You may have heard me say that my hubby has said no Aruba while paying for college tuition for 2 kids (one a junior; one a freshman).
Sooooooo, I found a really, really great deal on airfare to New Orleans ($115 rt) and we had 4 nights comped at Harrahs, since hubby said no Aruba. Well, we were there last week. Crappy weather for 2 days (we were there during the tornado warnings). Nothing ruins a trip for me more than bad weather. New Orleans is someplace we do a lot of walking about, which couldn't do for 2 days.
All I have to say is, I tried. Really, dear, I tried to go elsewhere.
Now I'm saying: I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE THAT CAN'T PROMISE GREAT WEATHER.
WE ALL KNOW WHERE WE CAN BE PROMISED GREAT WEATHER.
I always try to look for options but my heart brings ass back to Aruba. I told my husband if he wants to go somewhere else he's going to have to play a more active role in planning. Because if it's up to me we are going back to Aruba.
