There is so much planning that goes into a vacation. I mean, obviously there’s the where, what to do, who to invite (cause we all know I can never just go on my own), how long to go, etc. But there is also the whole how am I going to ensure that my children and I are suitably entertained on all of those long airplane rides. Because I can’t seem to vacation close to home. This year we are flying to Nova Scotia, PEI, and Cape Breton Island. I don’t worry about my husband or the others – they are responsible for themselves – but I do worry about how to keep the children that whine at me for something to do quiet.
