TGIF VGNO!

Photobucket
Time For A Question - From Ann

I know where I would rather be right now. I would love to be in Calistoga, CA enjoying Sparkling Wine at Mumm. Then (after the appropriate amount of time ;-> )drive along the winding roads with our top down and the tunes guiding us along. 'What's that? Another winery? Let's visit!' Ahhh, dreamy. Where would you rather be?

Gosh, I would settle for anywhere but here right now. I have to meet my ex at the train and drop off my son, so that means...well, let's just say that means aggravation.

I would like to be in a hotel (I'm not picky, doesn't have to be a luxury hotel, Holiday Inn or Best Western will do). A nice indoor pool (not too many little urchins splashing it up). And enough money to dine in a few nice restaurants (ones that doesn't have paper napkins) during our stay. In a place that's a nice scenic drive from home. That's not asking for too much is it?

We were hoping to have such a getaway in about a week to the Wisconsin State Fair, but it doesn't look like our finances can swing it, so we will be missing yet another year of what was always a family tradition.

Of course a cruise would always be nice...

Vacations keep getting put on the back burner for me too! Sucks!!!

At least you can afford VGNO. Right?

I'm sorry you can't swing a trip to the state fair this year - I'm in the same boat. Missing everything that I'd established as family traditions with the kids - which totally sucks, because I worked hard to create the traditions. When I was growing up, my family didn't have any traditions...and I missed that. So I can totally understand your frustration. :( And no - what you mentioned isn't asking too much. Then again, that could be because I'm wanting to do the same things! :) xx
