Family Summer Vacation

In two weeks I'm going to be taking my children to stay with my family for a week. It will be sort of a mini vacation for me being that my family lives so far away from me and I NEVER get a break from my children. I plan on trying to take atleast one day off of work and spending time doing whatever it is that I WANT to do. Are there any of you planning a vacation or a family vacation this summer?

My idea of a vacation - Caribean sunrise with waves on the beach
Hi my friend, It sounds like you'll have a great time just getting away from things. We don't usually take a vacation anywhere. For one thing, with gas prices so high, it's so expense to go for a car trip anywhere. My hubby doesn't get like a week vacation at a time. He gets them one a time during the year for each week he works. Unfortunately he doesn't have enough sense to save them and take like a week off at one time. He seems to use them up as soon as he gets them. lol Have a great day, Char

We had a few days off from work recently but it wasn't very pleasant at all. We had company here the whole time. It was my daughters boyfriend. He lives quite a few miles from her and that was the best time for them to see each other, so she planned it out without asking us first. My husband and I work seven days a week. We have not really had a vacation to just rest up. This month has been full of bad luck also. My daughter has to have surgery within a week or so to remove a cyst on her ovaries also. I am also scared about that. We don't have time for a vacation but it is very well needed. Sigh.
