Challenged with Time For one thing, as parents SO and I only have so much time alone together. So when we plan on a vacation, we wanted to be very special. Recently, my son expressed the idea of traveling to a resort in the Mediterranean. It immediately spark an idea in my head and I started my search for med cruises information and prices. Look at the photo on the left, isn't it beautiful? The blue water is refreshing!
We have a long list - more like several lists - of places we
would like to see and things we would like to do. But of course, the conversations
never get anywhere near half way done before our princess interrupted us.
Challenged with the Web
While I am so thankful for the internet, and cannot imagine life without it. I find it hard to stay focused on the web. You could be sucked into a completely different subject before you realized. You know, you get intrigued to click on certain links, and next thing you know, you're being wowed by how reasonable the flights to Barcelona are. So we found that we can get more done if we do the searches on our own
and then come back and brief each other. Set a meeting time and
present the proposals and state our opinions, or vice versa.
Challenged with DIYs
Technology, new tools, and loads of information made it possible for us to perform many things ourselves without relying on a vendor. We now print our own photos on the printer at home, rather than bringing them to photo developing places. We are
expected to be able to plan our own vacations and book flights online without relying on the airline operators. All these things are time consuming, and they can be stressful to fulfill. Yet, it is the world we live in now and unless we have personal assistants, it will get done when it gets done. On the other hand, we are also control freaks, and we would probably won't feel good to let someone else handle our planning anyhow.
