Looking forward to vacation!!!

Our annual get together with friends and family is coming up, and I can hardly wait.  We're renting a house in the Poconos in Pennsylvania.  That will be different; we usually rent a house in Tahoe.  So we'll be taking a redeye flight from here to Philadelphia, then drive a couple of hours to get there.  It's going to probably be torture for me, but it's totally worth it!  I'm just going to take a sleeping pill when I get on the plane.  Last time I didn't do that, and I was awake all night.

I really need a break; this whole job thing has been very stressful.  I still don't know whether I will have a job when I get back.  I have found some work (very boring work right now, but better than nothing), but so far the powers that be have not stopped the lay off process.  So my last day at work is supposed to be August 6th.

Anyway, it's going to be great talking and playing with my family and friends for a week.  I bet I won't think of anything stressful the whole time.  Just a few more days to go.... Yay!

About Me

My photo
I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
