    You Know When Your Trip To Aruba Is Near When

    I don't know about anybody else but when my trip is getting near, I smile more, I deal with the stress at work (who cares I'm leaving 2 or 3 weeks to Aruba) I get anxious (can't wait to go) and I start making my Restaurant list and maybe some reservations..

    Right after my friend returns home from his Aruba trip, our trip is always 2 week after. Yes, the last month is very exciting and forget about the last day of work, cannot even concentrate

    When You:
    1. Re-read all of your old issues of "Island Temptations" magazine.
    2. Binge watch endless Aruba videos on Youtube.
    3. You set aside all your favorite Aruba souvenir t-shirts, caps etc to not be worn till you get to Aruba.
    4. Make a list of places to go and things to do, then re-write it a few more times.
    5. Read through the aruba.com forum to get more hyped and for additional recommendations.
    6. You look at videos on Dan Putowski's web page (The Bent Page) on how to find certain places of interest while on Aruba.
    7. Re-read all of Dan's Aruba novels( An Island Away, Under A Blue Flag, and Dark Currents) before you leave.
    8. Do a Happy Dance when you receive your flight itinerary, and Check it over several times in case you missed anything.

    When you start checking the forum three or more times a day instead of once or twice a day.

    When all my bills are paid, for the month, not easy.

    Pay my two daughters, insurance, cell and couple others, still living home.

    Pay my son's bills in California, struggling actor.

    Keep in mind, on the island every 8-10 weeks, which equates paying my vacation before
    we take our first one..lol

    It's a never ending cycle, but, boy oh boy, love it!!
