We are going to the beach for a week right after the 4th!!!! I'm so excited - we haven't been on vacation in 3 years.
It came up out of the blue this weekend while we were staying at my in-laws. My MIL has wanted us all to go on vacation together for years but we just never managed to coordinate schedules. Now we have a compelling reason. My SIL and her husband are going overseas on a teaching/mission trip at the end of July. They will be gone at least 1 year and possibly longer. So as a going away present MIL & FIL decided to take us all to the beach for a week. And even better - because it was a last minute rental - we got a great discount on the condo rental. Now I just need to get myself organized and plan what we need to take. We are there for 6 nights - I'm thining of asking SIL and I to split the 6 nights and each make dinner 3 nights. That way my MIL won't have to worry about cooking - since they sprang for the condo I figure the least we can do is bring the food.
I've got a Dr's appointment next week - I need to be sure Dr. J feels OK with me going away for a week - but I think it will be OK. It's just 3 hrs away from home. Keep your fingers crossed that everything stays OK between now and then (and after...)
All I can say right now is YEAH!!!
P.S. The yarn store was so much fun on Friday - I bought way to much. But I did resist the $40 white alpaca that felt like a dream! Yaya had a great time too. They had all sorts of little kids stuff at the yarn store. Then we went and got pizza for lunch at my most favorite pizza place that I never get to go to anymore. It was a wonderful day.
