Last year during the kids April vacation from school, we packed up and jetted off to San Diego for the week. It was kind of a spur of the moment trip for us and by spur of the moment I mean the we only booked it about six weeks before we left. I am a planner and for me, that was very last minute. My sister in law, brother in law and adorable nephew live in San Diego, and since we don’t see them as much as we wish we did, we thought we’d go to them for a visit.
We left on a Friday and I surprised the kids, who knew nothing about the trip, by picking them up from school early. Chris & I took them to lunch and told them that we were going to California. They had never been to CA before, so to say they were excited was a total understatement.
I made the decision beforehand not to bring my laptop with me on the trip. We had some major things planned for the week (Disney Land, the San Diego Zoo and Sea World to name a few), not to mention that I wanted to spend as much time with my in-laws as possible, so I figured I wouldn’t have much time to keep up with things on my end – hence my decision to leave my laptop home.
What I did was line up a bunch of guest posts for my blog before I left, so that way things wouldn’t go unattended for an entire week. I got some great posts in and was really excited to share them with my readers. The first two days, the posts went up without a hitch, but on the third day something horrible happened.
