Vacation Envy….

green-eyed-monsterI have a little green monster on my shoulder this summer and I have decided the best way to exorcise it is to write about it, so here goes. To all of you who are taking vacations, traveling and seeing foreign places or domestic……I hate you! I hate you!

Well now that I have said it I feel better, lighter, unburdened…… not really but at least you know how I feel. I needed a vacation this year and I did not realize how much until I had to admit we wouldn’t be taking one. It’s the economy and we have been hit pretty hard so not this year and probably not next year either. Now every time I read a blog it is about the family vacation and how much fun they are having (pooh on you) sometimes they are taking more than one (greedy). Even some of my own family is having the time of their lives traveling. Would it be wrong to wish rain storms or locust on you all.

scotlandYou see this was the year I was suppose to go to Scotland. I have waited my whole life to make this trip but now it is indefinitely on hold. I was to spend 14 wonderful days in Scotland and Ireland with maybe a side trip into Paris or Italy. So you have to understand and forgive me dear people for wishing you ill but I just can’t get this green eyed monster off my shoulder. That’s why I don’t really hate you or want you to have bad weather to ruin you vacation, although locust would be good okay, interesting, it is the monster speaking, whispering in my ear such bad things. Instead you go to your exotic locals or Disney World and have the best times of your lives just to spite me and keep posting pictures and videos and blogging about all the places you have been, laugh at me, ha! ha! ha! Maybe that will cause the envious creature to shrivel up and die a horrid death. A little harsh but it’s the only way I think. So the next time you are riding in a gondola or falling down Splash Mountain, remember me and tell yourself it’s for Robin, I’m doing it for her………. Die! Green Monster Die!

    I’m sorry you had to cancel your dream vacation. :(

    I recently canceled my vacation too. Josh and I never go on vacation, it just doesn’t happen. We live paycheck to paycheck so if we wanted to go on vacation it would be on a maxed out credit card…ain’t gonna happen.

    I wish I’d known. I totally would have invited you to Jersey with me. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, Jersey is foreign territory to anyone who didn’t grow up there. There’s just so much to see and experience along the shore the world forgot. So sorry you missed the excitement…

    Next time, I promise.

    I am so sorry to hear about your canceled trip. It’s terrible to plan and anticipate and do all the right things and then not see something come to fruition.

    If it’s any consolation I’m over run with frogs and Mother Nature is slappin’ me around pretty good. It’s not locusts, but it’s close :)

    I’m really really sorry to hear about the cancel =( Hopefully in the future… though waiting sucks.

    Oh, that just plain sucks. I would be pissed, envious, and depressed too. I’m sorry that I’ll be one of those poking the green-eyed monster for a weekend, but if it’s any consolation, I haven’t been on a vacation since my honeymoon six years ago, and we won’t mention the husband’s guy trips.

  6. I swear it’ll rain over here this summer anyway, we’ve just had one weekend of sun which constitutes the British summer. You’ll miss nothing best wait until next year.

    I can relate. I have vacation envy too and I really desperately want a vacation. But we have to keep positive and it will happen. Don’t lose hope.

    I so understand! We were supposed to do something this year – a trip to Switzerland was the idea – but that has fallen by the wayside for money and health – I was beginning to feel quite hard done by but I suppose we do live in Italy so I should look on everyday like a holiday shouldn’t I??

      I don’t think so. If you lived in Disney World I don’t think it would feel like a vacation after a while and I suppose it is the same wherever you live. Although if you have to live somewhere it might as well be beautiful and rich in history like Italy.
