    Jacki & Family 8/7 - 8/24/15

    So it begins....

    My kids' clothes are packed. Some food & toiletries are in bags on the dining room table. That is as far as packing goes at this point. The suitcases are out & about around the house. My Missy (Bichon Frise) is so old & blind she's not in panic mode which is usually what happens when she sees the suitcases come up from the basement.

    Dogs' caregivers are sorted out. Four different people to cover our time away. The bulk of it will be people staying in our home so the dogs will be comfortable and the cat will be cared for and the pool won't be green when we get home.

    My daughter & her boyfriend got into an argument & broke up on Sunday. As it stands right now he is not coming with us (obviously). It's a little late to rent their room! I'm a little annoyed, but should be more caring than cold & thinking of money lol

    This will be the smallest group we've ever traveled to Aruba with, other than our honeymoon!

    2 days, 20 hours, 27 minutes till take off!

    I think pet care is such a big deal. You're fortunate to have someone watch over her at home! I can't relax unless I know our dog will be happy while we're gone. Two days to go so I guess there's time for your daughter and boyfriend to make up. You never know! If not, Aruba will be a good distraction. Happy planning and packing!

    Not surprised you cannot focus at work.... too much good Aruba stuff on the horizon. Always good to have pet care at home... I couldn't imagine boarding our 'kids'.

    Reading about your upcoming trip makes me exciting!

    How wonderful that you have caring people looking after your pets! And the pool! Can I borrow them sometime?

    Sorry about your daughter and her boyfriend breaking up! But there is still time to make up! Aruba will it all make good again!
    Still time for it: 2 days, 20 hours, 27 minutes till take off!

    Just spoke to my daughter a bit. I'm thinking it's over. Better 3 yrs in than 10 yrs in is what I just told her So worried that the trip will be full of gloom from her aura Anyway...

    I'm very blessed to have a few people bending over backwards to make my fur babies comfy.

    Have a wonderful time, Jacki. The first thing I do when I book the flight and before I book our place to stay is to make sure someone stays with my babies. since we paid for my stepdaughter's wedding in Aruba, I told her she owes us about 10 years, lol. She stays at our house for the whole time. but she's a sweetheart, she would do it anyway. though she keeps trying to want to steal one of my babies. lol.
