three weeks ago this Saturday, my husband and I returned home from a week vacation in Florida.
I’m quite sure I wrote a blog or two about it.
Well here we are not even three weeks later and my sister-in-law has asked that my husband and I return to Florida over New Year’s with her and her husband again.

they went with us three weeks ago

Now mind you I love them both and the vacation was very nice and they enjoyed it immensely

probably more than I did as they had never been and I have gone 8 times in the last 20 years.

However I don’t intend to spend every single vacation I take with the two of them tagging along

Do I sound like a bitch?
Also, I have seen Florida 8 times, it is time to do something different.
I told my husband that last year, that I am done with Florida and want to go other places

well knee-deep in an Iowa winter……Florida sounds pretty terrific.


I don’t want to keep going back to Florida.
I want to see other places.

AND I told myself that I was going to limit my vacations to only one a year, unless I went some place with my siblings.

My husband is all for going back to Florida in late December

he loves it there and it quite content sitting on the beach not doing a damn thing.

I find it relaxing for a total of three days and then I am ready to do something else.


what am I going to do to get out of this?daytona beach florida

knowing me I will probably just force myself to go so I don’t hurt anyone’s feelings.

but what I would like to do is just go for part of that time…….say four days or so and not the seven they want to do.

or just not go at all…..
