Thanks to my generous father and our caregiver, my husband and I slip off (childless) into the wee hours of the morning to hop a quick flight to Miami.

It's no surprise that the royal baby tops my list--I will admit to being as excited as anyone when that baby was safely born. But what I can't help but think about is the pressure for Kate to emerge from the hospital and show off baby George, which she and Prince William did so graciously.

I Hate Taking Vacation, and I'm Not Alone

Here's a secret. I like to work holidays, even weekends. I'm not proud, or even boastful. Logically, I know that any work expands to fill the amount of time allotted to it but I can't help myself and honestly, vacations are not something I find comfortable. I'm not alone. Perhaps our concept of vacation time merely needs to be revisited. If completely unplugging for a week -- or heaven forbid two -- feels too drastic, then maybe a new definition of holiday is required.

I'm a list maker. In fact I love making lists. But as time and luck would have it my computer crashed two days before we left on vacation and I couldn't access any of my packing lists. Later when the absence of water shoes resulted in a clam shell injury to one of my daughters' feet, we realized that the first aid kit, newly loaded with all sorts of band-aids, ointments and first-aidy stuff, was left sitting on the kitchen counter.
