TELL ME ABOUT IT!! 250 long days till we leave in Feb!

But we starting packing list, planing excursions. Also we are shopping for clothes and summer items that may be hard to find come jan/feb. Plus there are 9 of us traveling, so working out the flight situations keeps things moving. Looking for luggage solutions, all that fun stuff!

That's true, I started planning this trip 5 months ago, research and pricing and calling and family cruise meetings, we only recently booked!

Planning is HALF the FUN!

I have 85 days to go and I really wish it was tomorrow instead. Work has been hellish lately. My co-worker decided to retire and I got a temp to help until someone is hired, but in the meantime I still have to do 75% of the work because it takes to long to pick up on what I do. To top it off I am doing relieving work for someone else and a MAJOR issue/project has come up and my pressence one full day a week is expected at the site until all is finished, which could be six weeks. I was informed a replacement has been hired, so now not only do I have to keep an eye on a temp, break a new person in to the job, spend time elsewhere, AND do the usual work I do....OY VEY! I like my job, but the amount of work I am expected to do should be done by three people not two. I'm gonna have fun getting my new co-worker broken in and up to speed in under 80 days when it took me over 4 months to figure it all out!!!!

I'm so going to need that holiday in September, oh yes.....I will even be tempted to get wasted to burn the tension/stress off!!!

A drug induced coma will speed up time..
Better yet book a short 3 or 4 day cruise to fill the void and get you more amped!
