Planning a vacation is one of my favorite things in the world! Actually planning anything is my idea of a good time, but vacation planning is the best! According to my oldest daughter, I’m so good at it I could have my own show…
Me: So far I’ve found two vacation options. The first is a lovely spot within walking distance of the ocean. Nice! The beach is all I really want to do anyways.We can spend most of our time in the sand, but it’s a resort so there’s also lots to do in the evenings or in case it rains. There’s a restaurant on site, too, but this place is the most expensive choice so we’d probably eat most of our meals in our cottage. It has a full kitchen so that’d be no problem.
Aubrey: That sounds pretty good.
Me: The other option is a place up north. We would stay in a cabin so it’d be sort of like camping. We could cook our meals over the fire, do a little hiking, enjoy some outdoor time and outdoorsy stuff … and it doesn’t really get too hot here in Washington, so it’d be nice, right?
(At this point Aubrey started laughing hysterically.)
Aubrey: You sound just like that show! The one where they’re selling houses and give them three options?!?
ME: Ha! House Hunters! I love that show!
(Then it dawns on me what my teenager just said …)
Me: So what you’re saying is I’ve given you the lovely-but-probably-too-expensive option and the cheap-but-crappy option, and now you’re waiting to hear the affordable-AND-enjoyable one…
Sigh, gotta love my kids … 🙂
