which, invariably, leads to drinking and then moves to crazy ideas. I am definately not the college student anymore, 2 bottles of Mike's Hard Apple Cider over the space of 4.5 hours (I'm a sipper) and I'm ready to sleep. Just call me "Sleepy" tonight. :)
Anyway, my family has some changes coming up and some planning to do. We've sold our home in VA while living in TN (hooray!) but, come May, we need to find a new place to live. It looks like we will be going from one rental to another for a couple months or so until we can find a permanent residence. Unfortunately, finances and timing won't work for us to move just once instead of twice. That's stressful enough, but now we have decided it's a good time to plan vacations before hubby retires (Feb) from the military.
In June, we want to take a family vacation and then later this summer, if I can find someone to take my kids (grandma, you there?) the hubs and I are taking a long overdue vacation. We haven't had more than a weekend in over 5 years. Then we went to Ireland. This time, I'm thinking Tuscany. My goal, to come back sated and inebriated. -wink- (sense a theme tonight?)
Anyway, my thinking is about that family vacation. I want to do something we don't normally get to do but what? What for the teen/tweens that is fun but toucehes on something unique to the US/North America? A few days sightseeing around the Grand Canyon or maybe a trip to Niagra Falls. We will be starting from the No. VA areas for this trip so what to do? Throw ideas at me ladies and gents. I need to get researching costs.
I think renting an RV will cost too much and driving any distance would really stink but... why not fly to a region of the US like hubby and I did in Ireland, then rent a care and drive every couple days to another part of the region to see it? Hmm...
Any other ideas? I'm sorry I've rambled a bit but well, 9pm now and hard cider, okay?
