The Wipe Board Tells Me It's Time For Vacation


"A Vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in." ~unknown

So our family takes vacation very seriously. As you can tell by this itinerary written on the wipe board in April.

We don't go on vacation until September.

We like to go to Disney World once in a while. We love to take day trips to visit new places. But that is not vacation.

Vacation is when we pack our fishing rods, bathing suits and tennis rackets and head to our favorite, secluded beach for 3 or 4 weeks of doing nothing.

We read, take long naps, soak in the jacuzzi tub, swim, build sandcastles, play tennis, do puzzles, watch videos, color, play games, visit the thrift shop, play putt-putt, celebrate Emma's birthday, give massages, fish, walk for hours on end, visit the galleries and gift shops, stay up late, sleep in, go to the park, swing for hours, roller skate, barbecue, stay in our jammies until lunch time, watch Jim Cramer, eat grits, go to town for Cherry limeade...and that's about it.

Now you know what I will be doing, starting tomorrow for the next several weeks.

Oh, and there is no Internet where we are going. But don't worry. I have been hard at work, planning posts to keep you busy until I return.

I will miss hearing from you all, too. So leave me lots of comments and email. We always stop at Starbucks on the way home to sync up email so I can catch up during the twelve hour drive home.

"Have a great trip. I mean, thanks. I will."

Can anyone tell me what movie that came from?

  10. Of course I know that quote. It's from Holiday Inn. Danny Reed says it as he's heading out the door. Do I get my brownie point now?
