The Hubs and I are planning a vacation with the 'rents, the parents I mean, and my sister and her husband too. This is a picture of the group that went together on vacation last year. The couple on the right, my youngest brother and his wife and the adorable little boy between my parents arent making the trip this year as they have added an adorable little girl to their growing family and she is just too small to travel, maybe next year!
We were supposed to be going to this beautiful condo in Gulf Shores, again this year, but with the oil spill, we have become fair weather friends and switched our trip to Amelia Island, Florida, on the Atlantic side.
We feel really bad for the Gulf Shore tourist businesses, but this year we are only going to be able to go on 1 one week vacation, and I didnt want it ruined by the darn oil spill, damn you BP!
I am feeling guilty even taking a vacation this year, because the hubs has been laid off since the end of January, and the new business, see this previous post, has taken up alot of our savings, but I really feel the need to go on this trip to spend time with my parents. Dad has colon cancer for the second time. Don't get me wrong he is sailing thru chemo, but you just never know. So money be damned, maybe we won't be able to pay off our visa card this month for the first time ever, but somethings are worth more than a good credit report! Oh well, it's just money, right??
I also feel guilty leaving home because of our two little fur babies. I know this is silly, but i was actually sick to my stomach worrying about who would take care of them while we are away. Thank God, my bosses son, Dillan, a really great 19 year old kids has agreed to stay at the house and take care of my babies! I am so relieved. Do any of you get worked up about your fur babies? I guess I want to know that I'm not the only crazy lady out there, lol.
Amelia Island is in the upper most part of Florida, does anyone know anything about the area?? Savannah Ga, and St Augustine Ga are a short drive away, and I think we would like to go visit them. My question is has anyone there, and if so what do we want to check out while we are there.
Would love to hear your thoughts as always, I will post again soon, well as soon as i can. Thanks for stopping by!
