The best laid plans of mice and men...

T minus 4 days until vacation and my mood has gone from absolutely estatic to desperate and is heading towards defeat. If you hit the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on. Doing that now. Every year something happens and our grand vacation plans get whittled back to yet another 3 hour trip to another place just like this only it will boast a zoo or a bigger lake. I have both heels dug in trying to not let that happen again. We've already cut this trip in half once and I will not do it again. Right now we are looking at having $7 a day per person to eat on. Everyone will learn to love bologna. We will have no money to actually do anything other than sit in the cabin and take in the surroundings. They will learn to appreciate the mountain views.

I said earlier that I was going to the beach come Hell or high water. Now I am simply whispering "Please God, let us have this one trip and deliver us home safely."
