Next Up: Vacation Plans


This morning the temperature outside my door was 15 degrees warmer than a the same time yesterday. It was 29 degrees! Cold. I am already dreaming of vacationing on a warm Caribbean island.

Chris and I began the planning for summer vacation in earnest last evening. Destination? Well, as close as we could get was the Caribbean--somewhere. We did determine that we want to experience somewhere that we have not been and so that actually excludes a few places. 

But it is stressful. Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable, why is the planning process so stressful?

So many questions. Are we going to do a land vacation, or a cruise? A resort or on the economy? 

Despite the mundane, the dreaming is very nice, especially on the third consecutive below freezing morning. Give me a hot, sandy beach somewhere with a cold drink in my hand and my snorkeling gear at my side.
