Ready....but not for the holidays

The tree is undecorated.  Presents still need to be bought.  Nothing has been baked. Christmas cards?  A vague idea is formulating in my brain but no action has been taken yet.  Dust bunnies seriously outnumber the people in the house.  But all the same, I am ready!

I have paid for my January Escape.  After a convoluted process, I finally got reservations so I can shower and take a nap that weekend.  Now all I have to do is prepare my stuff and make sure I have clean laundry.  No problem, I can do that all on the morning of the event.  That is my normal M.O.!

While this is one of my favorite events of the year, there is something else coming up that is even better.  We have our plane tickets purchased, hotel room reserved and our portion of the house rental paid in full for our tropical vacation coming up in a couple of months!  I can't wait to kiss this lousy winter weather goodbye for a week!  After a week of constant ice, snow, sleet, and freezing rain, I am ready for a break.  Not to mention taking an entire week off work will do wonders for my soul!

Maybe the holiday stuff will get done, maybe not.  But it doesn't matter because I have a lot to look forward to in the new year!

Thanks for the reminder. I need to book a room too for Escape.

Jealous of your winter getaway, but way, way, way anxious for Crop Camp. Even more than usual.

MM - Glad to hear today that you got your room too!

NV - Sorry to rub in the vacation, but I can't wait!

Ladies - I can't wait for Crop Camp either! K and I were talking about how unprepared we are but we still have time right?
