And no Erin, this is NOT a hint. :) I think I've pretty much answered my own questions anyway - so no worries. :) Although I reserve the right to come up with new ones and bug you some more later. okay?
I booked us on the May 6 - 13 Land & Sea vacation and I am so excited. Honestly, I've been thinking and planning for this vacation almost obsessively for about a month already! I don't know how I'm going to make it all the way til May of 2007! We are going to be staying 4 (maybe 5) nights at the Polynesian and then taking a 3 night cruise on the Disney Wonder. We have never been on more than a weekend camping trip or hotel stay for a vacation, so this is really going to be our trip of a lifetime.
We just paid off in full the Home Equity Line of Credit that we ran up while I was a SAHM and DH had a crumby paying job. Since we were paying a lot towards that every month, we are just now going to funnel that "extra" money toward paying for the vacation and it should be paid well before we leave. We are just so excited that we are finally in a position financially to do something like this. :) Alex is beyond excited, and of course Katie is clueless, but I'm sure she'll have a good time. Just getting on a plane is going to be a big deal to them. :)
Anyway, I'm probably boring you all to death - I just need to get one of those tickers to count down to it and shut about it already! (ha!)
Stitching has been going well, I'm caught up on all my RRs and even ahead a bit as Autumn sent me Jo's book RR early and I've been working on that. I also stitched in some pretty motifs on my Hardanger Table runner. Still need to do my Sweetheart Tree RR layout, but it doesn't begin until October, so I have some time yet.
Work is actually going pretty well too. I'm on an assignment, which is always a good thing, and the client seems happy with my work and my boss at my firm is obviously happy that I'm making the client happy. So all is right with the world - for now!
IN WHICH WE HAVE A VERY HAPPY SURPRISE, INDEED.
