Can you believe that it's already Wednesday, and we are leaving tomorrow?!
Luckily yesterday was rather productive. I pretty much got almost everything checked off of my rather LONG to do list.
I even booked a cruise to boot!
I suppose I can be a bit cray cray - I literally just got home from a nice long ski trip. I'm heading out of town again tomorrow on another wonderfully anticipated vacation and I go ahead a book a cruise on one of the short days that are in between.
Do I ever stop thinking/dreaming about travel? No not really!
So, nothing else too darn exciting, which I guess is a good thing for these 2 days - since I really need to focus on prepping for this next trip.
Today we have another equally long to do list, which also includes taking Cosette horseback riding and taking her to go see Dream. Plus I've got no choice but to finish packing, and I've also gotta get my hair DID, nails/toes were DID yesterday.
Since it's ski season, and it's W2GW, I thought that I'd share with you the TOP 5 Best Family Friendly Ski Resorts in the US for both the Eastern states & the Western states according to Skinet.com
In the East - Smugglers’ Notch, Vermont. In the West - Deer Valley, Utah.
In the East - Holiday Valley, New York. In the West - Park City Mountain Resort, Utah (Heading there next month!!!)
In the East - Bromley Mountain, Vermont. In the West - Steamboat, Colorado (I've never been and want to go check it out!)
In the East - Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. In the West - Keystone, Colorado (HEY we were just there!)
In the East - Wachusett Mountain, Massachusetts. In the West - Northstar, California
While you may or may not realize, skiing can get a bit pricey. With resorts like Vail & Beaver Creek charging $165 for a one day lift ticket, Breckenridge at $154 for a one day lift ticket, and Heavenly at $125 for a one day ticket. Things can really start to add up! So another list I thought I'd share with y'all is for the budget friendly.
The TOP 5 Most Affordable Ski Resorts in the USaccording to MSN.com
Jay Peak, Vermont - Lift tickets for adults start at $35 per day.
Saddleback Mountain, Maine - an adult lift ticket costs $49 Sunday through Friday and $59 on Saturday.
Mad River Glen, Vermont - a one-day lift ticket plus $10 lunch voucher starting at $31.
Sundance Mountain Resort, Utah - one-day adult lift tickets at $26 per day.

That's about all for today, I've got a ton more to do, and Cosette has started feeling under the weather. UGH!
I'll see ya tomorrow, before I leave for our trip to Quebec! -T

5 Romantic Views of NYC
Well, I was very excited for my Museum day in Queens, but that plan got derailed as I am home with a sick child. This is the second week of illness here in our house.
Last week, it was Kelsey. Well, she is back in school and I cannot tell you the amount to homework she has had to catch up.
Yesterday, we spent over 4 hours! Can you imagine 4 hours of homework for a 9 year old. The kid was exhausted when we stopped at 8:15.
As far as Gianna goes, she's been doing her best to keep up at home a little here and a little there by getting the daily assignments from her friends.
Well, here on Long Island, it is terribly gray out. It kind of matches my mood today. I hate when the kids are sick and I especially hate when the weather is icky!
I had my daily Starbucks' hot chocolate, which is the best way I know how to start the day, but I will not lie -- when the sun is not shining, it makes my day not all it can be. I just love the sunshine and miss it when it's covered up by clouds.
So, I'll leave you with some happier thoughts...
I have to tell you, for the amount of work these kids get, they should be geniuses. We never had this much work. I think it's plain stupid!
I am starting to feel a bit under the weather myself, but have been drinking tons of water, taking probiotics, and all the other well-known home remedies to ward off catching what my girlies have.
