Tomorrow morning (Saturday), Zippy, Wildebeest, Zebu, and I
are flying to Oahu for spring break.
We haven’t had a family vacation in about three years
because the last one we took (car trip) was a nightmare.
Refusal to participate.
Bad attitudes and all-around-unpleasantness.
Zippy and I swore we’d never vacation with them again.
Well, we’ve reached a new place (as a family) and now get along much better.
All of us.
So I suggested we try one more family vacation, this time to the destination of the kids’ choice.
They wanted Australia or London (which we couldn’t afford) and then agreed on Hawaii.
We’re renting an out-of-the-way place on the beach and bringing lots of sun block.
I’ve got high hopes for our time together, and believe we’ll create lots of good memories.
In the meanwhile, I wish everyone a splendid week filled with all-around pleasantness.
