I guess we made a good decision to go to CSS anyway despite my hubbies job loss Nov 1. When I booked they asked if we wanted trip insurance to cover job loss and we opted not thinking if he lost his job we would need a vaca more than ever.
Vickie...I am soo sorry to hear about your July CTI trip... totally sucks! But am soooo glad to hear that Michael has gotten a job! That is wonderful news, and means that you can go in July 2011!! Or sooner if he gets vacation sooner... Heck... if he gets vacation after a year, you might be able to swing a 5 day Christmas in 2010... Keep your chin up and look on the positive side of things. Miss you guys!
Using a 1-10 scale to give these three descriptions their proper weight, this is how I would apply them:
The good: 10 points
The bad: 1 point
The ugly: 1 point
The fact that hub landed a new job in this wretched economy dwarfs any vacation plans or wishes. That's not to sound cruel or dismiss your love for Couples, but without a job, everything else eventually crumbles anyway. So long as employment is not a concern in your household, you'll always have Couples as a future vacation on the long term agenda. Be very glad your situation is on the upswing, many folks can't say likewise.
Reading is fundamental. It's just that for some, it's more mental than fun.
Please don't get me wrong. I am very thankful that he was able to get a job. I just wish he liked it, but it's a job. I am a teacher, so my salary is, well, a teacher's salary in one of the lowest paying states in the nation. My hubby has also spoiled me for the past years. So I will bite the bullet and hang in there and hope all works out.
