When I took my first vacation having my son, planning for the trip was a bigger undertaking than any other trip before.
Why? First, I needed to bring the truckload of things that I needed for my son and had to make sure I could remember it all. Then as a small business owner, I was a little nervous about being away and being "out of touch" with my clients and prospects. Finally, the clincher was that we decided to travel without laptops. GULP! (If you know my husband and I this was MAJOR. We never go anywhere without our electronics.)
So we packed ourselves up and we were all ready. Then on Mother's Day my husband and son presented me with an Amazon Kindle. Wow, just what I wanted. As I began playing with it the night before our trip, I realized, with my iPEP and my Kindle, I could free myself from worry.
