Hi. My name is Miki and I am a vacation-a-holic. I have looked it up, and I think that all the symptoms are ones that I can relate with.
vacation-a-holic: counts down to vacations with paper chains, and widgets. Enjoys every waking moment on vacation. Then after the high of a vacation adrenaline rush, rethinks their life. How could I be on vacation all the time? Why can't I cuddle my husband 24 hours a day? Why do I have to rely on an alarm clock? After rethinking life a V.A. takes about a week to recover from the after vacation depression, by looking over the photos again and again, texting other attendees texts that start out "remember that time...?"
I am really struggling to get back into my routine that I had previously, which really only consists of going to work. You should have seen me trying to wake up yesterday, it was such a joke, today I was even worse. I keep thinking is this real? Am I really home? Damn.
I did miss my puppy though. Next vacation she's coming. I actually had a dream last night, that Betsy (my sister in law who planned the trip) told J and I that we were the only ones allowed to bring our dog, because otherwise the dogs on that trip would have outnumbered the humans. It was a good dream.
As I sit here reminiscing. Come reminisce with me?
We had a neighboring houseboat full of friends, one night they all stupidly went boating, and we went old school on those suckers. We definitely toilet papered them. Definitely.
We played the Newlywed Game. Josh was our MC, this was the tie breaker round. Jared and I got 3rd place. To be fair the two "newly-weds" had been married the longest! 7 years for the winning couple, and 3 years for the 2nd place.
Jaquie, Colyn, Me and Jared in our insane twister match. J and I killed it. Don't you threaten us with a twisting time.
We lit off Chinese Lanterns almost every night that we were there. They are so gorgeous, and when you are in the middle of a lake with nothing but skies, you can see them gracefully float to the ski with no obstacles, and it truly is incredible. Side note: We tried to do this in SLC for New Years, and they would light because it was so windy, and then they almost burned down the neighbors house. Good thing Brant is a trained fireman.
What was your favorite part of my vacation?
