Vacation, All I Ever Wanted ...


That's the song playing in my mind this morning and that's how I picture myself this week. I mean, who wouldn't love to water ski in a tutu? Absolutely no one.

But, alas, I fear my dream of vacationing near the ocean will look more like this:

Well ... actually more like this:



Please, God ... no.

We're actually on more of a "staycation."

Our plans to get away kind of fell through due to sad circumstances beyond my control. I won't get into that ... too depressing.

So, we've planned things to do around the area. Unfortunately, our "area" happens to be swamps and yucky water parks. But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Honestly, I would be happy with staying home every day .... watching movies, laying out by the pool, eating, sleeping, etc. Sounds pretty perfect to me, but to my children ... BORING.

And, the one bad thing about staying home on vacation ... work is inevitable. Not just job-work, but housework. That's why it's always good to get away so you can truly relax.

So, we are leaving a few days to head down to the bayou {gross}. We've rented a houseboat for a couple of nights with some friends of ours. I'm looking forward to it. Don't worry, Beau is bringing his gun as protection from crazy swamp people and alligators.

I'll keep you updated on all the excitement. The boat has wifi! Thank you, Lord!

I will cling to this all week long:
