Kristin and I have also made our decision about our May vacation. Apologies to everyone in Florida that we've been hinting we might come visit. What can we say? We're horrible teases. No, that's not true. We want very much to go to Florida and meet all of you. We just didn't think it was the best idea for our first vacation with Julia.
So. We decided to go to Oregon instead. We miss They Who Have Abandoned Us too much to pass up a chance to go see them, and Kristin has family there who haven't met Julia yet.
After spending DAYS on the phone with each other at work, co-surfing beach property rental websites, we finally reserved the Treehouse above for a lovely 7 days. 7 days filled with the sound of the ocean. 7 days of walks on the beach. 7 days of periodic visits from friends and family. 7 days of reading and playing and sleeping. 7 days. 7 days. 7 days of heaven. And a total of 11 days away from work.
God, I can't wait. How can I wait? I have been reduced to periodically hiding in a small private telephone room at work.
Now, when I'm hiding, I can be making lists of things we need to buy before going, and things we mustn't forget to pack before going, and things we should remember to tell our house/dogsitters before going and things we must be certain to see while there...
