Why is your job an ideal one?
b.  What is the ideal job and why if you are not there?

What are you looking forward to?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?  Ten (if you can project that far ahead, Lol!)?

Bonus:  Do you like the name George?

Eating out every meal gets old to me....but then again, I love to cook!

I agree that I get tired of it too, but for a few days not to have to do it and be pampered, it is great Laughing

We really have different types of vactions!  Beach house vacations require cleaning, laundry (beach towels!) and all kinds of people coming in and out...it's a blast.  OH and there is nothing better than cooking the shrimp, crab or fish you caught that morning!  Yum!

Yeah, I try to do the LEAST amount of work on a vacation, THAT is why it is called a vacation, IMO. When I am on vacation at my mom's I will do the laundry and help around but for the majority of the time, she tells me to just go and relax, she will cook or we go out to eat, she cleans, etc.

I think that's a hallmark of a great vacation ~ wishing and planning when you can go back (even if you never do!)  There are just too many great vacation spots, too little time.  We went to an island twice because it was all-inclusive and so kid-friendly.  I don't think we'll repeat a vacation again unless it's Disney again.  But, as they get older and easier, we're trying to be more choosy and not repeat.

<<So they want to go back again and again to the vacations you take them on?>>

Do they want to go on vacations again and again...yes.  We have returned to the beach multiple times and will go again next spring (looking now!) and we were just talking about another vacation to Europe either next year or maybe the year after....talking about places we want to visit.  

Again spring, there are 52 weeks in a year, do the math.  I think family traditions and rituals are just as important if not more so than vacations or you can combine them as well.

<<That is great. I guess those are the weekend vacations you have spoken about. >>

I think so, my kids have great friends.  But no, they are not limited to weekend vacations but some of them were weekends, yes.

<<Well that's nice but doesn't answer the question.  What are you trying to say to sav an myself with your comments about vacation memories being more than daily memories?

All of this about a real vacation (shouting real) was about nothing?  Well that is interesting.  lol

No, I never brought up the things you are bringing up so not sure what you are trying to say.

Ugh, laundry.  We have what's called for tax purposes a secondary property and with some exception, we do most of the clean up ourselves.  The kids call it our vacation house, it's on the water and we go often, bbq/boat/etc. with the neighbors.  Even tho I don't work, I still prefer real vacations where all meals are eaten out, no cooking and cleaning, something gets dirty~then buy a new Disney t-shirt, lol!  Even the unemployed need vacations.

So, you define "vacation" as a state in which you have domestic help?

Yeah, I don't usually like to do laundry on vacation but it is not too bad when we go to my mother's house as then I go home and just put everything away. Outside of that, I will either send it out or wait until we get home.
