Oh, ya know, work, work, the usual, until...eeee....only 60 hours or so until we're on the road to Oregon!!!! I think I'm officially driving DH crazy. LOL My suitcase is packed. I have the dog supplies gathered together. Two bags of miscellaneous stuff that I'm taking (what?! I'm allowed a bag of shoes...we're driving, not flying and I have a lot of diverse needs in two weeks)

I don't have much going on at work tomorrow but Wednesday is going to be crazy. I have to have all my work done by 11:30 and then we're going out to lunch for August birthdays and then we have a staff meeting from 1-3 and I leave at 4.

Wednesday night we're going out to dinner to celebrate our anniversary and I will not be at all surprised if DH feels the need to slip something in my drink just to bring me down from this cloud of giddy. ;)

We're going to be gone for 2 weeks. I go back to work on the 26th. DH has decided to take that day off but, in the interest of preserving a vacation day, plus having an opportunity to catch up on email and stuff and I've found that making it through one day of work allows me to ease back into the work routine. LOL

Talked to my mom last night and worked out a few more details. DH and I are taking the dogs to the beach for 2 days and my parents were going to come with us but now have decided to just make a day trip and they'll bring my brother on his day off from work. Perfect!

Thought it was two week but wasn't quite sure RoseAnn,
Does sound smart to do it that way & ease back into work

That means you'll have the beach to yourselves that second day .. very nice!
Have a fabulous time :)

I just got back from a staff meeting at work. One of the head techs asked me if I wanted to get more hours (I was originally hired for the weekends) and I said yes. I told her that I would like to go full-time if possible. So she said that she'd see what she could do and I'd have a new schedule when got to work on Saturday. I'll still be working on the weekends and hopefully a couple of days or nights during the week. So that makes me feel a lot better.

DH was happy with the news, so tonight we're going to have a celebratory dinner, probably to our favorite Chinese place.

Not any other real plans for this week as of now.

great news sisterhoney!!

and I'm not sure I'm happy about your vacation rosie, we are going to miss you here :)

I'm off Mon & Tues bc I have no sitter for the kids. I was hoping to go to the petting zoo but had a health scare on Sat and I don't want to drive that far by myself w/the kids. I'm getting blood work and looking into it. My blood pressure is dropping very, very low and it's making it hard me for to not faint. Scary when you are far from home (40 mins) and 2 very little ones!

I have been checking my work email and it is insane. I'm thinking of going in early Wed to get a head start, but I honestly don't get paid enough to do overtime...and I don't time off in lieu...so, uhm....yeah...but then I have a big meeting at 10am that I have 2 very big jobs to get done beforehand.

We have a couple's bowling night on Thurs that should be fun. I love bowling :)

Hope you get your health issues resolved as yes they can be scary,
Kind of nice you can take off work when you don't have a sitter though.
Work does sound busy & hopefully you don't have to go in early Wednesday.
Good luck on those projects that need getting done!
How fun on the couple's bowling .. will be great!
Have a great rest of the week :)
