We are going on vacation this coming Friday and I am excited. We've rented a home on a small island in the Gulf Coast and we're flying our sons down and the four of us will be a family again for eight days. One son has just completed another year of college. The other works in a restaurant which is closed the month of May, between seasons. My husband is trying to start a business and I am ready for some time off after a long season of learning the business of television advertising. The nicest part is we will be together and have time to talk. The island requires bike riding, is very undeveloped, has nice bars and restaurants, nothing chi chi. Rest, relaxation, reading, sleeping and spending time with the boys. We were somewhat daunted last week by the swine flu H1N1 scare. That seems to have dissipated somewhat so I'm less anxious about it. I hate feeling intimidated by media frenzy but I have been.
