It is real

The  trip to Rome is becoming more real to me. 
Still unbelievable but more real.
I still cannot believe I won this....and how perfectly everything about it has fallen into place...
I have spoken in depth now with two people from Susan G. Komen who have been wonderful and arranged the trip for us.
The tickets are booked, leaving May 19th.

The only downside I have found is that we did not get seats beside each other...fine for Jennifer but I'm not a good sleeper and I wouldn't mind keeping her awake but hate to bother a stranger...I just hope the stranger knows something about Rome to tell me all about...

Jennifer has already checked out the movies being shown on the flights... Now I'm not complaining but lets just say that I've seen Shrek several times...

I may take a couple of Benadryl and try to be a sleeper...

We are staying at a small boutique hotel in the heart of Rome.  It's on the 4th floor of an old building and only has 8 rooms.  All the reviews are glowing with the exception of the fact that the beds seem to be very very hard...all the reviews said it's more like staying at a B&B and aparently if you stay out till all hours of the night you have to ring up and wake some man up who will get up from his slumber and let you in wearing his PJ's...  too bad we're such light weights that we will probably not experience this late night issue!
The only downside I found was that there is no pool...I had big plans for spending the 'siesta' hours reading by the pool... oh well...

looks ok to me!
so in less than a month we'll be right there...(that's a map of Rome by the way)

I still can't believe you're going to Rome! That is sooooo exciting!
