So I want to go on a cruise. A homeschooling cruise with the whole fam damily. The homeschooling cruises are really reasonably priced, and we need a vacation badly. And I'm not saying a camping trip with the trailer, that involves packing the trailer, buying the food, cooking the food, cleaning out the trailer, unpacking the trailer, washing all the dirty laundry.... You get the point. I love camping. Very much so. But the fact is, we haven't ever gone on a "real" vacation. You know, a vacation where you get pampered. Where the only thing you have to worry about is whether to have grapes or oranges for breakfast.
I get easily excited about stuff. Show me something cool, and I need about ten minutes to know exactly that this is what I want (or not). Heck, it took me 2 seconds to say yes, when my husband proposed ten years ago.
I don't like to spend a whole lot of time thinking through an idea... then thinking it through again... and then considering what might go wrong, or trying to come up with reasons why it's a bad idea. I suppose my gut feeling usually doesn't fail me, so jump in and swim, right?
Well, the man I'm married to doesn't function this way. He needs all the information, look it through, calculate, process, and yes, sometimes it seems like he is actually trying to find reasons against something. I'm not holding this against him. He is the way he is, and I suppose that in a way my jump right in attitude and his let's think and process this first attitude mix well, although I'm certain he gets as frustrated with my approach to new idea as I get frustrated with his hesitation.
I still want to go on a cruise. I want to spend the day with other homeschoolers, do workshops, hang out by the pool, see nothing but ocean around me, and eat without having to cook and clean up the kitchen afterwards. So all I need to do now is to create a portfolio with all the necessary information and pricing, then present it to the boss for consideration. I shall keep you posted. :)
