Remember that feeling when you were in school - the last day before Christmas vacation, or Spring Break, or forget about the whole 3 months of Summer vacation. The anticipation of that final bell ringing couldnt get here soon enough. That's where I'm at today - 4:00 - please get here! I'm on vacation next week! I'm itching in my seat even as I speak (or type if you want to be technical!) So much to catch up on before I leave - dont even want to think how much I have to catch up on when I get back either - just want that week off!
Vacation will start tonight with plans already for the whole week. Tonight - I'll be enjoying a kid's Halloween party that Amber is throwing for her kiddo's & their friends. I'm supposed to be helping but I have a feeling I'll be involved in the fun with the kids! I always enjoy being around kids - they're need to have fun without caring about what they look like - that's all for me!
Tomorrow- the fun REALLY happens. The youth (both junior & senior high) are involved in a scavenger hunt. Last year, it was probably one of my top 10 fun things that happened - I think we laughed the entire night - sore stomachs the next day! The kid's personality really shines through on outings like this - & its such a fun time to spend with them. And bring in competition - I'm there! (My team WILL win by the way!) Last year, one of the funniest moments - we have to stop in different places that we figure out by the clues. We ended up in Corydon & I knew Lindsay was working (at McDonalds at the time) - I asked my team if we could run in there for a second. They were all for it. We shot out of the car, ran into McDonalds - my team of girls just started yelling "Where's Lindsay?" - poor Linds...she looked so confused. We made her come around to take a picture with us & as you can see by the look on her face - she wasn't quite sure what just happened. She said everyone in McDonalds laughed about it all night long. I do know for a fact, she will be working again this Saturday - now at Cracker Barrell - so if you are in Corydon Saturday night - I have a feeling you'll be seeing my team come in for our annual "Lindsay picture". It doesnt give us any extra points - but its just fun to bring others into our night of scavenger hunting!
Sunday - its our big "Making Strides for Breast Cancer" walk! I'm so anxious to walk together for such a great cause! TEAM VICTORY! And, Sunday is also mine & Ricky's 12th wedding anniversary! I'll have more to say about that later. (Maybe even a wedding photo from the big day!)
Then later in the week - the trip to Texas. I dont even want to talk about the trip though. For those who know me - I'm not a plane person & I have literally gotten sick twice just thinking about it - no joke! ..... I'm getting nauseated & dizzy now just mentioning it - I've got to change the subject!
So, I'm watching the time tick. At 4:00 - you know there is going to be at least one happy person in the world. I may even get some recycled paper & throw it in the air as I walk out the door. Truthfully, I know the week will fly & I'll be back to my little hole in the corporate world in no time - but I'm going to enjoy every minute away!
