Sometimes a vacation is just what you need. Time away from your home, your work, your responsibilities. A chance to see new sights, go on an adventure, or relax by the pool. We all need a break now and then and a vacation can offer you just that. It is up to you to decide what kind of “break” that will be. Some vacations are exciting and exhilarating. Others are more relaxed and laid back. Whatever kind you gravitate toward will probably be just what you need.


It is smart to remember that sometimes vacations don’t always go as expected, so it is a good idea to keep that in mind and go in with low expectations. Sometimes things go wrong and the vacation is disappointing. In that case, chalk it up to life experience. Look for lessons you learned along the way. And enjoy getting home and back to your familiar surroundings and comforting routine.

    A vacation from your PROBLEMS!

    We just watched that the other day with the kids for the first time. They about died laughing. Loved it.

      Haha! That is the best show. Probably in my top ten!! It has some of the best quotable lines of all time. Don’t you love when things make your kids laugh?

      So true, Jane. I asked the kids if they thought that one day we’d laugh about that vacation and they said, “no.” I bet they do at some point, but it may be quite a while . . . .
