The Thing About Vacations...

No man needs a vacation so much as the person who has just had one... 

We all look forward to our vacations and I am no exception.  We expect to relax, have 
good times and to just do absolutely nothing.  This is all so true.  We are soon in
 Norway, and I for one am looking forward to having a good time...

The thing about vacations is that I rarely like to stay in one place.  I like to be constantly
 on the move.  Luckily for me Arvid also feels the same, although I think I 
like to be more on the move than he does. Haha!  I am easily bored.

When we are on vacation I want to see everything there is to see and I do not like to 
just sit around all the time.  Yes, this sounds exhausting and trust me sometimes 
even have to admit it is, but it is also so much fun!!  It's OK to see family
 in moderation, and also good to explore.  A variety is a good thing.

A vacation is like love - anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort and 
remembered with nostalgia...and have you noticed that the best part of the vacation
 is the day you are on your way back home.  Strange how we build up for our vacations yet 
look forward to going back home. As someone said " A vacation trip is one-third 
pleasure, fondly remembered, and two thirds aggravation, entirely forgotten"  
Have a good vacation to all of you heading that way!  Time to start ours.  

Norway here we come.  It feels strange because every year when we go to Norway my
 calendar was so filled with instructions on how and when to give Brutus his medicines.  Now
 it's empty.  I always counted the days to come back home because I missed Brutus of course
 and I worried that no one would be able to care for him the way I did.  How I miss that kitty.

Sniff is good and yes I will also be counting the days until we get back home, but at least I 
will not stress about him needing medicines.  Sniff is healthy and I hope he stays that way
 forever.  My Brutus had paw issues and it killed him.  He took my heart with him.

Well on our way to start our 18 day tour-vacation to in Norway.  Can't wait to see everyone 
especially our two little grand daughters, Aleah and Vanessa.  Can't wait to hold them.

A good day to all.  Just a little reminder.
A good vacation is over when you begin to yearn for your work

Holidays are enticing only for the first week or so.  After that, it is no
 longer such a novelty to rise late and have little to do....
