People Underestimate the Value of a Good Ramble

But why, you ask, why can't he go? Well, you see, last year when we went on vacation in August, he took the week off from work and when he came back, it turned out that there was no more work for him until June of this year. So if he's only going to work for three months of the year, he needs to be working.
Of course, when you say it like that, it makes sense that if he's going to be off for the next 9 months, why don't we just go on vacation then,? But, and I can't stress this enough, this is the stupid family vacation we go on every year and I have to book it a year in advance.
We don't even want this week. We want the week of Labor Day, but we couldn't get our cottage that week - not for the past three years, actually, but that's another story - so we had to take this week.
So now, here we are Or here we aren't. Or maybe just here I am. Alone, on vacation without my husband. (But did I mention the entire rest of my family will be there?)
I need a vacation.
