As expected, Thursday night was a late night at work. After I came home, I may have had something to eat, but I'm not altogether sure. I know I took a bath, fell into bed, and slept soundly until the alarm woke me up again. Friday night, I planned to leave on time or just a little late, but three hours after my normal quitting time, I finally threw in the towel and wrote notes to my co-workers about what needed to be done to finish the projects I just couldn't. Why is it always so crazy in the days leading up to vacation time?
Tomorrow morning my friend Lisa and my sister-in-law Kathy are picking me up and we're heading out of town. Destination? Carmel-by-the-Sea.
In Carmel, we'll eat and shop, walk around, look at the sand and the ocean, and maybe run into Clint Eastwood. Probably not though. But the rest will be fun. 17 Mile Drive? Maybe. Pedicures? Maybe. Monterey Bay Aquarium? Probably. We only have a couple definite plans and the rest are possibilities. We'll come back home on Monday night.
I'll take my Kindle Fire with me and check emails, I think, but I doubt I'll write a blog post. So I'll be away for a couple days.
I was hoping to whip up a new purse/tote before I left--something cute but large enough to carry "stuff" around in. Because I've hardly been home, I compromised by making new handles for my old purse/tote--the handles were by far the most worn part; the rest will do for now. I also rummaged though some small wool and embroidery kits and gathered together what I need to work on a couple--if I have the time and inclination. I'd rather have something with me and not feel like working on it than not have anything to work on and wish I had. I have a couple quilt magazines to read too--I've been saving those!
My clothes are packed. I even have pants. In the morning, I just need to pack my make up, hair "stuff," jewelry, etc. Lisa promised to bring me something from Starbucks to get me going when she picks me up.
Now that my vacation has begun, it feels like all the late nights at work are long past. I'll be back in a couple days to tell you all about it. In the meantime, if you miss me and want to read about another adventure involving me, Lisa, and Kathy, you can click HERE. I think we're older and wiser now. Well, we're older, anyway.
