I need some advice from all you resourceful bloggers out there! How do you get a techie husband to agree to "unplug" for a beach vacation? He thinks that relaxing at the beach or pool for a couple of days will be too boring. When I ask him for another vacation idea, he can't come up with anything.
I feel like I'm in The Twilight Zone during my last vacation conversation with him because he did AGREE to a Jersey shore vacation a few days ago. I thought that I double checked to see if he was all for this idea. Now I got the kids all pumped up and he is backing out.
We really need a little getaway because we haven't gone away since the summer of 2006. My husband was laid off for two years so we had to stay home for a couple of years. I think a relaxing couple of days at the beach would be nice. Nothing too expensive or lavish, just a chance to take a breather.
I know he wouldn't prop his laptop on his lap while sitting on a beach chair. He wouldn't want sand to invade all the precious components. A huge drive in TV screen set up on the beach would probably entice him!
If I really push him, I know he'll give in to my plan. Hopefully, he would have fun after all. So how do I get my wired up guy to want to be a beach bum for a few days? Any ideas?
