I am linking up with amazing Katie from Teacher to the Core for my high and low of the month.

My high of the month...
This goes along with my 2 Truths and a Lie post here.
I have always wanted to go to Disney.
I have never been.
I knew that one day I would take my two children when they were old enough.
Next year they will be 4 and 6 at the time of a week off in February.
But, it is SO expensive and money is super tight:(
My husband and I are hard workers by nature.
We both paid for entire cost of college on our own (after any scholarships and yep, we are still paying those loans after being graduated for 13 years!).
So, we thought we could just charge the trip to our credit cards.
We don't hoard our money and have the philosophy that we have the rest of our lives to make money but our kids are only going to be with us to go on vacation for a short time!
I really didn't know if we could stay in a one room hotel room for a week with little kids.
We stayed three days in a one room hotel last spring in the Outer Banks and I couldn't wait to get out of there!
To save money, we went to the grocery store and ate some meals in the room.
Here is a picture of my youngest eating pudding in his seat in the hotel in the Outer Banks:
Actually, TODAY we were talking about staying one night in a hotel next week at Splash Lagoon (I am on a 2 week spring break...don't be a hater!).
Charlie looks at me and says, "I want to eat pudding in there!"
It must have made a lasting impression:)
So, what is the HIGH??
My hubby's aunt and uncle said that we could use their timeshare points to stay at a resort!
What?!? Seriously, my hubby and I never seem to get any break like this!
It is a two bedroom unit with a kitchen and everything:)
The Fountains Resort in Orlando. Anyone ever stay there?
Our fee for the week? $250 for the booking of the timeshare!
We are SO excited!!!
I can't stop looking for ideas to plan our vacation coming Feb. 2014:)
This one is a no brainer, unfortunately.
Our beloved pug, Asia is no longer with us.
She was 15 years old.
Here she is with our other dog, Aussie (shih tzu).
I don't have any puppy pictures because that was before we had digital cameras.
She was the most adorable puppy ever!.
She entered our family officially in 2003 when my husband and I bought a house.
First, she was my little sister's puppy while I was in college.
Then, my sister went to college and my hubby and I "adopted" her.
She was the most loving dog and always was great with both our children (they were born in 2007 and 2010). She is a part of our family history.
Knowing that she lived a good life makes it a little better...but not much.
Her last days were sad. She had been deaf for about two years but her mind was great.
Then, her back legs gave out and we started having to carry her everywhere.
She couldn't hold up herself to eat or go potty.
We knew we were prolonging the inevitable.
The last straw was when she just sat in her little bed and was shaking all day.
I am so proud of my hubby for being the one to take her to the vet.
I couldn't do it.
He called me and told me what I knew the vet would say.
There wasn't much they could do and we would be back.
We made the toughest choice to put her down:(
It happened last Saturday and I didn't know if I could blog about it.
I am sitting here now crying like a baby.
Our Christmas card photo before kids was with the dogs!
She could twirl like this over and over...so strong!
Aussie is nine years old and still very healthy.
She spent every waking moment of the last nine years with Asia by her side.
It is not surprising that she is so depressed.
When I came home today, she was howling like I have never heard her howl before:(
I guess that is one way she can show us her grief.
