    OMG we are actually going on vacation!

    Posted by K on October 27, 2008

    I just booked a hotel and made reservations for a ghost tour for Halloween night! 😀  We are going to a very old, very haunted lovely city.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I took a vacation.  It has been a long time!  The good news is, gas is cheap(er) we filled up yesterday for $2.13 a gallon.  My hubby and I had made a deal that once gas got to $2.50 we would take a vacation.  We’ve saved up money just for the occassion.  It’s only a couple of days away, but we’re getting out of town (finally!)

    John Cleese won’t carry my bags

    Posted by K on July 9, 2008

    We ordered a refurbed tomtom from overstock and as soon as we opened it, one of the first things we did was add the celebrity voices.  We currently have John Cleese, Eddie Izzard and The Daleks on there 🙂 (yeah you caught me, I love a British accent)  John Cleese is currently our guide, just because he is freaking awesome and funny.  We’ve not tried to get lost with it, but it has navigated us to my work and to the in-laws safely.  Maybe this weekend we will purposely get lost and see if it can help out.

    Memorial day

    Posted by K on May 22, 2008

    Monday is Memorial Day so we are throwing common sense to the wind and going out of town.  Gas prices are now $3.85 here.  My dilemma is I NEED to get away from the everyday.  I’m about to crack!  Plus this weekend is my family reunion in North Carolina.  So we are going to drive there (and spend loads on gas I’m sure) and camp to make up for the cost of gas.  If we couldn’t camp we probably wouldn’t be going.  Even the cheap hotels are still $200 for the weekend.  Most of my family isn’t going this year for one reason or another, so that was another consideration.  Each year we cleanup and put flowers on the graves of my mother’s family that is buried up there (there is probably 35-40 total graves).  Someone needs to do this, and I won’t let it go undone.  Hopefully it will be the chance to relax that we all need and a chance to spend some quality time with my family.  Also it’s our last trip with Ray before she goes home June 6th.
