Escape from the real world?

January is just around the corner.
I have to admit not really my favourite time of the year.
Christmas has come and gone. The days, although longer get colder for some reason, and 31 days in January just seems so long.

January I know should be a happy time. Both my daughters were born in January. However, one came two months early and should have come in March. For this reason, January to me became a time of desolation. Firstly because I spent so much time in hospital with my pregnancy sand the secondly because it also the month my father passed, I don’t want to dwell on that however in this blog.

So this brings me to my title comment. escaping reality My husband wants to go on vacation in January. I know what you are thinking…and the problem is? Well the problem is, while I love travelling and warm tropical weather, the question is am I just escaping reality? The reality that I hate January and it’s cold.

It almost seems fake to check out and pretend January is not here. If I had my way I would hide until February 1st. February I don’t mind because there are only 28 days and a holiday called valentines, so not a bad month. But back to my dilemma; should I escape reality and go to the sun and the sand with my husband?

Well according to him the answer will be yes. So with a click of the mouse and some research the deed is done. Stand by for the destination and review. So I will be escaping reality for 7 days. Hey that means this year January will only be 24 days LONG. Ha not bad, shorter than February. There is hope for me yet.

So as we say goodbye to 2013, and welcome the hopes and dreams of 2014. I wish you all an escape every once and awhile from reality. Happy New year.
