April's Near Death Doesn't Alter No-Kid Vacation Plans

This came up in a recent thread and, at the time, I was unable to find the strip I was looking for: Elly telling April that she and John are going on yet another no-kids vacation. When April protests, "But, you went on a boat before," Elly's comeback is "Uh-huh. We went on a cruise last spring! --That was over nine months ago!" Elly looks gobsmacked when April asks, "Do you have to go away again so soon?"

See, what gets me about this strip is that Elly would want to go on a no-kids vacation so soon after her four-year-old nearly drowned. If it were so goshdarned important to have a vacation only ten months after the near-drowning, don't you think Elly would be sufficiently traumatized that she'd want to plan something that included April? Is Elly made of stone?
