Spring Break for the New Economy

Mr. Neurotic Parent is concerned because we are about to spend our dwindling life savings on a costly private university, not to mention dozens of cross-country flights, a mini-refrigerator and a bean bag chair from Bed, Bath and Beyond. 

Yes, these are frugal times.  But spring break is coming up, and it might be the last occasion that our two children share the same April vacation dates. 

So Mr. NP consented to an inexpensive getaway, and after weeks on hold with the AAdvantage people, I managed to use mileage to procure four tickets to Belize.  There we will live in a jungle treehouse for 5 nights, then move to a shack on the beach. 

I was feeling proud of my budget vacation skills until I realized that we will be cave tubing in the rainforest without Verizon or Internet during the period when the majority of CJ's classmates (and the anonymous random neurotic students from College Confidential) receive their college acceptances. 

How will I function without my Blackberry? 

How will I live with the suspense? 

Surely there must be somewhere near the Guatemalan border with a proper business center.  Or I just might have to count on my kids' IT skills…They will surely find a way to get the news.
