyone want to go to Italy. So that got DD14 harping on about why on earth do I want to go back to WDW when instead we would go to Italy. She's been studying it in history and would love to visit plus apparently is very keen to visit a different continent (on that basis, a trip to Africa would be great too she says).

I said that yes while I would love to take them to Europe and, whilst the airfares to get us there would be similar to what it costs us to get to Orlando, it would cost us 3 times as much to feed our family there and probably 2-3 times as much for accommodation (and my sister has since reminded me that I should have mentioned to DD that she wouldn't be bargain shopping in Europe like she has enjoyed in the U.S.). DD11 is my buddy who is keen to do WDW again and DD7 is sitting on the fence. DH would probably prefer Europe but will go with the flow I expect (he does understand how happy WDW makes me). He prefers not to repeat holidays and, although he and I have been to Europe pre-kids, he would enjoy visiting different places as well as seeing the places we have already been through the children's eyes. I too normally preferred not to repeat holidays (with the exception of Castaway Island ) but, now I have done our WDW etc holiday, I have found a holiday I could do again and again given the chance.

So, either trip is just a dream at the moment but I'm a person that has to have a current travel dream on the go and so now this is giving me a bit of a headache!

I don't expect any replies, just needed to vent

Alicia - I like the look of that bag! Do tell where you got it from..!!

TravelMum - it is a quandary - I like Princess' answer - print more money..!!! If only it really worked!! I can agree with you re doing WDW over and over - as I sit in my Orlando town home just having seen Wishes!! (Well, not mine, as such, but mine for 10 days!!)
