Everything about life can be a lesson. My family just returned from a 4 day winter vacation, and I took note of some of the things I learned. Some are serious, some are just fun.
~I ALWAYS pack too much. Granted, I didn't know our house would have laundry facilities, but it was still too much.
~Not only can I survive 4 days without internet, I actually enjoyed being disconnected.
~Taking time to prepare food in advance to take along is easier on both the wallet and waistline.
~Exercising on vacation is fun and comes in various forms: swimming, rock climbing, running, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking
~Skiing with my family is fun!
~Milk tastes better in a cactus glass
~Cluttered accommodations can add stress to an otherwise relaxing situation
~Placing large floral arrangements in front of mirrors makes it hard to see one's own reflection (can you see me?)
~Apparently all dressers need two lamps
~Sometimes one floral arrangement is not enough
~Kleenex can be served on a tray
