Does any one else countdown vacations the way we have around here? This year?
Why are we so excited?
1. We have never taken an official spring break type of vacation before.
2. This will be our families 2nd time on a plane together...the first about 3 years ago was a short smooth flight to CO...so hoping this one to FL is the same.

I hope they spend wisely but if its gone in the first day at the first park ... so be it! ;-) (Then I don't have to worry about them losing their "fun money" right? ha!)
I will have plenty of time to clean and worry about the money when we get back! HAHAHA!!
It happens every year. We have no control over it. Sometimes its like clockwork and every 3 months it occurs, sometimes its not and we ca...
When its beautiful outside I feel like moving…walking,running,cleaning, sweeping, vacuuming (out my vehicle) painting, washing windows etc…...
I will be hanging out with this angel. Chilling in my A/C keeping all the animals company .... and having a "toast" ...
That is I am officially 10 days in being 48 and YES, I have to say it is still going great! ha! (I guess the only way it wouldn't be go...
