Vacation stress: individual expectations and clueless
Thursday, June 24, 2010
Tonight I suffered from a mild case of vacation stress.
This is the part where the teenage son has other plans, but you really really want to spend some together family time, and the dh thinks you are picking on the son, and you blow up because you feel nobody wants to do anything together. My teen also felt the choice in beaches was not to his liking either. I stormed outside and sat by the fish pond to breathe.
Perhaps I just need some sleep and will feel more focused tomorrow.
I wanted to go to the beach tomorrow, but it sounds like storms are expected.
Plan B will be in effect I presume, go to see more family, and to a favorite inexpensive movie place, and save the beach for Friday.
Plan C - get more marble chips, a table, an outdoor fireplace and enjoy the backyard.
On a positive note, I did find a tankini that fits! And it is a size 16, so that is smaller too. I gave dh a brief fashion show. His reaction when I showed him it was 2 pieces "It is a bikini."
me: "well, it is called a tankini."
him: "It IS a bikini, it has 2 pieces."
Boy do I want to go swimming!
