Just wanted to announce that I have decided to go on the RootsMagic Valentines Cruise in February 2010!!! I am super excited!! I don't even use RootsMagic, but Legacy's cruise always leaves from Europe or South America or somewhere exotic that I can't quite afford to get to. This one leaves from Miami, well within my budget...yay!! It is a 7-day cruise that goes to the Royal Caribbean's private beach in Haiti, then to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and Cozumel, before heading back to Miami. The classes all take place during the two full days at sea and half a day on the day in Haiti. I'm excited because the Genealogy Guys will be speakers, and I absolutely love their show! My mom is probably going with me, but she won't be taking the genealogy classes. My dad may go as well if he can get the vacation time. I figure I need something to look forward to since the wedding is now in limbo.
I'm also excited about going to see my sister in northern California this fall! She just moved into a Victorian home built about 1910, so we're going to see what kind of genealogy we can dig up on the house. She lives about 45 minutes outside of Sacramento. We plan to take day trips to San Francisco (probably a weekend trip), Napa Valley, Sacramento, and to see the Redwoods. Maybe even Lake Tahoe, depending on how long I stay. I'm just waiting for my supervisor to return from medical leave before I go. And for my sister and brother-in-law to get settled in their new house. It will probably be late October.
In the meantime, I'm going to New Orleans with Cade next weekend for a Labor Day getaway. We need a relaxing trip after all the turmoil of calling off the wedding. And we are thinking of taking a weekend trip to Pensacola at the end of September.
Anyhow, just so excited about my trips, I had to share!
