Are you ready?
The Webbers are planning their first REAL vacation trip. And we are totally inexperienced. Totally.
Does everybody do this often? Just plan to go somewhere without it being related to work, ministry or a family reunion?
So, we thought we should see the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone or some great national landmark. Oh, and have I mentioned that we have little to no money to do this with? So, that probably involves camping. And we are not experienced campers. In fact, we hardly know where to start with the camping thing.
So, what I hoping will happen is this:
1) One of my readers will announce that they live right on the edge of the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone and would love to have a family of 7 in their home for a week.
2) One of my readers will have a cottage that they only rent out for special people once in a while, and they'd be happy to share it with us.
3) Or someone will donate a camper that is easy to use?
4) or you all will tell us to stay home for the two weeks furlough and not feel guilty about it.
Yeah. Two weeks furlough at work is why we are being adventurous. They are shutting down for two weeks, and this is non-vacation shut down. Except they've already shimmied it out of the paychecks, so we aren't any more broke than we have been for the rest of the year. Understand? Good.
O.K. input, people. What do poor people do when they want to vacation and see national landmarks? You can email me if you are not a regular commenter and happen to know my email. Not that I want to give it out. But if I were going to give it out, it might be: organizingmommy (at) sbcglobal (dot) net.
I look forward to hearing what the rest of the world does.
