Two Weeks Until Vacation – The Law of Relativity Takes Over


I am no physicist, but I do know that objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.  I hope this goes for my long awaited vacation to New Zealand as well.  The Love Slave, our children and I are departing two weeks from tomorrow.  So how come the vacation still seems so far away?

Well, for one thing it’s a THREE WEEK VACATION.  I feel practically European about it.  We’ve talked about this vacation since the first Lord of the Rings movie came out in 2001.  Our then 11 and 13 year old children were entranced.  The Love Slave and I had never been there.  We told the kids that if we could afford it after college was paid for, we would go.  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.   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?
