VACATION STATE OF MIND

My entire family is on vacation except for me. Martin has 8.5 weeks. Karin has 10 weeks. Anders changed his scheduled vacation time and took next week off, so he has 5 weeks off as of today. I'm still working next week (and as we speak, actually) but then I have 4 weeks off. And it's a 3-day weekend right now (as soon as I quit working, already). But still. 10...8.5...5...4...I think I'm getting the short end of the vacation stick.*

It's 9 pm and the sun is still high in the sky. It's shining right through the bedroom windows and through the deck door into my eyes. Anders is sleeping on the porch sofa. Karin is making her bedroom door squeak. Martin is building his own level on Little Big Planet 2. Tomorrow we are going to a friend's house for midsummer and we have 5 big bottles of pop and 5 liters of self-picked strawberries, 3 containers of cream, and vanilla ice cream to take with us.

We have tickets to Iceland. We have hostel rooms booked for 5 of the 7 nights. But now we need to know what to actually SEE and DO in Iceland. Have YOU been there? The only thing we're sure of, besides the Blue Lagoon, is the Black Falls. Otherwise, any and all suggestions are extremely welcome!

*Apologies to all American readers who are glaring at me right now from their 2 weeks of vacation.
