Vacation Starts at 4:30 p.m. EST

Yep, that's right. Pokey gets out of work at 4:30 p.m. and he does not have to go back until 8 a.m. on Friday.

We're a bit skint at the moment so trying to find things to do that don't cost any money. We have thus far found a bunch of museums and art galleries that we could wander around and get lost in. That's about it though... sad, isn't it.

We live where everyone else wants to vacation and we can't find anything to do! Beaches are a common destination but we aren't 'beach people' - hot, sticky, noisy, sand going where no sand belongs... just miserable for us (at least while the sun is up and everyone is there - after hours is a different story and one of our favorite destinations).

Amusement parks have become so flipping expensive that it's insane. Do you know that for just the two of us to walk into the door of the most ghetto of amusement parks in the area would run $140!! To simply set foot inside the gate that is - no food, no souvenirs, no drinks, no nothing and go to one of the better parks is only $2 more but it's a 2 hour drive.

So with those two options coming up bust, we have decided that we are going to go on little dates through out the five days instead. One day we thought we would play miniature golf in the dark, another day we thought we would go to the museums and art galleries, another day we might go have a picnic on the beach (after sunset of course)... all in all, nothing over the top.

Now Pokey is a bit upset over the fact that we can't "go and do" but I look at it this way - he's home, the kids are away and we're alone... that's vacation enough for me.
