For the past couple of years at the end of our yearly vacation to the Adirondack mountains I write myself a little note to pop up on my phone a year later. I list things that I think will help me plan for next year and improve the packing and planning of the vacation.
I just received last year's message today. Here it is:
We haven't really found a cabin, or I haven't really found a cabin, that really felt right, until we got the one we stayed at last year. Friends of Brian's family were staying there a couple years ago and we went over the visit them and it was like the best place ever. It just felt so comfortable and not creepy and I wanted to stay there so bad. The folks that own the house visit it every weekend so they only rent it out during the week, which is unusual because most people who rent a house stay for a week not Sunday to Friday. But the house is so awesome I didn't care. We'll stay at a hotel the other nights, I'll sleep in the car, I do not care, this is the house.
Getting this message and assuring myself, oh yeah, well watch me eat fruit this year SUCKER! makes me so happy for our trip. I cannot wait.
