    It is a go!!

    So one week from today we will be on our way to Aruba- at last. We have not gone since 2019. This time we are staying at the Holiday Inn for the whole time we are there. Just keeping our fingers crossed that the Rapid PCR tests we signed up for at CVS come through in time( have read some negative stuff on CVS tests on FB). Walgreens does not do the red dot tests in Ma.Then I have to figure out the ED card- I am not computer smart so hopefully I can figure it out on my own( Hubs will be no help because of his patience level.). We have been back and forth on going/not going. The death of a favorite uncle and a good friend made us realize time is short and time to take the leap. So if the stars we will be on our way to Logan 7 days from now!

    Glad you decided to go. Actually the ED process was quite easy.....even for me! You'll do fine!

    if you are nervous about the CVS, try a Walgreens in NH or RI, if the drive there is reasonable.

    there is always the vault test too.


    glad that you are making the trip!!!! Enjoy.

    You’ll be glad you decided to go. In Aruba you will be spending a lot of time outside and will have plenty of room to yourselves. We just came back from our first trip since 2019 (Vegas) and even dined indoors most of the time. I was anxious at first but all was good.

    Sounds like you made a great decision. The ED process is easy as CP indicated. I agree with Andrea - try to find a Walgreens that has the Abbott ID now test. Results emailed within a few hours. Once you have results, then begin ED process. Easier than expected! Have so much fun!

    And don't get stressed on your PCR test, because if all else fails, you just pay $70 when you land for a test. So at least you do have a back up plan. Its alot better than no back up plan.
