    I am also enjoying the updates!!! I know how stressful it can be to be stranded in paradise but the best option is to stop and take a breath your going to get home eventually.
    Looking forward to trip #3

    my mom is in her seventies....not really sure...she has lied a very looooong time..lol my aunt is 92!!! lol

    they are two of 8 children....i have a very big family....lol

    being a fly in their room would probably make you batty!! mom is headstrong and impatient and aunt is mostly deaf....she only hears every 4th or 5th word you say! but she pretends like she heard it all...lol so there is a lot of yelling going on i'm sure!!! lol
    i will be calling later after they change resorts....hopefully all goes well.....the adventure continues.....

    something else my aunt said to me yesterday...she thought they could just get on a jet blue flight instead....she heard they were cheap and fly everywhere....she thought they could get back to the u.s. through them....so i said no, you reallly cant do that, your tickets are thru continental. but she thought she could just fly home with someone else and fly into miami or something....so i told her you might be able to do that but you would still be stranded in miami...newark airport is still closed!!! even if you are flying in from somewhere other than aruba!!!lolololol she just said "oh."
    lol......................

    they will hook up with some wealthy handsome gentleman, will call you and say "sayonnara".........we are staying and marrying these wealthy handsome men from wonderful aruba.

    or
    they will have a blast, come home exhilirated and are so grateful they send you and your hubby to aruba as a gift.
    Or
    they have such a great time they ask you to do it all over again

    as far as andrea's prediction----mark is working on it i think...they called again and i got to talk to mark and my mom....she sounded absolutely giddy! they had gone to the wine tasting----giddy=tipsy...lol she sounded good and like she was having a blast! then mark mentions to me he has some young venezuelans(i think) at his house and he is trying to convince mom and aunt to take them home with them.....lol

    thank you again mark----you are a good person. hopefully we get to meet this summer! i owe you!
    and thanks also to bully----you have been amazing as always!!!!
