We are vacation people. We really enjoy taking the kids places and showing them things every year. One place we have not been and desperately want to visit is the beach. The kids haven’t been to the beach and it’s all they talk about. So what we want is a nice, relaxing, warm inexpensive beach vacation. Know what?! It doesn’t exist. We are purely a cash family and that means saving money for a vacation but we are also saving money for tuition and L’s birthday and blah blah blah. The worst part of the vacation planning is finding a place to stay, we will drive anywhere in order to relax and have some fun. But the thought of just sitting on a beach and letting the kids play in the sand while I read a book or frolic in the ocean myself, don’t worry I’m not delusional things could go horribly wrong, like L and J could hate the sand or even the water. I am just venting because I am getting frustrated. Don’t you ever get frustrated about things out of your reach?
