Holiday World

My family and my brother-in-law's family leave tomorrow for Holiday World. Typically, we opt for Disney World, but this year we thought we'd try a closer, and cheaper option. Holiday world looks like it has a ton of rides for smaller children. That will be great for my two year old. In addition, they also have a water park.

I'm both looking forward to the vacation and dreading it. I love getting away from work. Since I work from the house, there is not the distinction between work-life and home-life as someone who works from an office. However, I'm dreading it because we'll be camping there with my brother-in-law's family.

If you'd ever seen two families spend 7 hours driving in a Dodge SUV followed by two days in a small camper followed by another 7 hours driving back you would understand my dread. I'm sure we won't talk for at least a week after we get back. Of course, that doesn't really bother me because I prefer to be alone anyway.

One thing that I am looking forward to is free soft drinks. Yeah, you read that right, free soft drinks. In Disney World you'll pay $2.00 a bottle for soft drinks, but Holiday World gives them away for free. Wow, that's gonna be nice.

Well, I'll write again on Tuesday when I get back and let you know how the trip went. Until then, take care!

How was the trip? Or have you blocked it from your memory?
