OK, enough panic... One of my nephews is getting married the end of March and we are all trying to work out travel and hotel plans for the wedding. He is getting married in Champaign, IL, about 6 hours from here. My brother, the world traveler and proud papa, booked 6 hotel rooms way back last August to get a really good rate. He and his family are using 3 rooms which leaves 3 rooms available. My parents will be in one and we are trying to figure out the most economical way to share out the remaining rooms. There are 2 queen beds in each, I think V and I and the boys will get one room and one of my sisters, her husband and 2 children in another. Here's the catch. This means we don't have room for J14 unless she bunks with my parents (no offense intended, but my parents snore like a herd of chainsaws!). We had planned for her to sleep in a room with her female cousins. We thought we had it all worked out then found that both nieces' fiances are coming along as well as the nephew we didn't think would show. Now we have 17 people and 3 rooms. NOT going to work!! I can't get anyone to make definite statements and I've been getting confusing messages from my Mom who seems to think that we can get more rooms at the discount rate. I talked to my brother tonight- that isn't possible. And of course, it is a pricy place so reserving rooms at full price will break our budget. But we would all like to be together at one hotel.
I'm getting ready to pull out my hair.
Is anyone else's family this disorganized??? You would think that in this day of instantaneous communication that we could figure this one out. SIGH
