I'm Nancy in South Carolina.
I'm not going anywhere this summer.
There are several reasons why we aren't going anywhere this summer: I just started the new job at the emergency vet clinic so I can't take time off so soon. We don't have the money to go anywhere. We prefer to travel in the fall, since it's cooler and the tourist season is usually over by then. Our usual destination has always been Charleston and we live only 15 miles from there now, so we can go there whenever we want to.
Understand on the why not right now,Nice being so close to Charleston too ..I know downtown has really changed over the years big time!Least you are so close like you say now .. easy to go when you want :)
Great to see you here Robyn,Nice things going on & happy to hear it too!Exciting that your birth Mom will be visiting & hope you can see your brother too.Is DH happy about all this now ?
I love hearing stories like your Robyn,So glad everyone is supportive of you.Nice to stay in touch with your birth mom like that.Will be emotional when your real mom meets your birth mom.Keep us posted on all this of course :)

Summer...ah...finally summer! We are headed up to a lake in the desert for a week. We have a hotel room overlooking the lake. First time we've splurged on something like that...camping before kids, RV w/DS1 and now a hotel room w/kitchenette. DH's brother and family are joining us for 3 days so our kids & cousins will get to spend some time together. Unfortunately, MIL just mentioned last night at DS2's bday that we might have a "visitor" for the w/end. Then she said she'd be driving the "visitor" (it's DH's father who we never see). As the conversation went she said, 'maybe just for a day'...uhm...we PURPOSEFULLY did not invite her on the trip bc SIL said she did not want to come if we did! She kept saying that our vacation "wasn't sorted out and planned"...and DH was like, "it's been planned and booked for months." I think she was saying that bc SHE wasn't booked to go.
We actually have the $ to do things this year but not the time. I am volunteering for a 10 day CF charity event so that will take up the bulk of my vacation time. And DH works Suns so we won't have any long w/ends to do things. Unless I take a Thurs off, we'll have no weekends at all...so we'll see. I'm toying w/the idea of saving the money and going on a cruise in Feb or something with the kids. We've never done these kinds of decadent things tho...DH doesn't like to spend money, LOL.
