This will probably be my last BLOG entry for a couple of weeks. It's crunch time - both here at work and at home. I'm busy unpacking from one trip and finalizing my packing for this week's trip. Tomorrow is my last day of work until December 12th and I dread thinking of what I'll come back to - but that's what usually happens with vacations, isn't it? The men at the office are running around like little chickens trying to make sure that they can function for 12 days without me. (They can - they just don't know it. I've spoiled them.) As for home, I'm just glad that Bob has Kelli because at least she knows how to run the dishwasher and do a load of laundry. Just glad my house is decorated for Christmas and my shopping is done - except for those designer knock-off purses I'm hoping to snag in Nassau. Thursday is my "ME" day - getting my hair done and a manicure. (The pedicure is on Friday afternoon in Florida with Katie and my sister-in-law at her favorite spa. I'm sure there will be wine involved.) Our Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful!! I love seeing my grown children with their cousins. The hit game of the day was some kind of "Guitar Hero" DVD interactive thing that our nephew Joe had. By Thanksgiving evening, a crowd had formed around the television - all ages - trying to be a rock star. None of us could hold a candle to Joe!!! Friday was a day of shopping for some, sleeping for others, and hanging out in an old neighborhood bar and reminicsing for others. Saturday night, Bob and I attended our 35th class reunion. There wasn't a great turnout, but those of us that were there had a great time sharing stories of our high school days and photos of our children and grandchildren. For me, the best part of the evening was sharing it with two of my best childhood friends - Jackie (Oakley) Koonce and Susie (Fraenkel) Cattell. Will definately have to do my best to see them again before five years goes by and another reunion. So...to all my loyal and faithful bloggers - enjoy the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I'll be thinking of you all as I'm laying on deck with a little umbrella drink in my hand. Looks like I'm getting out of town just in time....after a week of temperatures near 60 here in Northern Indiana - things fall apart on Friday with snow and a high of 32 degrees.
Cozumel forecast - sunny and 82 degrees. Bon Voyage!!!!!!!!!!!!!
