Our Spin Cycle assignment this week was to write about our summer vacation. To be honest, that just brings up unpleasant feelings for me right now. See, we were supposed to take over a week off in July when we had the celebration of life to honor my brother Monte. We were supposed to take off from July 1 to about the 9th. Turns out that due to some mitigating circumstances hubby got 2 full days…. That was IT. Needless to say I was pissed.
Turned out we didn’t even ride up to Virginia or back together. We had way too much stuff to take it all in one vehicle so I drove up on the Thursday before and hubby ended up coming up on Friday evening with my nephew who also lives in Atlanta and they drove back together too. Don’t feel bad for me. I wasn’t alone. I had a travel partner too. Who cares if he has four feet and is a little furry? And that I had to stop every couple hours for him to have a pee break and I had to hold him part of the way and he wouldn’t even take his turn driving! But we still had a good time.
Then he did take a whole week off but during that week we catered a wedding so we couldn’t go anywhere. We saved up the time (and money) so that this week when hubby was supposed to have his annual conference for work in Orlando I was supposed to fly down the last day of his conference but Irene put an end to that. Since I already wrote about it the other day I decided to write a little ditty in honor of my non-vacation. Enjoy!
Ode to Vacation
It takes lots of preparation
Some plans will sail
Some plans will fail
If you don’t consider weather
Then you better start planning better
‘Cause sometimes rains and hurricanes
Will disrupt travel on trains and airplanes
We were Florida bound before Irene
But now those plans will not be seen
At least for another month or so
Then vacationing maybe we can go
