A little nervous

This trip to Mexico has been planned for almost a year. The stars basically have to align to be able to do a kidless vacation. My inlaws are arriving today from Chicago to watch the kiddos while we are gone. The winter has been long cold and wet and one of the only things that has gotten me through it is knowing that soon I'll be in the glorious sun and getting quality time with my husband and also get to enjoy some time with great friends.

Swine Flu.............Don't travel to Mexico unless it's completely necessary..........

What are we supposed to do???? Mexico is a big place and Cabo San Lucas is quite a distance from Mexico City where this is originating from. But still, we don't want to minimize the sitution. 99% of me is screaming out "MY TRAVEL TO MEXICO IS EXTREMELY NECESSARY!" But that last 1% feels really nervous about entering "the danger zone" of swine flu.

I guess it's never easy to leave town. The last time we went to Mexico I didn't get my passport until the day before we left. It was delivered Fed Ex and it had me on pins and needles until I had it in my sweaty palm! This time it's a little different, but still has me a little nervous.

We decided last night we will for sure go if there are no cases reported in Cabo, but if there are......I guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!

I hope you have a wonderful trip - I wouldn't stress over the swine flu - just enjoy yourself - go check out Shannon's trip pics from last week so you can get your vacation-mo-jo on! You deserve to relax and have some kid-free hubby time! "God hasn't given us a spirit of fear!!! (2 Tim. 1:7)...

I just sent you an email then decided to read your blog... I'm so sorry you have to make this decision now - what a pain! Why couldn't your trip have been a month ago!? I'll pray you can go and all will be well!

So are you still planning on going to Mexico? When are you supposed to leave?

Dee said...

Yes, this would be tough. You are in my prayers.

So, did you go to Mexico? If so, you must post pictures! Those of us not able to "vaycay" in Cabo must live viacariously through you!
