I Hate Vacation!!!!

I am in Florida. Much too bright, hot and sunny Florida. My husband loves the beach and wanted to take the boys on a vacation before school starts.

I used to enjoy the beach, until I had my first skin cancer removed and began having migraines. I don't do sun anymore, its not really good for my health. So he takes the boys to the pool or the beach and fries their tender little bodies while I sit up here alone (which isn't half bad! ;) ) Unfortunately, I have to cook all the meals because there is no place that we can all eat as a family due to my little one's milk allergy :( . So between trips to the grocery store for food and stuff we forgot and "just have to have!..... (in a high pitched whining voice) I am on vacation <_< . There is nothing I can do to make it easier, I'd probably have fun if it was just me and hubby, but that would be a whole other issue :rolleyes: ! I know I'm whining. I should be grateful that we can even afford to come down here (the condo is borrowed from a friend) but I feel like a big, smelly, wet blanket. Just looking at the big sliding glass doors is blinding, and it is so hot that I just wilt! Just smile and wave, just smile and wave. I'm fine, no really, I'm fine.....that sounds great.....

there's no place like home...there's no place like home...blast! I forgot my ruby slippers somewhere in the sand!

Not too different from sunny GA, but at least there you are home & have it all down to a science. Try to enjoy a walk on the beach to enjoy the sunset. Sometimes just the sound of the ocean is so healing.

Hugs-

Ah the fickle whims of mother nature...a tropical storm has driven us home early. The thought of being possibly stuck in our rooms without power during a tropical storm has taken us back home early. All in all, it was not as bad as it could have been: I didn't get dehydrated, have a migraine or a melt-down! I actually got to go snorkeling for 20 minutes one morning! Whoo hoo! I was done for the rest of the day. Something about being in water makes me feel like lead afterward, the exertion is just too much. I am looking forward to my own bed, my own kitchen and my routine. Perhaps next year will be better. At least the kids had fun.

I realized that my "family vacations" should really be called my "children's vacations". When they were over, my hubby and I needed a vacation. But, there were many happy moments in between the chaos and I hope we gave our children happy memories along the way. Glad you got home before the storms hit - there's no place like home :P
