Psuedo vacation

Vacation

I was trying to come up with some way to get out of town. Hubs called and said he was going to stay in town over night because he'll be working really late and starting real early the next morning (big group in town he's taking care of.)


He invited us along to stay in his hotel room and use the pool and watch movies :) Then tomorrow I'll let C-bug skip school, we'll sleep in until 8 (LOL!) go to a park, maybe the zoo??? have a picnic, do a shoot at the hotel's courtyard...etc. etc.


I can't remember where I had read about psuedo vacations...maybe the super hero journal??? but basically, lets say you want to go to Paris...Unfortunately France is out of the question thanks to your budget...so what you do is plan a psuedo vacation...something to hold you over until you can take the big trip...your psuedo french vacation might be to eat breakfast at a french pastry place, visit the local art museum, watch a french flick, buy a baguette and some ooh la la cheese for lunch, etc.


We take psuedo trips to Disneyland all the time... Disney movies, clam chowder in bread bowls, mint juleps...unfortunately it does only keep us hanging, but it does help a wee bit.

Where do you want to go on vacation???

Downside: Tomorrow afternoon I have to get my rhogam shot in the butt though...not looking forward to that ;)

I adore the idea of a pseudo vacation! I fancy a beach holiday with a lot of drinks sporting tiny umbrellas!

I fancy going scuba diving/snorkeling in Hawaii when the kiddo gets bigger.This is good because it gives me a chance to work on my newly adapted fear of flying. What an new annoying type of fear to have! The kiddo also has to get over his dairy allergy so he is more portable. I've got my sights on age 6--life will do a big turnaround. Meanwhile we put on snorkeling gear and hop in the jacuzzi!
