I don't know about anyone else, but to me the most exciting time is the week prior to my vacation!! I actually am happier now than when I am actually there, because of the anticipation. I am floating on air!! And P.S.:TO any other hurricane's that are even THINKING about arriving during my vacation, Go away, or you will have to deal with hurricane Kristi, and you don't want to be near me when I HUFF!!
