What a difference a day makes

I love my life!  I mean it.   I love my husband, my family, friends and my job.....but we all do need that unwinding.    What a vision site my BFF and I were leaving working.   We seriously looked like a chinese fire drill throwing our stuff in the car, jumping in, jumping out, doors opened, doors closed, hatch up, hatch down, taking our coats off for the driving and throwing them in the back all to beat feet to get out of Dodge and on our way.    We were not out of the parking lot and we were already squealing with laughter.    The 2 1/2 hour drive was over in no time as we chatted the ride away.  Save for the call(s) we received from work!  We found our hotel with no problem-o thanks to Peggy Sue my so named GPS.  A quick check in and a short drive and we were in the PA Expo center.   

We enjoyed our walking through the arena.   Nothing major wowed me but we did enjoy and did our best to stimulate the economy a few purchases at a time.   We did buy our return entry tickets for today as we exited.  

What a weight of stress is removed.   Although we didn't muster the energy to get in the pool or hottub and I didn't stitch a stitch.  We have both logged onto work already this morning, checked out emails, did a bit a maintenance all from the comfort of our pj's and hotel room.  Seriously, away from dishes, away from phones (kind of), away from family, away from work .....we both needed this so bad to recharge the batteries before the holiday time crunch is upon us.

I am so happy for you! I took 4 days of work and even though I stayed at home studying for an exam I feel like a new person today. It is good to take a little vacation!
