Boring, Random, Vacationy Thoughts

We decided to fly to Denver and road trip from there.  Only time will tell if this was the best decision.

Steve and I will be checking 6 bags between the two of us (camping equipment n' stuff), I'm not bringing that many shoes.  Good thing he's silver status or we'd be paying up the wazoo for luggage.

A friend will likely be staying at our place while we're away.  For her sake, I cleaned out the refrigerator for the first time in...possibly ever.  Surprisingly, I expected worse.

Speaking of the's bare.  I'm having elbow macaroni noodles with butter and salt tonight for dinner.  And I'm not complaining.

The bathtub needs to be cleaned...TONIGHT.

I usually wait until the night before to pack, but saved myself the hair-pulling and packed Tuesday night.  Relief.

When we planned this trip we thought we only get Monday off as a work holiday.  Turns out we get tomorrow great is that.

We haven't even left on this trip and we've already discussed the next one.  Vacation is like heroine.  Not that I would know anything about that.

Flying instead of driving allows us to be back in time for a much anticipated wedding...I'm happy about that.

Books I'm bringing:  Shopaholic & Baby - Sophie Kinsella (I'm 3/4 finished), The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemmingway, An Echo in the Darkness - Francine Rivers.  I like variety...

I never seem to pack enough underwear.  Note to self:  pack more underwear.

There is always more laundry to do.  ALWAYS.

What are the odds the inconvenient road construction by my house will be completed by the time I get back?  One can dream.

I feel like I'm forgetting something really important.

I am blessed.  And grateful.

Hahaha, that's a lot of thoughts to collect! Have fun on your vacation!! I try to slowly pack but I don't. I end up packing the night before. ALWAYS.

Have fun! I don't like camping though, not my idea of relaxing! I posted about camping on my blog today.

Happy 4th!

I often wonder where all those dirty laundries are coming from...there is always more to do...I agree and it's annoying :-)

Have fun on your vacation!

Happy Friday!
