Gonna soak up the sun

I'm not often given to spontaneous little dances, but yesterday I was.

I'm going to Florida. For six whole days. In February. By myself.

Well, its not entirely accurate to say "by myself." I'm flying alone, but when I get down there I'll be visiting my mom and my wonderful Wicked.*

I can't wait. I need the break.
It's not my family that has me needing a break. I need a break from all of the other demands on my time and energy. I'm finding myself increasingly mentally exhausted. And I'm not even accomplishing the things that I need to accomplish for my family.

So, what to do?

Run away to the beach for a week, of course.

*Wicked is my pet name for my sweet step-father. Step-father just is too cold. And that is part of another post.

Dang girl! Have a great time! I'm hoping to sneak away this spring too, but in my case it will be a road trip with the kids, to Hilton Head.

It has been almost a year since we packed along with Rick on a business trip to Florida. Have a great time!

You already know I'm so jealous ;-) You're lucky we're letting you go for that long ;-)

Oh, you will love it! That is awesome. I can't tell you how great it was to be in Phoenix last March. Just to go outside without a coat and be in the sunshine was a huge treat!
