Vacation has started!!!

Musings as I sip on a Mike's Hard Lemonade...

I am officially done with work until Monday April 9th. (OK, I'll need to keep tabs on the crackberry while I'm away, but for the most part, I'm shut off).

We don't leave for Florida until Monday morning. Tonight we're having friends over for dinner and christening the new fire pit. (I've wanted one of these forever and scored a good deal at BJs last week). The Mike's Hard is a great kick-off...

The sump pump is done, so I'll spend tomorrow cleaning up (some dust snuck up into the house through the vents). Plus, I like to leave the house clean when I leave, so it's clean when I get back. I may have to go to the laundromat to do a load of laundry, because our washer and dryer are unhooked, and won't be hooked back up until after we get back.

I also need to take the kids shopping for some summer clothes. Nothing big, just a few t-shirts and shorts, and new bathing suits. I have a JC Penney gift card, so I'll start there.

Sunday we'll pack, and drop the pooch off at the kennel. I miscalculated on the trip expenses in two ways. I remembered that the dog needed to be boarded, but forgot the cost (cha ching). I also forgot the cost of the rental car, and our parking at the airport, which will be several hundred dollars. Wouldn't have changed my mind, but I'm annoyed at myself for forgetting about it. (Well, as annoyed as I can be drinking a Mike's Hard on vacation Wink).

So life is good. I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend!

    I am the same way... I much rather would return to a clean house, it leads to a much more relaxing homecoming. Plus, I want the insurance of not worrying about it while I am away! Enjoy that vacation...
