Spring Break!! Ain't what it used to be.......
Then vs. NOW
Then: Destination: Daytona & Panama Beach or bust.
NOW: Still going to Florida........ To my parents. In a small town you may not have ever heard of.
Then: Bus trip. Talked Bus driver into playing Journey non-stop. Bus driver picked up lady right inside of Daytona, who rode the rest of the way on his lap.
Now: Honda Odyssey. Will have to put up with non stop Fox News radio since the driver is the hubby, who won’t have anyone on his lap at anytime. Guaranteed. (there will be three kids in the car- I’m adventurous, but not in front of the kids)
Then: Drinking. Throwing Up. Hangovers.
Now: I have a child who gets car sick. By the time we get to my parents I will need a drink. Maybe enough for a hangover. Recovery time might take longer.
Now: Not a Bikini.
Yep. Things change.
I am looking forward to my vacation. My parents are more fun than anyone I ever went on Spring Break with and I won't have to hold their hair back, or carry them to bed. (I HOPE!)
I am cautiously, apprehensively, nervously looking forward to 24hrs in the car with three kids and a hubby. I have already bribed everyone into being good. I told them when we leave, I will give everyone 25 single dollar bills. If you whine, annoy, ask are we there yet in the first 12 hours, cry, fart, spill, tease, aggravate, or wiggle, you lose a dollar. Whoever has the most dollars when we arrive to our destination, wins the dollars I took.
All three kids have developed ways in which they will win this game.
I’m kind of scared.
It’s bound to beat the time we drove home from Spring Break and stopped in every single state to do something fun and still made it home in 15 hours. (This included bowling in Georgia, and seeing a movie in South Carolina)
Is it Spring Break or Bust for you?
