Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mexico, It sounds so simple I just got to go...

My mother (the Saint) teaches special education at the college level (18-22). She takes kids who graduate from the high school program, gets them registered in community college courses, gets them job and life skills training, and teaches them things like how to balance their checkbook so they can function on their own in the world.

Every year, she takes the senior from her class on a trip somewhere. And I'm not talking about the mall. She takes these kids on a trip that they otherwise would never have the chance to take on their own. San Francisco, Disneyworld-- places like that.

So through a bizarre set of circumstances involving parents of students divorcing and such, she has come up one chaperon short for her next trip, so she asked me if I'd like to come along. Well, of course! I've hung out at my mum's classroom many times. She's got great students, and they're really nice kids.

So in May, I'm going on a seven day cruise to Mexico!
