Vacation yes Relaxing no

Vacation is supose to be relaxing. Well I would think so but for me, its everything but.

I love being at the beach. I want to live here one day. Maybe because thats when Ill be able to relax. 

Like this guy.....

Vacation starts with my Husband spending approximately an hour setting things up like hooking up the camper, leveling it up, rolling out the outdoor carpet. 
Im making the beds, hanging the clothes line. Sometimes the party lights. When thats all done, we will walk up to the store to get ice for the cooler (The refrigerator can take twenty four hours to get cold). And more snacks.

Then I sit back to rest a moment. "Ok whats on the agenda?" My husband will ask. Then its off to Walmart to get food for grilling out and groceries to last a couple days. 

Each morning im up at seven making coffee and straightening up inside the camper. Work is texting me questions on how to do things at the office. Between texting work, we will rush out to get a spot on the sand and drill holes for the umbrellas. By ten after eight, the beach is full. 


Back at the camper I sit down to eat a bite of breakfast then its off for our morning walk. Work is still texting. We will walk three to five miles. Come in, pack up the beach bags and head out to the sand. "Ahhh" relax! Nope, now its lunch time and one of the managers is calling me. Not long after that, its time to hit the showers then prep for dinner. 

With a drink in one hand and a snack in the other, I found time to blog a little but the wifi is weak.

Im not complaining about vacation itself. I love it at the beach and some time away from work, but when Its over, im tired. Ill have laundry to do and Monday morning a pile of work will be waiting on me at the office. 

Im in the need of a vacation from a vacation.

  1. It sounds as if you need a complete break from work, and that your vacation would have been much better if they were brave enough to survive without you.

  3. Maybe at least the sound of the waves, while on the beach, soothed your soul. Looks like your puppy knows how to relax. Lol! What kind of work do you do?

  5. That's what it's like when I take a skiing vacation - I feel like I need a vacation after my vacation!!! My Lake George vacation was just dreamy, so relaxing, we just lazed around and ate and drank for a few days, and went out on a boat. Perfect vacation!! Enjoy the rest of yours, at least you'll have a great tan to show for it!!

  6. We just moved to another camp ground. I am so amazed here in Florida there are lines to get into the park, the two we have been at lately must close the gate at noon, because the park is packed. We drove in past some frustrated folk. "How can they do that, I thought it was full! "Ranger says they have reservations."

    Yes, lady, we watch the families come in and set up for 2-3 days and leave to go back to work. We smile and say, I can remember when that was FUN, but now? Now office to get back to. NICE.
    Son Mark just called said he was buying a camper and moving to a park on the beach, $700 a month. HA! Next week he will have another life -plan.
    Ours is good, this retired plan! ;-)

  8. It's a change of venue and that's usually a good thing for me. Sounds like you had a great time getting some sand in your shoes.
