Sorry folks I am on vacation

What are some pre-vacation rituals you do before your vacation?
Do you find yourself in vacation mode and suddenly become more unproductive then normal? Do you stare at your work clock counting the minute until you get to fly the coop? Do you wonder what time you are going to fit in a pedicure? Do you buy a new beach tote for no reason other then it is so darn cute? While discussing inventory numbers does your mind shift to whether or not you packed your son's vitamins? I think I suffer if you answer "yes" to many of these questions then like me, you suffer from vacationitis. I am suffering so bad my brain has checked out yesterday about 4:00. The crazy part is I have so much I need to accomplish, including finishing-up projects here at work. Cooking for a cook-out tomorrow following my son's dance recital. All of that is taking a backseat to having my bushy eyebrows waxed and a nice pedicure! I found a cure for is called a boat drink and a lounge chair on the ocean.
Besides packing what are some of your rituals?
I am loading my XM player with some of my favorite songs.
Listening to Radio Margaritaville except when they try to sneak some country music in on me.. you can't fool me..Kenny C is not island music XM!!
Obviously getting my toes done
Buying a new pair of flip flops
Stock-up on all my trash magazines so I can find out the truth on Jon &Kate from Us weekly..ha ha.
Inevitably I will forget something, typically it is items such as undergarments (guilty TWICE), razor or deodorant. So basically I am the hairy sleazy girl who sexy is that? Let me know if you ever want me to join you on a trip!

You know what the only thing better then vacation? Planning your next vacation?

Unfortunately my next post will be about beach depression and how fat I am...How depressing!

Be back the 27th my dear friends!

Take a Number

Ever feel like the world is totally against you? Have you had one of those days that one thing after another goes wrong. The type of day where you wish you could just head back to bed and hibernate until the next day. You would think those type of days would sincerely make you appreciate the good days, but they don't!
Yesterday was one of those fun days! I woke-up yesterday feeling absolutely horrible. Thanks to the lovely Ohio pollen levels I could barely breath and my stomach was so upset I could barely function. I dreaded my drive with the "idiot patrol" that was what I term my fellow drivers that share my daily commute. I figured a quick stop to McDonalds would either further punish my stomach or make the misery end. I was short exact change by one stinking penny. Why is it you find pennies all over the place but not when you need them. So bought my orange drink and yogurt parfait and headed to work late..well after fielding various phone calls from upset co-workers and vendors I figured that the day could be changed to my day of HELL. In addition of fun, I was able to pick-up my bridesmaid dress that cost me a lovely $84 to get adjusted. On top of that I wonder what other insults to endure from the alteration person. Last week she told me that I had a bootie...lovely, thanks lady! I also had to return a package that cost me $16 to ship via ground..are you kidding me?! It wasn't that heavy!! I pick-up my son from school and he tells me he doesn't want to go and I am no his friend...again? My typically response is "fine you can't come to my birthday party-trust me, I can dumb myself down to a 3-year-old level without any problems you know who you are messing with"? Today I said.."take a number" and he yells out "3". Who is the Witty one now? One way to turn my frown upside down!

Thanks to post reminder of a dear friend of mine I am going to try to post a little more often then I have before..
