Vacation time

Our annual vacation begins in 2 days. Most of the planning has been done. YK pulled out of the trip because of exams and so forth. SK hasn't started packing. CH is completely overwhelmed with work. I'm beginning to feel half-hearted. If nobody is interested in the vacation, why even bother?

Ok, I'm venting here but come on, I'm not sending you all to a bootcamp. I could use the money to go on a trip with friends who are 100x more excited. I'm not planning any more trips.

Boys/men usually pack last minute. How much do they have to pack anyway;)

So don't be deceived into thinking they are too cool about the vacation. I suspect that they will be as excited as little puppies at the airport, or earlier.

Enjoy our holiday! How i wish Kimi and I can fit into your luggage!!

Yeah guys never show how excited they are until AFTER the fact! Where y'all going anyways?

They PRETEND!!

Blur Ting said...

Rummi - True. They always underpack! It would be so fun if you and Kimi could come!

Blur Ting said...

JY - CH used to be so excited when we're going on holiday together. This time he's so busy with work, I feel like a criminal dragging him along.

Blur Ting said...

Petunia - Really? You're so cute!

Enjoy your holiday! I'm sure you'd have a good time!

Hey, I am excited! Looking forward to seeing you soon :-)

Blur Ting said...

OKC - Yes, I am sure everyone will be happy once we get there!

Blur Ting said...

CKL - Yes, that's probably one of the biggest reasons why I am so excited! Looking forward to seeing you!!

I'm not overwhelmed. I just need to take care of business so I can enjoy the trip in peace. You'll see my enthusiasm come through then. For now you'll just have to put up with my seeming indifference. :-)

Happy holidays to you! I bet the guys will be enjoying too!

Same same in my household.

Before our trip to Europe, I asked my husband how he felt about it and whether he was looking forward to it.

The very disappointing answer that I got from him was, "OK, normal."

Perhaps it is really a male thing. When I probed, he said that he was concerned about whether everything would go smoothly, hence all the worrying.

I hope you all have a good vacation nonetheless.

I bet you ain't going to BKK. Boys lack of enthusiasm is understandable ;)

Blur Ting said...

malar - Thank you. I'm sure they'll have fun.

Blur Ting said...

Ash - Sometimes when we are too efficient, we get taken for granted. Put them in charge of planning then they'll realise how much effort goes into it.

Ash - We're going to Western Australia. Though we've been there before, this time we're covering the wine region of Margaret River followed by Scarborough Beach. Away from the city and crowd!
