And the weather here has been just beautiful. I cannot tell you how much I love fall
fashion weather. We took Charlie for a walk yesterday and I snapped some of the most beautiful pictures of the different color foliage. I will post those as soon as I get a chance.
But on another note, as much as I love fall, I am not too thrilled that winter is coming. So, I have been itching to start planning our next vacation. I mean, why do people always vacation in the summer? I have always been a proponent of vacations in the winter when it's freezing here, and getting away to someplace warm. Right? Over the weekend, I picked up a ton of brochures, so we will see if the pretty pictures can sway hubs to cave. He thinks we need to save $$ because we are in a recession. I, on the other hand, think we need to stimulate the economy and get away. Now, I just need him to see my point of view (which is clearly the right one).
But you see, I am not to blame for my traveling addiction. The source to blame, would be my parents. They spoiled me rotten by taking me away to far off lands where I enjoyed myself too much.
My parents took me on my first vacation when I was 4 months old and it all goes downhill from there. Up until I was 11 we went on two vacations a year, for three or four weeks at a time. From there on out, as I got older we couldn’t take that much time off school and we stuck to one long vacation in the summer and one short one during Christmas break. In my 25 years of existence, there has not been one year where I haven’t taken a trip.
Some people are addicted to shopping, some to alcohol, some to gambling, or sniffing aerosols. Me? Hi, I’m Mrs. Newlywed and I’m addicted to traveling. But on the bright side I can say that I guess it’s a good thing my addictions aren’t life threatening or harmful to others … right?
Now excuse me while I go put on my sunglasses and make myself a frozen margarita.
