Vacation's Over dang.

Well, the jig is up.
Flying out later this afternoon to lax.
Thank GOD I love everybody on the crew!
That always makes it easier.
But still,
It's always sad when vacation is over.
Esp since management took half our vacation time away after 9/11 to save money & stay out of bankruptcy. 
I should have had 4 weeks in Dec, but got only 2 weeks. 
Plus Dec is not such a vacation because of all the holiday angst. 
Still I am grateful for the break. 
I needed it!

New Year's Eve was okay.  Went to the church watch & listened to a lame visiting pastor.  It just reiterated to me that church is not great.  I need a gay church but go to that one because it is the one Doris grew up in & she loves it. 

Afterwards went to the Scotchwood Diner with Sis & Michelle for a bite.  When we finally got home we were too tired to go to the party down the street.  It was fine.  I was just SO HAPPY that we were finally home alone again, as we had dropped her moocher son off with her other son so he could help fix cars & make money.  It was glorious to have the house back to ourselves! 

In fact we spent the whole next day (Jan 1)  in BED (yeah, Happy New Year!!!) sleeping on & off until 600PM!!!  Slept the whole day away & it was so great!  Afterward we went to McDonalds & back home to bed!  Ha!  Loved it!

So yesterday Jan 2, went to Curves, took down the outside Xmas lights (always sad to do) (it was freezing, too!), made a Dr's appoint for next fri & went to Weight Watchers.  (Lost 2.6 lbs, yea!) 
At least I felt I accomplished something today.  Got my ass out of bed!  ha!

Doris had cooked a fabulous chicken,sweet potato, collard greens, wild rice & biscuit dinner & I chowed down when I got home!
Oh well....  Delicious!

Okay.  Gotta go gussie up for the job.  It's over.  Got a LOT of extra trip overtime scheduled for this month.  Will write again when I have time.  It was good to be able to write so often in Dec.  Happy January y'all.

Vacation is a double edged sword, isn't it? Going back is SO hard! I took a week off last year, and that is when Brittany showed up! Vacations are scary...how I'd love a permanent one!

Hang in there toots!!! Be careful out there!
