this is of my daughter and me a year ago, before we joined up with Spark People.com. A lot of weight has disappeared since then for both of us!
We were on our annual Mommy and Me trip last year. We went to the Caribbean and had a wonderful time.
Daughter lives in Massachusetts; I live in Washington state. All the more reason to plan these wonderful, healing trips!
This year, on May 23, we will be going to Las Vegas. One thing on our planned vacation is to hike Red Rock. We are really looking forward to that.
These are the shoes I will take to Vegas.
This is DH, whom I will have a break from.
This is the family Bossy Daugter will escape from.
this is the house I won't have to clean.
These are the cats I won't have to clean up after.
This is the dog I won't have to walk whether I feel like it or not.
Why am I posting all this TODAY???
Because it is Mother's Day, and I am allowed to look forward to whatever thoughts make me happy.
I love my family, home and critters. But sometimes, it is a happy thought just thinking about getting away from all of them.
If you have a daughter, and have not begun going on Mommy and Me trips yet, please, for yourself................DO IT!!!! You will never understand just how wonderful your relationship will become as a result until you do it.
Sure, it is expensive, and we need to plan and save for it for a whole year. But you know what is MORE expensive??
NEVER HAVING DONE IT.
Today is Mother's Day. Make a commitment that you will never look back from this day forward with regret. Get planning, Moms!! go someplace where neither of you have ever been, and find adventure.
You'll love me for it...........PROMISE!
