“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

…with any luck I will be far more relaxed.  Okay – those who know me in person can stop laughing hysterically at the thought of using my name in close proximity to the term “relaxed.”  It does happen, you know.

Tonight, I leave for Jackson, MS, and the in-laws, and, on Sunday, I will be flying my way to sunny Orlando, FL, where I will spend seven days in a resort condominium with several of my good friends.  And, hold on your your socks – I have nothing, and I do mean NOTHING planned. 

Let me repeat that with emphasis – I, Robbin, have not scheduled a single activity.  I have not bought tickets.  I have not checked calendars.  Nada.

There are vague plans involving the Magic Kingdom, the beach and the volcano pool at the resort.  I have packed the appropriate towel-in-the-sand reading material and sun block.

If you are incredulous about this, I should remind you that I backpacked across Europe, by myself, with nothing but three changes of clothing and a Eurail pass, without the benefit of a single hotel reservation.  I pretty much decided the night before where I wanted to end up in the morning and I slept a couple of nights on train platforms while trading personal possessions with other traveling young Americans and Swedes (for some reason, Scandanavian students make up a disproportionate number of young European backpackers).

So for those of you who think I am incapable of either spontaneity or a placid state of mind:

Poopy on you.

    YOU??? Not make any plans? Not look at a schedule? Not check on anything? That’s just CRAZY!!!! 🙂

    Oh…enjoy your time in Mouse-land! You must be staying at the Polynesian. It’s pretty cool, but the Volcano pool is always flooded with kids (go figure), of course, you are much more tolerant of the little ankle biters than I am! ha..ha..

    Cheers babe and have a great Vacay!!
