Let’s face it, the job of a responsible mother seems to be never ending. Whether working outside the home or not, the needs of the family have to be met.
The cooking, cleaning, laundry, always need to be done. There aren’t always any helpers to keep the home fires burning. How many times have you just heard yourself saying the famous phrase from the commercial “Calgon take me away!”
Not that far fetched is it? Does this sound like you on a busy day? Doesn’t there have to be a better way? It may not be the magic fix of all fixes but a vacation in Destin at The Sea Oats Motel may just be the fix for you!
Dropping hints doesn’t always work does it? Simply saying “boy I need a vacation” may not get you anywhere but more of the same.
The Sea Oats Motel knows you need a break!
Try the direct approach. “Honey, I’ve opened a new account at the bank and made the first deposit for our next vacation, I was actually thinking we should go in a couple of months.”
Sure, you may get met with resistance at first. Shaking up the norm around your house may send shock waves through your spouse. Wow, who is this person making all these plans?
Sooner or later after the shock wears off the appreciation of you taking charge may start to feel good. You may even get an additional deposit to make into that account.
Don’t let the rest of the gang off too easy either. Let everyone know you expect a contribution to the vacation savings. Show them pictures of Destin and all of the possible activities they could be enjoying. Set a goal with a chart of how much you need to do it.
