When You Need a Vacation from Vacation September 4, 2007Posted by smooregasbord in General, Travel.
Well, vacation was wonderful! I was so looking forward to temperatures in the low 70’s after the icky weather that we’ve been experiencing in DC. The Weather Channel had something else in mind…a “heat wave” in San Diego. Of course, a heat wave by San Diego standards isn’t quite the same to what I’m used to, but it’s still hot. Temperatures were in the low 80’s; fortunately, there was a nice breeze….thank you, Pacific Ocean!
Now it’s back to work, YUCK. It’s so hard getting back into the swing of things after being gone. I am very thankful, however, to have a short week due to the Labor Day holiday. Do you ever get the feeling that you need a vacation from your vacation? Vacation for us is never about relaxing. It’s about go, go, go. We love to take in all the sites that our vacation spot has to offer.
Our San Diego vacation looked a little like this:
Saturday – arrive, pick up rental car (line is a mile long, is Dollar the only car rental company in California), must eat fresh seafood immediately, check into hotel
Sunday – USS Midway
Monday – Scripps Birch Aquarium
Tuesday – Coronado
Wednesday – Temecula Wine Country
Thursday – Outlet Shopping (you know I couldn’t resist)
Friday – San Diego Zoo
Saturday – Pool (one day of relaxation minus the slight sunburn)
Sunday – Travel on a Jet Plane
Then, it was back to reality:
Monday (Labor Day) – unpack, do laundry, pick a few weeds in our newly landscaped backyard, CLEAN HOUSE, wash Dixie, go grocery shopping, make fresh raspberry scones, catch up on my tv watching (especially my trashy reality shows)…the list never ends.
