Odds and Ends

I'm so excited because after today I will be on vacation! Not the traveling kind. Just taking some time off from work. August is a good time for vacations here, because we take the month off from doing programing and the library is relatively quiet. I traditionally try to take some time off right before my kids go back to school. Nowadays, that is really just Handsome Lad, who will be a Sophomore this year! So, anyway, I take a week off to do all the last minute school prep, take my last chances to sleep in a bit, and just relax. So 8/8-8/15 you are MINE.

I have not been super posty on here lately, so I don't guess my vacation time will interfer with blogging. Oh, that it would. haha! I do wonder....are you around Silly Rabbit? Would you like to tag someone for Saturday? I will be watching for that and for a new word :)

Please check back here tomorrow for my Choose and Defend Wednesday. It has an Olympic theme!

Before you go, please enjoy this look at my disgusting poison ivy or oak or something rash. I want you to suffer as I have. Not really...but misery do love company :-D

Eeeeewwww! I'm gross.

Thats gross.

I don't know what else to say... But that's gross.

Yikes, does that rash itch?

I'm so glad that you're on vacation now! I love the non-traveling type of vacation. I mean I wouldn't mind hopping on a plane again, but it's the idea of getting away from work and relaxing that's the whole point.

I'll have to look at my calendar to see when I can take more vacation.

Ugh, that's pretty yucky looking.

Have a great break from work.

3GK: It is. It might actually look worse today :)

Tara: It has gone through points of hurting and itching. Mostly it looks worse than it feels.
Get out that calendar, girl! Vacationing is where it's at :)

Silver: I know...yet I felt compelled to share. And thank you!

Enjoy your break, I've been on a break for the last week too. Ouch, hope your rash clears soon it does look painful.

FW: Isn't it wonderful to be away from work? Thank you...it is really starting to heal up, finally.
