    I need a vacation because I am a “mom.” I am a happily married working woman with two children 7 and 9. Between homework, packing lunches, dance practice, soccer, work, school, laundry, vacuuming, and making dinner, I barely have time to breathe or take any time out for myself. No one tells you how exhausting raising a family can be and although I wouldn’t trade it for the world, it would be nice to just get away from it all!!! I used to watch a commercial when I was younger about a woman that could “Bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan” and think “Wow, she can do it all!” Well, as women we do …Do it all that is every day and give the loves of our lives every ounce of our being. Just this once, I would like to take a little “timeout” for me.
