    It takes too much energy to try to explain, plus nobody really believes you anyway....so we just say that we're going to Cancun and are staying at Blue Bay and leave it at that.

    Last year I told my parents and my mom looked up the resort's webpage. She immediately confronted me about "what kind of place was I going to". I told her it was nothing like she thinks. I told her about the quiet pool..... I think they have one :roll: (I was there once).

    This year I really don't feel like dealing with all of that, so I am going to the oasis or something like that. I looked up another resort name and tell co-workers (I'm a teacher) and family members that I am going to a different resort.

    TTR is my little secret... My husband brags at work!! haha

    My cell worked down there but it was expensive to use. Mind you I am sure the actual phones at the resort were expensive too. But I would have told my whole family that same thing when I went out of town too, only I have small kids and their sitter (who this year happens to be my Dad) needed to know how to get in in a dire emergency and the chance my cell didnt work. It worked fine but I did LOOSE it! So what would have happened if (God Forbid) something horrible would have happened to my kid while my phone was lost and I hadnt told him the name of my resort?

    NOW if my kids were OLDER, really most things I can wait to find out until I return. Would I LIKE to know? SURE! But it isnt like a kid under 18 where I have to make decisions. Even though I did leave a signed paper stating my dad could make decisions until I was reached I still am responsible for them.
    All that said...I even told my kids Dont call me I will call you! (only cause they called me THREE TIMES from the time I landed in Cancun until the time I made it to the hotel in the cab, to tell me "something!" they got home before my Dad I guess! Those calls cost 1.49 a minute!)

    Angi AKA jabberjaws er...jabberfingers??? :p

    We tell our kids exactly that!!! If it is a true emergency they have a list of people to call and I do call and check in every other day or so. 1st trip..our youngest daughter broke her arm the first day we were gone and even though I called they NEVER TOLD ME!!!...didn't want to wreck my vaca!

    As for MIL...mine would "oh me, oh my, oh my goodness" me deaf!!
