And the count down begins....

Fun, sun, sand, ocean, spa, tall cool drinks with little umbrella's! I am beginning the count down-4- days to go! Los Cabos.... Wooohooo. It's been a LONG time since I've had a 7 day vacation. It will be amazing I am sure! No plans, just relaxing, playing it by ear.

In my last relationship, I never realized how different our desires were. He traveled a LOT for work, so he wasn't big on vacations. Myself on the other hand valued vacations above all other toys, motorcycles, cars and possessions. I like the idea of going away for regular vacations and making memories together. It is an investment in your relationship and future together. I think if we'd done that more, we'd still be together. Yet- even when on vacation, he had a hard time relaxing.

His idea of a vacation was sight seeing, doing stuff constantly. Me, not so much! Let me relax, let me get a tan, let me just enjoy the weather. A day or two of planned activity is great, but I don't want to go non-stop when I am on vacation. Part of the fun is relaxing so you can feel more sensual, sexual and share intimate moments and memories.

I have a silly recurrent nightmare- but it has helped me immensely when I do have it. This is the usual scene- I go on vacation, I've been dreaming of this trip, I get off the plane and am wisked away to the hotel where I spend the entire time indoors, going and doing things I really don't want to do. All I want is to go to the beach, get a tan and relax by the ocean. But... all of a sudden- MY VACATION IS OVER! I haven't done anything outside, nothing I wanted to do. I've spent my time doing everthing everyone else wanted, I get onto the plane with NO TAN. The tan is an important souvenior to me. It is a critical piece of the vacation! Then I wake up, teary eyed and thank God it wasn't real.

Yes, it is a silly dream. It is a recurrent dream. I haven't had it in a while now, but used to have it quite regularly. I've asked several "experts" what it meant. They answered (after laughing) that it means that in my life, I am not pleasing myself, I am pleasing everyone else. (true) I go along with everyone else and what they want. When I have the dream, I need to re-evaluate what is happening in my life at that time and remember that this is MY life to live. So, since last fall 2004- I started planning more trips and it has been fabulous for me. Sometimes we get so caught up in what we HAVE to do, instead of what we WANT to do that we forget to enjoy today.

This year I have two vacations planned. My first 7 day vacation in about 6 years and another girls vacation to Vegas. I can't wait! It gives me something to look forward to. Also it is soooo dreary here in MN right now that it depresses me. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)is a real problem in the winter months in the state. It is a case of temporary (winter)depression as a result of shorter sunny days and lack of sunshine. I tan, so that helps me. I am considering buying some of the light bulbs to help with it as well. It is also good to get outside and do some winter activites, snowshoeing, skiing, walking, ice skating (none of which I do)

My point is that we all should be evaluating our lives and do a check once in a while. Ask yourself if you are truly happy. Only you can make yourself happy. It is also the only thing you have control over. I learned that lesson about 4 months ago. Once I let go and quit trying to control everything... things got better. Nothing will change if you continue to do everything the same way.

And a willingness to change....

I highly recommend the Cabo Wabo Cantina. It is Sammy Hagars club and it is the best, something for everyone. "The Cantina holds distinguished status amongst the world's greatest fiesta-goers."

So go young fiesta goer and report back with all sorts of yummy details!

That sounds like a great time! I'm kind of jealous. I don't have a warm weather vacation planned this winter. All my vacations and get aways include more snow and higher elevations.

So your going to get a tan no matter what on your trip - the real question is whether or not your coming back with tan lines!
