I'm home from my week in Tacoma. Saw the sun one day of 7. My body is craving sunshine and now it's cloudy and going to rain in ATL for the next couple days!!

Ft Drum next weekend. That's a short trip - 4 days. I will be at Ft Campbell for 2-1/2 weeks next month. That's going to be a long time away from home.

I'm still trying to figure out when to sneak a WDW trip in (before Sept/Oct) -- I think I am having WDW withdrawals and it doesn't feel good!

Happy weekend!

It is about time you made an appearance on the Boards!!! If "life" would just quit getting in the way, right?!!

You've come a LONG way baby since 2009!!

While I was way out west in Washington, all the Disney commercials were for Disneyland -- I'm only used to seeing the WDW commercials!

The 7-month mark for the Jamborini trip will be here in just a few short weeks! I'm still planning to do the Swolphin Food & Wine Classic AND the Jamborini trip, but Airtran will be "gone" by then (looks like late September is the last of the Airtran flights from ATL ) and right now Southwest is showing many locations from Atlanta -- but NOT Orlando??? (how can that be?!)

I just checked on my airfare for this trip. We book on frequent flyer miles so we need to book early. However on the trip we had to cancel we had to pay a lot of money to get our miles back. Our flights are available, and if we have a problem this year, we'll have four months to use them again before they expire, so I think I'm going to book the airfare today!

Booking airfare is always good! Makes the trip seem so much more real!

I went to rebook them and they were gone! But that was because I was holding them. It all worked out in the end, but I had a very stressful 20-30 mins trying to work it all out!

Glad you got your air transportation all taken care of Alison! That is the one thing that would keep us from WDW this year, I am afraid. Our closest airports are over an hour away and are in DC, Baltimore and Richmond. The fares from all four of the airports has always been high, but now it is even worse. And with gas approaching $4 a gallon, driving is really not much of an option anymore. I looked into the Auto Train (which Bob and I loved back in 1996) but it is astronomical too!

The Airtran/Southwest merger/buy-out/whatever-you-call-it has totally messed up the fares out of ATL. The lowest fare I can find ATL to MCO is $136 ONE WAY -- they're charging Delta fares. I already know for sure I'll be cutting back on the number of WDW trips!!

Laura, those prices are just not fair...

I missed all of you too, it is good to be home, but reality hit when I had to make my own bed this morning and get my own tea.... Ughh, I need to be pampered...

Approaching $4? You don't live in CA!

That's too bad. I know we wouldn't be going as often if we didn't have our miles from the credit cards. Flights for us are $600 each way and that is for coach!

Make the bed? People still do that at home?





















Welcome back to the rest of our worlds! Glad you're back!
