Vacation. One word that should make me thrilled beyond belief but instead makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a spoon, paper clip, ink pen, or anything else within reach on my desk. If you have read my previous post, “Vacation Woes,” then you know what a disaster it has been trying to figure out where we want to go on vacation in February for our anniversary. Needless to say, I’m so annoyed I don’t even remember the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th list.
Normally, this would be my reaction… (Ignore the fact that the balloon says “it’s a boy.” You get my point.)
Instead, I find myself like this.
I brought up vacation the other night and Brady feels the need to go to Disney World even though he has been TWO TIMES already. Being the nice wife that I am, I bust my butt for a full morning getting this crap quoted. I take it home at lunch and he nearly dies when he sees the price. I tried telling him all along it was going to be expensive but he refused to listen. We could charter a yacht for a week in the French Riviera and it would be cheaper than 5 days at Disney World. Okay, so I may be exaggerating, but you get what I mean.
Anyway, back to the point I was trying to make. We are not going to ever agree on a place so here’s what I am going to do.
We are each going to pick 2 vacation spots; 1 in the United States and 1 that requires a Passport. The destinations will then be written on a piece of paper and cut into equal sizes (he’ll cheat if he cuts them) and placed in a hat (or bowl). Two places will then be picked from the hat. The 2 that are picked will then be put back in the hat and 1 will be drawn. The 1 that gets picked is where we will go. END OF DISCUSSION. I can already see the hissy fit I’m going to throw if Ireland doesn’t get drawn. With that being said, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can rig it so that my pick get drawn? 😀
Anywho, so sorry for the rant but I’m about to inflict bodily injury on myself with an inanimate object if we don’t figure this out soon. Does anyone else fight with their spouse about where they are going on vacation?
