I have been counting the days, waiting for my count-down clock to pass the 200 day mark, and today it did it! 199 days to Carnival Spirit Panama Canal cruise 4/4/02! It was 351 days when we started, so we're very excited. But all the excitiement of reaching this "milestone" has fizzled in light of this week's events. However, we are still looking forward to the trip, and 199 days gives us much time to heal somewhat. If the world situation doesn't make it impossible or inadvisable, we'll be on that ship next April!!
Anne, read your letter this morning re: travel plans and appreciate you writing this very much! I couldn't agree with you more about the importance of "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness". If we cower to the cowards that are hiding in their holes after committing these horrific acts of war, then we do loose. As an American and proud of it, I vote NO to letting them dictate what we do or where we go. Just look on your currency where it states "IN GOD WE TRUST" and keep the faith and pray. Enjoy your vacation. Many blessings in your travel.
465 days til my big 10 day trip, but so much will have happened. Things I do not want to rush, like my 10th anniversary, graduation from college (second time), car being paid off. These are big, (well not in light of Tuesday, but big nonetheless).
