Jellystone

Friday, August 31st, 2007

If you need me this weekend, I won’t be around. As soon as I’m off work (in about 5 minutes), I’m headed home to finish getting my crap together, and then I’m headed out of town to the closest Jellystone park for the weekend. I’m looking forward to sitting around the campfire and playing games, and just generally having a relaxing weekend. Though my mom made it down there already, as she only worked a half day, and she said our campsite is RIGHT on the highway. So I’m disappointed that we’ll be listening to traffic all weekend long. I told her to ask about changing sites because they are probably full, but it can’t hurt to at least ASK, and they hadn’t gotten set up yet. I haven’t heard back from her yet though, so I’m assuming they said no.

Either way, my goal is to be packed up, have the kitties ready to survive the weekend alone, and be on the road by 5. Not the ideal time to be traveling on the highway, but oh well! Unless the campground has magically sprouted a wireless connection since last year, you won’t see me until Monday night, or Tuesday morning! Have a good holiday weekend!

Vegas, Baby!

Friday, August 31st, 2007

I’m all official on the trip to Vegas now, and I’m sooo excited. I have put in the request for the days off work. I’ve purchased airfare, and the most recent acquisition has been the reservation for accommodations. I spent, literally, for-freakin-ever going through all of the hotels I could find on the Strip and inputting our travel dates, and coming up with the amount that it would cost us. After inputting all of this into a spreadsheet, so we could SEE it all in one place, we crunched some numbers. We looked at everything from the Luxor, the MGM Grand to Circus Circus and the Sahara hotel. In the end, we settled on the Imperial Palace. Excellent deal, as the price per night was under $200. So if any of the rest of y’all are going to Vegas in November, choose an Imperial Palace Tower Room! So far we’ve got two rooms and 8 posties staying there, but we’re hoping to have one big hotel party… the more, the merrier!

New Uniform

Friday, August 31st, 2007

I’ll have to get a picture for you because I’ve been slacking on that, but I now have new uniforms for work. I had been hoping that the business casual attire would hold out indefinitely, but it was not meant to be. I am now wearing a white shirt, black pants, black blazer and a cross-over tie. It’s classy, let me tell you. I feel so overdressed though… like I should be offering a business opportunity to everyone I meet. Or pointing out the exits because the tie makes me feel like a flight attendant. Maybe I should dig out my black skirt, and wear that with some panty hose and black pumps. Then I’d *really* look like a flight attendant! If I think about it when I get home, I’ll snap a picture. Or one day next week. I’m just waiting for everyone to get used to the new look so I can quit feeling self-conscious and on display.

Moving to Florida

Friday, August 31st, 2007

Okay, I’m not really moving to Florida. But the overly warm weather has been cooling down here, and I know it’s only a matter of time before the really cold weather hits and I start complaining about that instead. When December hits, I’ll start threatening to look into some Miami real estate, but I won’t really do it. I’m not a big fan of extreme temperatures. My favorite time of the year is fall, when the skies are clear and blue, and the temperature is just perfectly comfortable, no insane humidity. We only got one or two really good Indian Summer days last year, and it was sooo disappointing. It seemed like we went from Summer straight to Winter, and then right back into Summer again. I want my four seasons!
