I am no physicist, but I do know that objects in the mirror are closer than they appear. Â I hope this goes for my long awaited vacation to New Zealand as well. Â The Love Slave, our children and I are departing two weeks from tomorrow. Â So how come the vacation still seems so far away?
Well, for one thing it's a THREE WEEK VACATION. Â I feel practically European about it. Â We've talked about this vacation since the first Lord of the Rings movie came out in 2001. Â Our then 11 and 13 year old children were entranced. Â The Love Slave and I had never been there. Â We told the kids that if we could afford it after college was paid for, we would go. Â And now, 12 years later, we're going.
And preparing for going is a herculean task, kind of like Sam carrying Frodo up that mountain. Â I'll be whining, I mean blogging, about getting ready over the next two weeks.
What do you do to ensure you can relax on vacation?
