As Husband put it this morning on facebook:
Hoping that things really do turn around in the next 24 hours but one thing is for sure.....I refuse to pay a small fortune to spend an entire week sitting inside in a confined area in the Florida Keys with a four year old while it rains and pours outside when I can do that for free at home (sorry for the long-winded statement. Phew!)
So, we have until tomorrow morning to un-check the first box and bail out (for a mild fee). Until then, we're hoping that things really do make a turn for the better and this thing becomes even more disorganized (for everyone's sake...not just our sake).
Upside: At least Husband and I have flexible enough jobs that we can reschedule our vacation for anytime so we're looking at something in the middle of July.
So I'll close with this thought: On behalf of all Gulf Coast residents and vacationers - While we love your name (Debbie...who doesn't love a Debbie?) and can certainly appreciate your brute force and weather-iffic powers.... we kindly ask you to leave and dissipate sooner than later (and preferably before tomorrow morning for my own selfish reasons). Please and thank you.
Happy (and hopeful) Friday Y'all!
