Chris and I are taking next week off for a staycation. I'll still be teaching my classes, just no real work. I am so excited that I don't even care how bogged down I am at work or how much extra work was piled on me at the last minute (my punishment for daring to take time off). Because my vacation starts tonight. First off is Misti's totally 80s birthday party. We are all so giddy with excitement, we can barely stand it. Then there's concert ticket to be purchased and trick-or-treating to be done. Chris booked us a night at the Lincoln Log Cabin Inn (old Route 66 throwback) and I'm planning a haircut and massage. We also plan on doing a bunch of cleaning and cleaning out.
So, I am thankful for time today. Time with Chris. Time with friends and time for myself.
