Today is my last day of work until July. Yes...JULY!!!

The next week and a half will be glorious non work filled days.

I don't have to care what time the event starts or how many people have signed up
I don't have to answer stupid email questions from weird alumni
I don't have to design postcards myself because marcom is too slow
I don't have to cringe each time my office phone rings...knowing it is someone who wants me to do (shudder) work
I dont have to think about alumni awards, homecoming, power point and staff meetings

Best of all I dont have to get the herd up early
I dont have to get them dressed and fed
I dont have to prepare meals the entire time!!!
I dont have to grocery shop at all.......okay in all honesty---this one does vex me in a way...I hope I dont miss out on any great deals while I am out of state. Yes, I am a freak

The only flaw is also a bonus...we have decided to road trip it to Naples.
We are driving.
19+ hours of driving.
I have already made the trek to Florida in my car. Twice.
And each time I swore I would never do it again. I think the trick is to have at least 5 years in between drives.
Spring break senior year - 1999 - drove to Ft. Myers Beach
Hated the drive.
Vacation, September - 2004 - drove to Tarpon Springs
Hated it less, but none the less, hated it.
And 5 years later I choose to do it again.


I hope to come home in July and be tanned, full of amazing food and without the semi-permanent kink in my right shoulder from being on the computer too much at work.
Life will be good.

Happy June!

Awesome! You're going to have a great time. Although the 19 hour car trip would have me and Jeremy pulling our hair out! But you enjoy! :-)

And, please promise me you will NOT think about coupons or any grocery deals you might be missing. Otherwise I may have to do an intervention . . .
