From Sea to Shining Sea: Beach Vacation

It's only Wednesday and this has been a rough week already. For the pass few weeks I have just been so busy and I still have so many things left on my to do list. It's getting to the point where things are marked URGENT. Deadlines are quickly approaching and even though I am working nonstop it just feels like I am not making any headway. I have online classes to finish for my masters, planning and grading for my teaching job, projects that I need to finish, and a trip to Florida that I still haven't finished planning. All of this has to be finished before I leave for Florida in 10 DAYS!
All of this stress has me really longing for my relaxing beach vacation. I am definitely ready to enjoy some sun and waves while relaxing on the beach. I am ready to get away from it all. This trip will be fun even if I'm not exactly sure what all I am going to do while gone. Part of the fun can come from the surprise, right? Any suggestions? Are you ready to get away from it all too?

  4. Ah, I'm longing for a vacation too... so bad!

  5. Oh, I'm sorry to hear how overwhelmed you feel! The last weeks / days before a vacation are the worst: there are always so many thing that need to be taken care of! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! Good luck, dealing with everything :)

  6. Oh, being overwhelmed like this sucks. At least on vacations, you can have the fun of just making it up as you go along. Good luck with everything!


  7. Whew! Breathe Jessica! Breathe! Don't think about it all. Make a plan to do something everyday to get everything done. Take it day by day! Good luck! HaHa

  8. You'll get it all done, dear. And, even if you don't, you're going to Florida so it doesn't matter. ;-)

  9. Oh I cant wait till I take a nice vacation! That bikini is gorgeous.

  11. When you get there: Go get some sleep and RELAX! :D
    You are already stressed from getting your other deadlines finished, no need to stress about your vacation too.

  12. I haven't been on vacation for two years now, and I am definitely "feeling it"... I really should buckle down and plan one. At least you have something to look forward to, besides the deadline and stress...there will be a reprieve soon..and a drink with an umbrella :)

  13. Whee! Congrats! I'm headed to Hawaii in two weeks myself!
