This week we found out there would be no internet. No cable. There is however an old T.V. and a bunch of videos. Videos. Trying explaining to two 7 year old boys what a video tape is and how it works. You feel ancient. Believe me.
Hubs was less than thrilled about the no cable thing. "Will there be electricity?" he said. Hardy-har-har. I married a comedian. A sarcastic comedian. But, he did perk up a little when my stepdad told him he would be bringing him a couple Cuban cigars. That should keep him occupied for a few hours, at least.
Can I tell you a secret? I am kinda excited about the no internet and no cable thing.
This vacation is going to be OLD SCHOOL STYLE!!
So, how do you prepare for a vacation Old School Style? Here is what I have packed, besides clothes, toiletries, yada, yada, yada..
DS & Games
We'll be in the car. With two 7 years olds. Six hours. Come on! You gotta give me a little leeway here on the video games. Ok? Thanks. Now keep reading.
Books - 4 of them, all for me.
A Deck of Cards
Totally going Old School.
Bottle of Rum
Mama has got to keep her sanity somehow. Remember? NO INTERNET!
This week of family togetherness will include walking on the beach, playing board games, talking - to each other, swimming, reading, suntanning, and building sand castles. This week my family will be unplugged.
God, I hope my phone gets reception!
Family Vacation. Old School Style. Wish me luck.
