No really I am. Here me out on this.
I hinted around about another trip on Monday, but didn't go into any details. Last Friday my mom came home surprised me with a vacation to Mexico for graduation!!!
Ahhhhhh. Let's just say she clearly was not expecting my reaction of being far from thrilled. I know I know, I am sure you're all thinking "What the eff Ashley? Who doesn't like a vacation?"
Don't get me wrong. I wasn't ungrateful for this extravagant present. I was the farthest thing from ungrateful, but so many thoughts were running through my head.
**The clear water does look pretty
1) Vacations are a lot of money. No matter how "good of a deal" they can be, they are still a lot of money. I didn't want her spending that much. I would have been just as happy with a $20 gift card to Starbucks.
2) I don't like surprises. Okay, I really don't like surprises.
3) I'm not a fan of flying and traveling. It stresses me out to the point where vacations are not fun.
4) It is all inclusive, which is wonderful except I can't eat any of the food on the buffet anyway.
So I wasn't exactly happy about a surprise vacation, which I had absolutely no idea was being planned for months.
Perhaps after looking at the hotel's white sand beaches and fabulous pools, I am warming up to the idea of it.
Now that I come to think of it, lying on the beach with a fruity drink with an umbrella on top, doesn't sound so bad after all?
I'm off to do the school thing and then hope to squeeze in one more workout before leaving tomorrow!
Question for you: How are you with handling surprises?
