Friday!!!!! This is my last day of work before vacation. Well not really as I am going into the office on Saturday for a few hours. But my last official day and i am so excited. I have fun doing anything with my kids but a big trip to sunny Florida? Woo hoo! I am SO ready. We have carry ons about packed and Monday I will do the banking. We are not charging anything. I am real proud of that as I have saved and scrimped for this experience for 2 full years. And in a way, the idea of renting a house really came from the blog world. I read about the trip that a bunch of adoptive moms took to Florida 2 years ago and discovered they rented gorgeous houses. Saw pictures. Drooled. Talked to a friend who had also rented a house. And took the plunge. I am hoping it helps my oldest to stay more centered during the trip. As excited as I am, and as excited as Chet is, a week of new experiences and changes in routine for him is a lot.
We have one day planned to do nothing. Just hang at the house and play in the pool and the game room and chill. It was hard for me to cross going to the place with zip lines off my list of things to do. (I am not joking!!) But there will be other times and other zip lines, and I want to do everything I can to help him be successful.
We have finished up all our piece work to turn into the local factory today so that is all set for our leave taking as well. My wife has found one 3 hour job on Saturdays that will start sometime after our return from vacation. And she has an interview on Monday the night before we leave, for a second. Tonight Rob and his girl friend will get to hang out for a few hours so that the two of them will be able to survive a week apart. And Saturday is the Kentucky Derby. Life doesn't get much better!
