Going on Vacation...nanananana!!!!!
Reply with quote

In less than 12 hours, we are leaving for the hills!!!!!!! It is our two year anniversary today (4/6) and we have had such a rough couple months that we are getting out of dodge! We are going to a "getaway" cabin resort about an hour away. I am so stoked and excited!!! They are in their March-April special season (50%off) and the owner gave us another 10% off for booking 3 nights! I can not wait to leave tomorrow, but at the same time I am nervous about leaving, kwim? Rae will be with my mom, and Eli with Jon, so they will be taken care of well, but It's the mommy in me that is worrying about the "what if's".

A couple other great things, the owner is letting us arrive FIVE hours early (noon instead of 6pm) and leave late (7pm instead of 11am)!!! Thank goodness for a slow week I guess!!!

Casey also got a "promotion" of sorts at work after an excellent annual review, he's now working in 2 departments. This is great in 3 ways, lol. More hours, better shifts, and a GREAT raise!!!!!!!! He got the highest honor on his review and they asked him if he would like to work in the delivery dept also. He is one of the very few that gets to work 2 depts. May not seem great to some, but when hours are low in one dept they may not be in another...so he's basically guaranteed hours somewhere!!!!

One more great thing, his bonus is covering our entire vacation!!!!!!!!! Happy Anniversary to us! :

I don't think I need to tell you to have fun and relax. Very Happy It's about time you are able to have some "U and hubby" time. Can't wait to hear how much fun and relaxation you had. Enjoy !!

And we're home. UGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Rae's not feeling real well, and my mom is not comfortable giving her her shot so, we decided to come back tonight instead of Friday. I think if she would have been feeling better she would have been ok to give it to her but she's not, so I just couldn't handle hearing her cry on the phone.

Casey didn't like the place we were at anyways, he got too spoiled at the place we went last year. I tried to 'downgrade' a little, no phone, and small (13 inch!!) tv, hoping that he wouldn't want to watch it!!!!!!!! NOPE, he still did. Needless to say, he didn't like the bed, or the tv, or anything really, and I just wanted to come home. So, he got his way and we came home.

Now I guess I can come back to my misery here!

I've been following this on Facebook, and that sucks! I was so glad when DH outgrew expecting a vacation location to be like a real life video game. It's so much easier to relax. I sure don't want to do anything when I go away - I do too much here!
