Vacation Adventure - Part I - Before my vacation

When my dear friend mentioned that I should write a blog before, during and after my vacation, I just wasn't too sure if I would have enough to write about on one particular subject. Well I am jumping in with both feet and going at it anyways. As of today, Friday, November 13, 2009, I have three working days until I am officially on vacation. I will be out of work for one whole week, AND my week runs into Thanksgiving holidays. Sooooooo, not only will I be off for five whole days, I get two extra days. Yippee....or not so yippee. I don't know yet. We will see when I post something during my vacation.

Here is where it gets stranger. I haven't taken annual leave in three years. Yes I said it, three whole years. So my co-workers are walking around here saying they don't know what they are going to do without me being here. I assure them they will be fine. I have done payroll early for the next week and I basically have everything taken care of what needs to be done in the office.....I hope. I remember I was out of the office one day a few years ago and it was crazy....people calling my house asking me where this file is and what they should do about this or that. And that was just one day. I can't even begin to imagine what it's going to be like for a whole week....but I think they can handle it. Life goes on.

Here is where it gets EVEN stranger. The peeps here at work normally do a birthday celebration like every other month or so for our birthday month peeps. Well on next Friday, the 20th, they will be doing a birthday celebration for Oct., Nov., and Dec. birthdays.....Hmmmmm, my birthday is Nov. 21 and guess what....I won't even be here for my birthday.....UNLESS.....I come to work just for the celebration.....but that would be kind of ghetto, huh? Even though they have asked me to come up here, I don't know if I want to be at work on my vacation day off.....should I? Should I not? I don't know yet. Well that's it for now. Until next time....ya'll stay out of trouble now, ya hear!!

Lovingly yours,


  1. Will there be presents at the work celebration? If so, by all means show up with birthday bells on. LOL

    You didn't share the best part! You KNOW what I'm referring to...the anxiety of excitement on the homefront....LOL

  2. Oh, I'd definitely go. The 21st is on Saturday and it's only a couple hours out of your vacation - plus you get CAKE! Go!
