This is my Vacation.

Hello!  I am sitting here at a beautifully hand crafted hard wood table, looking out at the dizzying view: Blue skies brushed with a few white clouds, gentle breeze making the lake shimmer with texture and blowing through the open windows to cool my cheeks.  I'm eating a salad of lettuce, chicken, quinois, sweet ripe peaches and roasted almonds and fresh corn on the cob.  The music is playing in the background on the surround system, not to loud, just perfect.  And I am not hearing the sound of my kids voices, squealing or arguing.

  I've given myself a well deserved (and very cheap) vacation up North at my parents house.  Sans-famille!  The drive that normally takes at least 5 and half hours took an hour less, I was able to read a few chapters of one of my summer books, because my dad was driving.  I'm still not sure how I'm going to get home, but for now, I don't care. I don't have to cook for anyone, I don't have to supervise, play, referee, or clean up after my kids.  My plan is to recharge my batteries, read at least 2 books, and hit the gym.  Ahhhh....
