Burn-Out and Vacation

It’s no secret I’ve been burned out, plagued by exhaustion, struggling through work while coping with CFIDS, which I’m certain was triggered by the trauma of cancer and all the other falling apart of life as I’d known it. In other words, the collateral damage.

Relief is on its way. I’m going on a long-needed two-week vacation. Can you guess where? Here are a couple of photos.




Hint: My and son and his wife moved to this piece of Paradise a few months ago. In fact, he took these exquisite photos. When I return, I’ll post some of my own. If you click on the photos to enlarge them, the photos’ titles will reveal exactly where this is.

Note to Daniel: How about that mother-in-law apartment in the backyard? (This is an inside joke. He’ll know.)

To be continued. Until then, be good while I’m gone.


  1. I hope you have the most wonderful time! Have a rest, have a fling, have fun! xoxo

  2. I have no idea where you’re going, but come back refreshed!

    • Kim, I’m going to Hawaii. First stop is Oahu for a couple of days to see a friend. Then I’m off to Kauai, where these photos are taken. I’ve never been to Hawaii and am very excited!

  3. Eileen, I hope you’re having a wonderful and relaxing time away. The pictures look beautiful and it makes me want to book a vacation. Not sure I can do it this year though as I am still dealing with some transitions at work. If I find a cheap ticket, I might go to D.R. to visit family in Dec. Enjoy your time away!

  4. How wonderful, Eileen! I watch the HGTV show “Hawaii Life” and there have been many featured homes with a mother-in-law apartment in the backyard. Must be in the culture. More power to them, I say! Have a great time. Look forward to your photos!
