We're going on vacation!!

For our entire married life, I have wanted to go on family vacations just for the sake of just our family getting away together. That is never enough for my dear husband. He wants to visit someone. I can count on one hand the times we have gone away as a family just to get away, just us. Actually, I'm trying to recall just one time and can't at the moment.

Yesterday, Ward said, "let's get away, just our cell phones, no computers, no distractions". So today I emailed my sweet aunt in Indiana and asked her if her "getaway" home in Sparta, NC, is available next week. It is!! We are going away for an entire week and there really is no cell phone signal at the house and no dsl. Just a peaceful little house in the woods. I'm so excited! So thrilled Ward would suggest this on his own and so happy the house is available. I know the kids will be bored stiff if all we do is sit around and yak, play guitar, play lots of games, watch dvds, read, sleep and eat (although all of that sounds like heaven to me), so we will plan at least one day outing to get out and explore.

A week away will surely throw me out of the loop even more. I found that as some family situations have been pressing in on us that those things which I found entirely enjoyable before just seem so trivial. It's not as enjoyable to just wander all over the message boards and go digishopping. I still love me some scrappin' though as it seems "purposeful" instead of mundane.
