As exhausted as I feel as a working mom, I don’t think I’ve ever needed a vacation more than I do right now.
My house, the ever-constant reminder of things left undone stresses me out something awful. Yes, I need to finish redecorating my bedroom. The bare walls and mismatched furniture are driving me batty. That ridiculous cobweb in the corner of my vaulted ceiling is totally mocking me, and my boys’ grody bathroom needs an industrial scrub down.
For once I’d like to just drop everything, pack our bags, and leave.
It’s time to go somewhere, breathe fresh air, have some fun, unplug, and leave the laundry, icky bathrooms, and cobwebs behind.
I’m thinking cruise.
My dream cruise involves sailing to Hawaii. My kids, currently obsessed with volcanoes and surfing have been just dying to dig their toes into white sandy beaches and play in crystal blue water. Me, I want to see waterfalls, relax on the beach, read, sleep, and maybe even attend a luau. Oh, and learn how to hula dance…obviously.
Aside from the obvious joy of shopping for my cruise vacation, I envision having the time of my life with my family. My kids are growing up so fast and if I could just hold on to a perfect moment on a beautiful cruise ship, I would. We’d spend our days swimming in pools, taking advantage of every possible cruise ship amenity, eating all day, snapping an ungodly amount of pictures, and simply enjoying our time together on the open Pacific.
A cruise to Hawaii with my family – yep, that’s my little piece of heaven right there.
