Of course the kids would walk in the door now.. Real fast.. I visit the boards daily when planning a trip and when I don't know when the next trip will be, I leave the boards and find other ways to occupy my internet time. It is just too sad to be here daily without any personal hope of my own. Never been so happy to have to leave Facebook (my recent daily site) to come back to the DISboards!!! We are steadfastly paying down our debt and at the same time planning a trip for sometime in April 2010!!! We plan to keep it a secret from the kids, but tell them that we are going to a wedding in Cleveland or something and if we could they wouldn't know that we are going till they see the palm trees as we land! More to come when I get these kids out of my hair!
