Of course, in addition to the obvious pros of vacationing, there are certain challenges that I have learned to expect.
For example, we have the booking of a place to stay in areas that all seem to be having conventions during the time we were planning to go. Then there is the packing of every food item, utensil, and shred of clothing that we just might need (but generally don’t need half of). In my dubious attempts at conscientious preparation, there is the preemptive car maintenance in which I do more damage than good. Then somehow we have to cram children into an overburdened vehicle that literally groans when I finally manage to mash the back hatch closed. And finally there are the long, long miles of driving while running out of “fun” travel games after only an hour of driving; and the incessant cries of “Are we there yet?” and “Oops! I hope that doesn’t stain the seat!” Other than those things, vacations are great (so I’ve heard). Of course, it’s always good to get home and get back to work (so you can finally rest).
