woo hoo – vacation! So many plans…   Leave a comment

I am off until Monday the 26! That is 10 days.  Heavenly! A has to work tomorrow, so I will do some chores while she is suffering through the longest day of work – the one before vacation.  🙂

Even though I am on vacation, of course I have work to do – budgets are due, and mine apparently needs tweaking.  Sigh. I hope that will be quick, though.

Then I have to get the snow tires on A’s car, and do some errands in Ellsworth before heading to Bangor to sister-in-law L’s house for supper.  Following that, we all head over to Orono for the great niece’s school play, Spamelot. 

Tomorrow I head to Owls Head to see Mom and go to a craft fair.  I might sneak into the yarn store in Rockland while I am there. Don’t tell A!

I think we have no plans for Sunday!  Maybe it will be a true day of rest. More likely, we will do housework.

Monday we rent a pickup truck to do all sorts of fun things – take some furniture to the ReStore, go to the dump, get wood for A’s next project (it didn’t take her long to move on to the next one – redoing her big storage closet) and who knows what else we will think of to do while we have the wheels! A does have a doctor appointment, so we will spend some time in Ellsworth that day, too.

Tuesday I am home during the day, but have to leave in the afternoon to pick up niece B at college and head to CT.  She gets out of class at 5, so we will be driving all night, I guess.  I’ll drop her at home, then stay the night in a hotel, in the morning, go see my grandmother and dad, and then head back up here in the worst traffic we ever get, so that I am home in time for Thanksgiving.  We are going to brother N’s, along with most of the family for the big feast – it should be lots of fun.  We will also be celebrating all the November birthdays, since the twins will be home from college to join us.

Friday is another day with no plans, can you believe – 2 of these in one week?

Saturday is the family carol sing at Mom’s – a few weeks early this year so that ALL the cousins can be there – pretty exciting, been a long time since we had all 9 of us and our parents, spouses and kids together for this tradition.

Sunday is our Thanksgiving celebration with A’s family – aren’t they sweet to put it off so that we could join them? I was really disappointed when my family decided not to have the feast at our house, as we have done it for several years, and invite both families, saving lots of scheduling angst. But A’s family was very understanding, and so we will gather on Sunday.

That’s it.  Ten days all gone.  All planned out, but with plenty of time to work on projects and visit family.  And maybe, just maybe, I will get a start on those holiday cards, because I haven’t done it yet.  And I know at least one friend will have hers in the mail on Friday.  I hope I will have made one by then!
