glad i could provide a few laughs. i was really strong until today (i guess because i didn't think there was any way i'd be effected with my wedding still a whole month away), but i kinda unraveled today and needed to laugh badly.
Ah, hope you don't think I was being snotty, I've been teaching all day so I was in teacher-Tracy mode. :)

I keep going back and forth. One minute I'm fine the next I want to cry. Oh well, I think tonight I'll turn off the Internets and settle in for some FI time and concentrate on the joy of the marriage part that comes after all of this. :)

Don't unravel! I like my Lisa sweater.

LOL)

Ladies, I watched the news earlier and the Doctor on the news reported that this is a mild strain of the flu and most people who get it are even fine... Med. facilities in Mexico are not as good as the U.S., from what I hear, and Mexico City's population is huge. Also, I did a whole project on how hygiene can become a big problem in Mexico City because of the filthy unerground sewage system... all that said, I really think this will blow over in a week or so... I was talking to a friend last night about it last night and her 20yr old cousing died in a car accident last week and what she said is right, "you need to put things in perspective and be happy for each day. don't let it get to you too much"..... I wish the best for all of us on the forum!

This is so crazy that they are all suspending and cancelling flights til JUNE!!! I could understand a couple weeks but over a month, c'mon!!!! I just read on CNN that Mexico City has closed all venues, they are really trying to nip it in the butt. i really don't think suspending flights will help much! I understand that Mexico is the epicenter, but it spread in Mexico over a week and then has leveled out quite a bit. Its already gone across the US and Canada, i personally don't think suspending flights will do any good. i could see to Mexico city, oh I don't know i'm so frustrated w/ all of this!

Thanks, I appreciate everyones support. This forum is the only thing keeping me going right now. The reason it doesnt look good for May is because there are 26 of us going and no flights have that many free seats. I guess everyone is scrambling and trying to rebook. To make matters worse the company I am travelling with has said absolutely NO REFUNDS, just issuing travel vouchers. If the airline doesnt come up with something I am goingto make it my life mission to ensure no one flies with them again.... so frustrated!

Hey Ladies!

 

My wedding is June 15th in Riviera Maya. Although I am also concerned about the swine flu, we just can not panic.

 

My travel agent just came back from CanCun where she and 25 other agents traveled up and down the coast for business meeting with locals. They stayed in numerous resorts, and they are all healthy and fine.

 

Although there is reason for concern, please keep in mind that the media blows things way out of proportion.

 

If you want to feel a little better read the following links:

I hope that the brides coming back from Mexico will give us some insight on how everything went, and Im sure they are all having beautiful enjoyable vacations while all of us at home are freaking out.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
