forget staycations

I have found myself fantasizing more and more lately.

And it's not dreams of an evening with Taye Diggs. Nor do I wish to go on an extravagant shopping spree. (Well, I do but you know what I'm sayin')

I want to go on vacation.

Maybe my daydreaming was spurred by this picture.

Or I can guess that 19 days into the new year I'm already burned out: at home, at work, at life.

Whatever the reason, I want to fly away. And honestly, the stay-cation just ain't gonna cut it.

I'm ready for a mom-cation.

So why don't I just take a break?

No doubt I worry about cost. There's no such thing as "discretionary income" in this household. And the country is only now recovering from its recession.

Don't forget there's also the little thing called work. It's hard to justify taking time off this early in the year.

But doesn't white sands and a beachside villa sound delightful? Or a cottage in the middle of a beautiful park? Or even a spa retreat surrounded by candles?

I will admit I am currently planning a quick moms' getaway to Chicago with a friend but that's not until May. May! That's a long time from now. I need a break now!

So off to scheme research my potential hotspots. If you don't hear from me in the next day or two, I've either been whisked away to a tropical island. Or I've just been sucked into the warped time of the Internet, trying to hotwire the best travel deals.


  1. Let me know if you find a deal and I'll be there :) I'm tired of the cold weather too.

  2. I hope I get to meet you in May?! Little Quiapo dinner on me, how about it?

  3. This is one of my favorite things to do too. Whenever I need a break I do some vacation traveling on line. Thought I was the only one!
