Things looking up?

I want to thank everyone who gave me words of support and encouragment last Friday. It was a rough day and all your comments lifted my spirits. When I got home after work, I went to sleep at 7:30PM and did not wake up until 9:30AM the next morning. I really needed the sleep. I wonder if I wasn't also fighting off a touch of something. I was very pale on Saturday.

I spent most of the day continuing to research vacation options with a switch in focus to Mexico and Cancun. I think I've finally found a great resort, airfare and excursions all for $897 for 5 nights and then I checked the  pricing again this evening (a mere 12 hours later), and the rates have gone up $200 a person. Wha? What is it with airlines, really? I'm pretty miffed. I spent a lot of time on the phone with Gus, the travel agent, called Priceline and spoke to the resort to try and work out details. I thought everything was all good, and then bam. We want more of your money! *sigh* I need to speak to Gus again, but I think we'll just have to deal. I want to swim with dolphins, damnit.
