Who wants to sleep in on vacation, anyway?

It’s day 1 of our mini vacay. I couldn’t REALLY sleep in because I had an eye appointment early-ish anyway, but Taco wasn’t having any of that. SIX THIRTY. A-hole.

This is Taco last night. He’s practically dead. Why can’t he be like this early in the morning?



Now the boyfriend and I are too lazy to go to the beach. Rather, I had everything kinda ready and the boyfriend said “Why don’t we be lazy today and go tomorrow.” I was TRYING to be un-lazy. It didn’t take much to twist my arm. I’m pining for the great weather I see outside, but…I have 4 more days, right? Why is it so much harder to force yourself to do things the older you get? I’m tempted to buy a kiddie pool so I can lay out back and dip my feet in. That’s pretty much the ultimate in laziness.

We did, at least, go to a beach bar yesterday. That’s something.

    WHAT! I hope you got your butt out there, it’s flippin’ gorgeous. We spend copious amounts of money flying to these views for our meazly annual vacations. Urgggg, nothing but mosquito’s and rainclouds here today.

      I did end up going! I DO think it’s easier to enjoy it on a vacation though, you don’t have to lug a million things into your car, then search for a parking spot, lug it all down to the beach. You can get drunk and walk right back to your room. Oh, and we have some sort of “monster” mosquito outbreak this year… we’ll be in the same boat when summer starts.

        True that. Hey maybe book a cheap room on-line near the beach and make a day of it. Late night, sleep in….I think they’re calling them stay-cations. Live it up, you work hard.

        Hah that’s actually the only “vacations” we ever take. First off, I HATE travel planning. I always second guess myself. So here I at least know what I’m getting into. Second, it’s so much cheaper to stay around town. Planning hotel PLUS flights sends me into full blown panic attack. Flight cheap, hotels expensive. Cheap hotels, expensive flights. It’s all too much for me. Perks of being Floridians, we get cheaper rates here. So we ARE going out of town in two weeks for our 10th anniversary…in FL. One of the Keys. I wish I worked hard enough to pay someone to plan this crap for me.

        You’re in the perfect locale to enjoy life. I’m not good at planning vacations either. We actually moved out of our accommodation on holidays after only one night, LOL. The place was nothing like they portrayed on line. So even when you do homework, it can still be a disaster. It all turned out ok in the end. As my husband says “first world problems”. Sounds like a great trip, 10 years is awesome! Bravo.

        Yeah I never trust my judgement on picking a place online! I try to look at the visitor-submitted pics, those help. Also Google Maps’ street view. The reviews I find difficult…I never completely trust really great reviews and I take really bad ones with a grain of salt…after all, you’re more likely to take the action of writing a review if you have something to complain about. And yes, first world problems indeed! But you know, I’m a firm believer in wallowing for just a bit, regardless of how stupid something is, then you pick up your bootstraps and move on. And thanks! Yes, it’s amazing we haven’t killed each other yet =)
