ive just returned from another of my mini vacations. ive never done this before in my life. ive always, when i had the opportunity, prepared for some big expensive vacation. but this summer just to give myself something different to do when im not working, ive been taking small 1 or 2 day trips. i went back to atlanta yesterday with my family. well some of them. we went back to the same hotel that we stayed in about 3 weeks ago with the nice pool. but this time we stopped at a store and stocked up on beach balls, floats, water battle paddles, etc. its total relaxation....no housework, no cooking, no phone calls. nothing. i love it. we swam until the massive black cloud floated over us and the thunder rolled in. nothing to put a halt to swimming like lovely stripes of lightening approaching!!
my son had flown across country a week ago and i had to go back to the airport during the night (2am) and gather him!!! we didnt get back to sleep til 5am and then back up to checkout at 11am. so that part wasnt too relaxing.
anyway, back to work tomorrow. i still dont like my job. but it pays for mini vacations and keeps our lights on in the house lol.
