Have I mentioned that this is a 4-day work week for me? Although I’m not a permanent employee, my company is closed on Friday for Good Friday, so that means I don’t have to show up!! Woohoo!! The bad part is I don’t get paid (temp agencies stink), but I honestly could care less! I’m just so excited that I have a vacation coming up and it starts on Thursday at 5pm!!
Kevin and I will be heading down south for just over a week. The plan is to start out on Friday morning and drive it all. It’ll be a lot of driving for one day, but then we can rest and relax at Kevin’s parent’s house in Mississippi. I’m really excited for the road trip, celebrating Easter with Kevin’s family (I have great in-laws), and then spending a few days in Charleston, SC on the way home! Charleston isn’t exactly on the way, but we figured it was close enough! 🙂 I’ve always wanted to spend some time in Charleston, so what better time to do it than now!!?? We booked a beautiful hotel that was mentioned in my Southern Living magazine, so that should be nice. And some of my friends and folks at work have already given me lists of fun things to do and great restaurants! Can you tell that I’m totally psyched!
I’m also really looking forward to spending time with Kevin. We haven’t had a real vacation in quite some time and the timing honestly couldn’t be better. I just need a break from it all right now, and I love spending time with my family and hubby. Although driving 15 hours isn’t exactly my favorite thing in the world, it isn’t all that bad. Kevin and I have had some awesome conversations over the years while driving down south – he tells me all I want to know about history (and I actually understand it) and we love seeing other parts of the country. We often play the “Would I ever want to live here?” game. We’ve ruled out some states and localities and fallen in love with others.
So, my countdown to vacation begins! I’m planning to take a lot of pictures, so I’ll make sure to share when we get back!! I just wish the laundry would wash itself and the clothes would pack themselves! I have a lot to do before Friday!!
