Vacation...

I don't think I'm meant to go on vacation.  Just like last year, everything is conspiring against us.  Last year a tree fell, air conditioner had to be replaced, car window shattered.... etc....

This past week, we had a funeral to attend, the fan for our central air failed, the Ford had to have more repair work done...  Yep... we stayed home.  The next segment of our vacation time begins this Saturday. Already there are things cropping up, threatening to absorb all of the time and/or money allotted.  There must be a very good reason... right?  Oh well, whatever the outcome, I've already made my back up plans.  I have a list of great books I've been wanting to read, movies I haven't yet watched, some new decorating ideas I've been longing to try.  Who needs a vacation anyway?!

One funny side note... our paper arrived late this morning.  Very late.  And, right on the top was this coming Sunday's comics!  That's right!  Dated July 15th!  I phoned the paper as it was a little bewildering.  They'd had a massive power outage, so didn't get all of the printing done.  The comics are done in advance, so they decided to add them to the tiny paper they were delivering today.  That made me laugh.  Then I hung up and went to read my bonus Sunday comics.  I definitely needed a bit of laughter today, but never imagined it would come "compliments" of a power cut!

I don't know why that would surprise you ... your life has been cluttered with little mishaps, no wonder you need a vacation. But, Sunday Comics, movies, books, I could live with that ... if I could count on no interruptions ... hmmmm. Nice to see you agian ... I haven't been here for awhile. Your blog is lovely as usual ...

Andrea, I don't know why either, but it still does. Thanks for always stopping by. I haven't been posting much this summer. Just so busy with life, but hope to get back in gear soon.

Donna, Lol! It's a little dream I still carry around. Maybe one day it will really happen. I have so many dream destinations. I fill that void by visiting blogs. Time for a little trip to yours!
