Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Talking It Through
Tomorrow is the day. I get to go for the re-take of my Mammogram. I really should not have mentioned what a wonderful time I had, as they have invited me back for more tests. Yay. So as I sit here wine free (because the mood I'm in would surely lend itself to a nasty hangover), I'm becoming more and more convinced that what I really need is a vacation.
With Kissimmee giving away 3 weekend vacations (for 2) and 2 two-week vacations (for 4), I'm having a hard time deciding which I would prefer to win. Hubster and I could take a weekend trip plus an extra day for driving and spend some nice overdue time together. On the other hand, two weeks in a hotel with all the amenities and a pool for the kids and Shamu close by would be ideal as well. I don't think I've ever in my life been on a vacation that lasted 2 weeks. No cleaning, no laundry, no complaints of boredom, no cooking.
I spend a lot if time with the kids, in my current position, so having another adult to spend the time with as well as to share the kid duties would be a vacation all on it's own. We've talked about taking the kids to Sea World and if it doesn't happen this summer, I hope it will be in October, providing I can talk Hubster into taking the trip to Izea Fest.
With so many things to do in Kissimmee it's hard to pick. I am not one to over book vacations, nor do I need to have an activity scheduled for every day. I honestly think the kids would be happy lounging by the pool each day with an excursion to Sea World one day and a couple night time trips out for ice cream and a round of miniature golf. The important thing would be time spent together without the hustle and bustle of our every day lives.
I guess I do have a preference of which vacation I would like to win. Amazing how talking it through makes the choice clear.
It would also be a great opportunity to check out some wines that I have wanted to try and can't find here.
