Make me jealous with your summer vacation plans!

June 29, 2009

Happy Monday, all!  I hope you had a good weekend.  I was in a WordPress blogging conference all weekend, and oddly enough, my feline roommates didn’t get one bit of housework done while I was gone!  Not one load of laundry was done, the dishwasher still needs to be unloaded and reloaded, the bills aren’t paid, and there are hordes of dust bunnies scurrying around the wood floors.  WTF did they do all weekend?  Sleep?  Lazy buggers.

So, I spent the last two days soaking up knowledge from folks who are lots smarter than me, and very kind and generous to spend their weekend sharing what they know.  LilSis was in Chicago with the family while I was hibernating indoors with brilliant minds, and now next weekend is already July 4th.  I’m wondering…what did you do this weekend?  Do you have big plans for the summer?  Has the economy changed your plans?

I don’t have my dream trips planned for Italy or Hawaii, although I wish I did, so I’d love to live vicariously through you.  Please share your fabulous plans with me!  I know (or I think I know) that all the regular school years have ended, so your summer must be getting into full swing.

BigSis wants to know!  What are you up to this summer?  Turn me green with envy!

Summer vacation with family

June 24, 2009

After yesterday’s post by BigSis, today I’m finding it hard to talk about eyeshadow, a new skin care product, a new recipe, or even a funny ‘kitty’ photo. And, I’m certainly not going to complain about gaining five (or so) pounds from not being able to exercise. In the big scheme of things, none of that really matters.

The most important thing to me is spending as much time as possible with family and close friends. Isn’t that really what it’s all about? I’m on vacation in Chicago right now visiting the kids, grandkids, and all of SirHoney’s family.

We’ve already had so much fun since we’ve been here. We had the entire extended family together for Father’s Day, spent a great day at the lake on Monday and then a full day at the pool with Meem and all three little guys yesterday.

And, we still have lots of fun stuff planned for the next several days. We’re going to head downtown on Thursday, we have a big family reunion and Bo’s and BigGuy’s birthdays to celebrate on Saturday, a cookout on Sunday, and will head back to California on Monday.

I hope every one’s Summer is off to a great start and that you’re able to spend some time with family over your Summer vacation!
