Within 2 hrs, we will be on our way for a family vacation. WooHoo! A weird coincindence happened to me as I left work yesterday. I was a in meeting until 2:30 and went back to my desk. We have cards to get through locked doors and my desk is in the office area of the men's locked unit - 2 doors to go through. I locked up my desk, took my purse from the employee break room, and headed out. Yes! I am all caught up at work FINALLY! and feel so good about leaving knowing there is not undone work left behind. I get to the main doors of the unit and my card will not work! What? So, I head back to my desk and the card wouldn't work to let me in the office corridor either! But I am on vacation, I want out! I walked to the unit office and saw a staff member working on the card machine. I asked her to let me out. I thought it was a joke because I put a piece of paper up on my mailbox at the recepition area stating "closed" on it hoping that will keep away work. However, no one seemed to be a culprit so it was just a coincidence. The kids and I are pretty much packed. husband told me last night that he has not started to pack yet! I told him we would be stopping along the way (gas this morning and to get juice and donuts for breakfast and probably a fast food drive through for lunch) and need to leave EARLY. I get so frustrated when he is the one to ALWAYS hold us up. All he does is pack and turn off the water (another of my pet peeves). So, I best get going. Gotta dress and get difficult child's and my stuff in the van (plus all the extras that everyone will want and think my responsibility such as camera, snacks, jackets, bug spray, ect. ect. - you all know what I mean - but I best not be the one to hold us up! It will be a great time - I just need to get past the pre-leaving stress. I don't know if I will have access to computer until Wednesday night. Everyone have a great day and find a way to make your kids laugh.
