 SNOW SNOW SNOW.

We were actually caught in a snowstorm earlier this afternoon just up around Pink Beds on the Parkway.

And it's been snowing outside the hotel all night. I've been downstairs in it three times already.

Did I mention that the foliage is still gorgeous up here... [my laptop keyboard only half-works; note the lack of exclamation and question mark]

Seriously. We can't really get too far on the Parkways, but we still have one more day here and then another in Gatlinburg.

This truly is heaven, Ridge-riding or not.

HEE!

Will be in the car in an hour and a half. Sweet relief. Vacation time is finally here!

This is yet another of those week's leading up to a vacation that's draaaaaaaaaaaaaaagging. I think part of it was this with Vix last week [still hurts; we got her ashes back yesterday in a beautiful wooden box. God bless our vet] and the fact that we have an Operations walk this week. There's been no time to slow down and relax at all. Only getting about three or four hours of sleep a night.

Booking hotel for three days in Asheville: Check
Booking hotel for one day in Gatlinburg: Check
Comfortable full-size rental car to save wear and tear on Rita [the Kia]: Check
Countdown clock now on my comp: Check

Okay, so raindrops keep falling and the job schedule change situation [that I have yet to want to explain here] is still in the works to getting evened out, but there's that to look forward to, so the world doesn't look like it's going to fall apart again in totality. This is a plus and I know know that if the money is there, we HAVE to spend one of our holidays in the mountains. Period.

So yeah, this is going to do so much to make things look brighter.

Just in time.

Big fat vacation post here later tonight. And do I mean BIG.

When you work in a madhouse, why is it that people expect you to answer with something other than "It was over too fast" when they ask how your vacation was? *snorfle*

Don't we ALL answer it that way? 

Now I just have to hold on until Fall for my next big one. Here's hoping my plans work out the way I want them to.

*crosses fingers*

MADE IT!

Starting into my official third day off of the week and we're off for a two-day trip to Orlando for a little sanity and a LONG-needed trip to see my beloved [livejournal.com profile] glitter_my_glam. Much plotty-plotness ahead. ;)

The only downside? No laptop. However, that doesn't mean we won't plan something. [livejournal.com profile] saavikam77, [livejournal.com profile] januaried, we miss you already!

Here's hoping the trip is a blast!

Annnnd why did I agree to work Friday when I'm off Saturday? After four days on the road non-stop? Because I'm STOOPID, that's why. We got in VERY late Wednesday night and slept most of yesterday. I still have to get everything back in order and catch up to the F-List. We seriously haven't even unpacked yet.

Yep, should have requested today, too.

WHY IN THE NAME OF GOD AM I STILL UP PACKING?

Because I'm a moron, that's why.

Well, that and we're still writing.

Also, because we're morons.

And I still need a shower.

*headdesk*

Next time I'm taking the day before the day before we leave off.

Maybe then we'll manage to get it all done in time.

Well, I have her cold now. YAY! Not. I'll just keep fighting it tooth and nail until we get on the plane. And try for as much sleep as I can.

Today's my last day of work before the trip. Really starting to get excited, but the cold is impeding a little of that. Plan is to leave Jacksonville around 2, make it into Orlando by 4 and before the worst of rush hour starts, check into the hotel, kidnap Alley, get dinner, hang out and watch Smallville, hang out a little more, then crash. We need to be up by 4:30 so we can have everything good to go by 6:30, when we leave for New Mexico.

We have an ereader that's wi-fi capable, so we'll likely update from the road a little. Gotta make sure the cameras are charged up because we plan to take plenty of pics. We're planning to post ATU before we head out, so we're trying to get that to [livejournal.com profile] saavikam77  ASAP. Tons of laundry need to be finished by tonight and I still need to pack the last of my stuff.

Are you sure I can't call out today? XD I just hope this post makes sense.
