I took vacation time when my daughter has spring break from college; however, my son doesn't have off from high school at the same time.  My husband is going to be starting a new medication that just received FDA approval in January so we are just waiting for it to become available so he doesn't feel comfortable going on vacation.  Needless to say, he is still trying to get his pain under control.  So it looks like it will just be a mother - daughter vacation trip.  Neither of us have  been on vacation for quite some time so it is needed.  I have never had a passport so I decided it was time and thought that maybe we could find some last minute deal.  After I got done paying the fees, that is exactly what we will need to find, a DEAL.  WHOA - I couldn't believe the cost!  I gave my daughter some money to go to the Post Office where she goes to college unfortunately it was not enough so I had to send out an additional check.  Now let's just hope we get it in time and all works out.  I will need some ideas of good places to go with a 19 year old.  That is why my sentiments of my card are "Happy thoughts".
