Pretend you are on vacation

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to take a vacation every week.  Yes every week.  Multiply 2 days X 50 weeks, that's 100 days of vacation a year, without counting your 3 or 4 "official holiday time".  Well, maybe if you are either a single parent or a 2 working parent family, that's a lot to ask.  What about taking 2 days vacation every second week -  that will still give you 50 extra holiday days.  Many of you will say it's impossible.  Well, it is not impossible.  All it takes is some planning and some imagination.  Who said, "what you can conceive, you can achieve"?

What do you do when you are on vacation?  You play, you visit places of interest, you BBQ, you go on a picnic, you read your favorite book, you go to the beach, you go dancing, or see a movie, or a day trip in a little town nearby, well, that's what I like to do -  what do you like to do?

I dare you to 1) choose 4 weekends out of the 8 left before September 1st  2) plan and execute all your errands, washings, shopping, "must do" on weeknights and on the "in-between" weekends so that all the "shoulds" are done, and 3) imagine that the 4 chosen weekends are totally  play and "want to" and "love to" times - Then, like any other vacation, planning is important.  Use a calendar or a day planner or any other mean to fill those extra vacation days with fun stuff.
