1. Drive or Fly. Growing up, we never flew anywhere, then when my daughter was small, we flew because it was much easier with a baby than to drive 10+ hours. Now...prices are so high, we are back to driving.
(We like to call it old school - the parents could do it, why can't we?)
2. Gas. Seriously - need I say more?
(Everything that goes up, must come down .... right?)
3. House cleaning. Is there any logic behind cleaning the house right before you leave for vacation?
(We don't even get to enjoy it because we're gone and when we get home it only lasts long enough for us to drop our stuff on the floor.)
4. Shopping. Nope, not the kind done while ON vacation, but the kind you do right before you leave because you NEED all this extra stuff for the trip?
(Yep, I'm at wal-mart at 7am this morning, getting snacks and last minute things for the drive there.)
Do you have quirks when it comes to summer vacations and preparing for them?
