If you’ve ever seen the original Willy Wonka, you totally get that title…
Day 13’s challenge question: What is something you really want??
Do you know what I really, really, really, really, really want right now?
I want to go to the beach.
I would say, it’s that simple, but that might not be exactly true!
What I really want is to go to the beach–preferably on the Gulf side of Florida–for a week with my little family and not have to spend the majority of the money we have put back for vacation on a place to stay!
I’m not sure that’s going to happen. The last time we went was about three years ago during spring break. I don’t know if it’s because summertime rates are always higher or if prices have just gone up, but I can’t find anything available that isn’t going to take most of vacation budget. I also have a theory that everyone got really sick of winter and they are all making a mass exodus as far south as they can afford, for as long as they can afford to stay there!! I really don’t blame them.
I’m still looking for a place though. I’m being pretty flexible with dates and locations. I even suggested going the first week of August, although Spizzie’s school may start that week (it seems to get earlier and earlier).
I know it wouldn’t be the worst thing if we couldn’t go to the Gulf side or even to Florida at all. I’ve been to some really nice beaches in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia and I wouldn’t mind going back.
It’s just that once you’ve seen that white, white sand and that blue water, nothing else seems as nice. Except maybe the Caribbean. Yeah, I could totally go for the Caribbean…
