    What do I do now?!?

    Hi ladies. Well, I continue to wait and have now been told that they are trying to go thru the military to get more information. How this will help I am not sure. My wonderful hubby and I have discussed it and we will do what msglave has suggested (great idea, thank-you). Niagara falls here we come!!! It will either be to "renew" our vows or celebrate our one year anniversary!!!! So I may very well be back on here on a regular basis to plan our "elopement"!!!!! Sometimes I wish life were slightly less interesting!!!! Boring can be very good!

    Starfish Passing Thread

    Hi Ladies, Thank-you all but as disappointed as I am I am sure the girls on the list are that much more disappointed. I really do hope he turns up and continues to felt passed on. I know things can be as crazy before as they are after with the weddings and AHR. So hopefully he will turn up and sooner rather than later. We can only hope. I have tried to send emails and to pm her all to no avail but sometimes there are unexpected circumstances and I just hope that this is one of them. I also hope the other girls on the list will be able to find spaces on a list or that my guy will eventually turn up. itsfinallyhere's Blue Starfish 1. JenB – Paradisus Palm – June 4-12, 2010 2.

    What do I do now?!?

    Ladies I thought I would give you an update. Unfortunately I have gotten no where and I am still waiting. I did call the everyone and anyone I could think of even the Cuban embassy here, but to no avail. All I am able to do it wait. I find this very difficult to deal with. I have been dealing with depression for that last two and a half years and this is definitely not helping. Somedays are easier and others well. Thank God that they eventually do end. I am hoping that it is found and delivered before our 1st anniversary! I am at a loss. I am sorry ladies I wish I had better news.

    Ladies it is with deep regret that I have to inform you that my little blue starfish seems to have gone MIA. The last person to have had him is JenB. Both Janelley 100 and I have tried to reach her and request that the starfish be forwarded. However neither of us was able to reach her. DestCabo10 you can continue to try to reach her. But as of right now I have no idea what has happened to him. I am sorry ladies I had hoped to get my little book filled with wonderful stories, for me to read upon it;s return. It is a shame that the travels of my little guy has been cut short. Hopefully he will magically be found and returned to circulation. If possible I wold love to have him returned to me. I hope that you will be able to get on another thread. itsfinallyhere's Blue Starfish 1. JenB – Paradisus Palm – June 4-12, 2010 2. Chelle (Janelley 100) - Moon Palace - July 13 – 20, 2010 3.

    To bustle or not to bustle?

    It does not cost a lot and should not take long. A good seamstress should be able to do something like while you wait. 10 minutes max.

    What do I do now?!?

    Thank-you Rachel, I will definitely be calling all numbers first thing Monday morning. Any thank-you to everybody else. Having you to tell my troubles to really has helped. Thanks again ladies, you are all amazing.

    What do I do now?!?

    Hey ladies, I am unsure of how to start. This has been very frustrating for me. I had planned my wedding last year. It was suppose to be on November 16th. I have since received nothing in way of any documentation. I have nothing to show that I have gotten married. I have contacted the wedding co-ordinator on many occasions, and all she has said is to be patience. That mine has gotten lost but that they are looking for it. She has also suggested that I contact someone here that may help me. But who do I contact here in Ontario? Since this last suggestions she is not responding to my emails. I am at a loss. I feel miserable, like my wedding was a complete joke as I have no way of showing that it was or is legal. I am basically no better off now than I was then. I am angry because it looks like I have to spend more money to do this again. And of course I will have to do it on the sly because i am embarrassed to tell people what happened. I have even sent an email to the notary's office (that performed the ceremony) with no response. What should I do? I have tried to contact the resort head office with no luck either. What would you do? I cannot seem to get over this.

    Want to go back

    yes, yes, yes. I was unable to even go on the forum because I missed so much. And time flew by while we were there. It did not feel like there was enough time to relax. I hated being home again.

He was unfortunately delivered too late for NJHunnie too use (I am sorry about that). Hopefully he will get to Crystal in time and get to continue his journey.

We were unable to reach the next Dee in line (mrsgtobe). So I thought it would end up with NJHunnie. However since this bit of confusion I have not been able to reach mwcfarms. If anyone is able to reach her I love to continue to have the starfish passed on. I would hate to disappoint any of the other girls on the list. I am sure somehow he will turn up. I would just like to avoid further disappointment. Thank-you
