Words of wisdom:

β€œInstead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” – Seth Godin

This is not to say that if you get things just right you’ll no longer need a vacation.

Tell me if this sounds like you.

You work a typical 40-hour-a-week job but due to you being gone, you have to put in extra hours on Friday. You get home late and begin to pack, trying to remember that thing you told yourself not to forget after the last vacation. Exhausted, you get to bed after 2 am knowing that if you just get a few hours of sleep you’ll be fine to hit the road at 5 am to get a head of traffic. Once you get out-of-town, there is an accident in the road construction section of the highway, reminding you that you should have taken the bathroom/lunch break when you had the chance. You arrive at your glamorous beach destination just in time for the afternoon rain showers to come in so your luggage and you get soaked by the time you get in your room. Cranky from the extra long trip, you decry that vacations just aren’t worth the hassle. You could have saved your money and stayed at home.

Plan. Prepare. Perform.

PS. You wake up at 3 am and realize what it was you forgot to pack. . . Underwear. πŸ™‚

    Funny. Very funny. I guess that is why God makes snow days. Mandatory stay at home vacation days.

    Truth be told, I’m a last minute packer with the mantra: We aren’t going to the moon. They have stores for whatever we forget. πŸ™‚ Have A Magical Day.
