Making a life long dream come true...
Posted 11 October 2011 - 10:26 PM
Now many many years later I'm sure she NEVER thought I'd make good on my promise. And I suppose I almost didn't. See her younger sister is dying of cancer and I suddenly realized that my window had almost closed.
And this year is no better than last... money is tight, time is tighter, and the timing never works out with all the other travel I do.
UNTIL this spring... AA.com ran a cruise special for the Med itinerary that she wanted to go on. I could get miles for the airline tickets and the only week in Oct that I could possibly do it was NOW on sale. We found a local hotel to spend extra days in Rome and everything fell into place. It was time to make it happen.
But how could I return from one dive trip the 9th and depart again the 13th to return the 24th late and depart again the 27th for Cozumel then direct to DEMA then onto Roatan?
I couldn't without letting a lot of clients down and dropping a lot of balls. And yet my gut told me NOW WAS THE TIME... do not wait...do not delay...you'll never forgive yourself if you missed the chance to do this.
So I'm asking for forgiveness from all of you...the ones I still need to do this or do that. I will get EVERYTHING DONE...just slower than I would like. And while this trip was planned a few months ago...it was never planned to be this year...but time moves too quickly and tomorrow may never come.
So please bear with me as I work very hard to get things caught up. YES I will try to work on the trip and access the internet as much as I can. I will eventually get everything done... I am just extremely thankful that our members for the most part will probably be forgiving and will bear with until I can do what they need.

Yes it adds stress, yes you'll feel overwhelmed at times, and YES this is the chance of a lifetime to treat the most important woman in your life and a promise paid that was long overdue! Of course you can rely on your loyal elves to keep the Keebler ovens baking in the big tree and otherwise help out where we can on trips, member requests and site maintenance / security. (Um... pay no attention to the smiley behind the curtain being pummeled by his PC.)
Please pass along hugs and best wishes to your Mom!

Found this little nugget on Dr. Jeff Master's blog this morning..
The ECMWF and NOGAPS models continue to predict that a strong tropical disturbance capable of becoming a tropical depression could form in the Western Caribbean early next week. Some of the spin and moisture for this storm could potentially come from an area of disturbed weather in the Eastern Pacific.
Hopefully it will be nothing..but you never know.

Each wreck has a tale to tell about its life and its demise.
If you are observant while diving in dark places listen to the account each has to tell, You cannot come away unaffected.
