Yeah, that list is way too long.
I did fold and put away all of the laundry, hung some shelves (!) and pictures, and got the kids to help me clean up a bit. That took over an hour.
Then I decided to plan for an imaginary 2011 (10th wedding anniversary) vacation. I like the idea of these overwater bungalows in Panama or these overwater bungalows in Bermuda. I like the overwater bungalow idea.
Then I started thinking maybe we should take the whole family to Costa Rica and now I'm researching that. A jungle adventure with monkeys and zip lines and beaches with my then almost 5 and 8 year old boys sounds like a lot of fun .
Then I was thinking we should do Atlantis in the Bahamas. Mr. Ashley and I visited once while we were on a cruise, and once an awesome boss took my whole company on a cruise and to dinner there, and it is amazing. The kids would love it. But it's sort of like the Disney World of travel...not really travel at all. Nice to have no worries though and I know that we like it and that the boys would love it.
So, that's pretty much what I've conquered so far.
I'm going to extend the list to be a whole weekend sort of list.
