Day 191 - Speaking to someone LIVE

We're a little late making vacation plans. To be quite honest, we weren't sure that we were going on a vacation this year. But taking another look at the checkbook, at the savings account, we've decided to splurge on a long 5 day weekend. Good friends of ours are going to share the expenses and we've been hunting and hunting on the internet for a condo on the beach that would take us for 4 nights. Frustrated and ready to give up, I decided to call a company that specializes in beach rentals rather than fill out more forms and send more owners emails. It was so good to speak to someone. Tell them exactly what we needed and see what they could do. And within minutes the voice at the other end of the line had the perfect condo. It wasn't right on the beach, but a 5 minute walk. We can handle that. Lots of space. We can eat in if we want to. Visit with each other after the kids are in bed. It sounds perfect. And having a voice to confirm our reservation? Joy!
