    2BBS, Where in Wisconsin are you from? My husband and I are from central Wisconsin (Loyal to be exact). We will be going to CSS for our second trip in December. Can't do the February thing since our vacation money comes from my second job at H&R Block during tax season, and that is the busiest part of the season.

    Enjoy your trip, and Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary.

    Default made me think a bit...

    I'm from MN (Duluth) and we border Superior, WI. Your post made me think about tax season. My hubby and I will be going to CSS in February to celebrate our 10 yr. anniversary. I run a tax prep business out of my home. Leaving for 8 days during my busiest time of year really stresses me out. I don't know how I am going to pull it off. I guess I'm trying not to think that far ahead. Most of my clients are great people and will be pretty understanding of the break my hubby and I need. We haven't vacationed since our honeymoon. This will be the first time we've been apart from our two young sons, longer than 48 hours, since their births. AND we'll be missing our oldest one's 8th birthday (which we are having his party before we leave).

    I'm hoping it will all be worth it.

    As a grandmother, I can tell you, it will be worth it. I only wish that my husband and I could have afforded to do it when our children were little. We lived just above poverty, and couldn't hardly afford to go out for a night, let alone on a vacation. So enjoy it. You will find you will probably appreciate the kids more as well as each other.

    As far as the taxes go, Do what you can before you leave, and the rest will be waiting for you when you get home. The work always is. I just can't afford to take the time off, because as an "employee" I would loose money, which is what I need to go home.

    2bbs, I have two sisters in that area. One is in Germantown, the other in Menominee Falls. We were down there the end of July.

    Trust me, you will enjoy your trip. The sun, the sand, the "warmth".

    We went to Rick's in Negril a couple of years ago. It was fun but very crowded. The sunset was beautiful. Food was not bad and the Red Stripe was GREAT. Here's a quick look at what we saw. Have fun!!
