Today is my last day at work. For this year, that is. 😛 I am now officially on vacation. Yipee! But wait, I still have to tidy up my crib, fold and stow away the laundry, wash the dishes, pack a few more things and make sure that everything is secured before I leave.
Maybe this is the one thing that I really hate doing come this time of year. All that packing and tidying and wrapping up work stuff, it is exhausting. Add to it the last minute shopping and other errands that I need to do, the only thing that I would love to do is to sleep. Sleep and dream about the crib tidying up by itself then waking up with everything in its own place, all neat and tidy. If only!
I still have about 6 hours, give or take, to finish everything. And here I am, typing away instead of starting with all the tasks I need to tick off my list. LOL! Can I have another day instead? Unfortunately, I can’t. I have a ticket reservation for my trip and rescheduling that at this time of the year would be like going through hell. Nah, that’s a bit of exaggeration. It’s more like spending probably the whole day at the terminal waiting for a bus to chance upon. And given that my ticket is for a first class ride which has limited schedules available, well, goodluck if I would be able to chance a ride on a different schedule. I might be ending up on a regular bus ride which would now probably take a good whole day on the road before I reach my destination. No, thanks!
So, I’ve got a big duffel bag full of gifts for almost everyone, my ever reliable backpack still needs to be properly packed, and I still need another bag for a few more things that I need to bring with me.
Speaking of checklists, I need to go through the list one more time to make sure I got everything covered. Given that I will be away for about 3 weeks (yep, I have quite a longer vacation this time), I need to make sure that I will have everything that the little boy and I would need.
I already brought the little boy home over the weekend so it’s just been me since Monday. It’s been really lonely without the little boy wrecking havoc to this place. But being on my own for the past few days gave me a little bit of time to get a few things done. Not a lot as I would have wanted to, but I still got a few things done. I just can’t wait to be with the little boy again, though.
Okay, enough of this blabber of mine. I need to start getting my ass off this couch and start working if I ever want to get anything done. And in a few hours, I will be on the road going home. Well, I won’t be sleeping tonight so I’ll get a few zzz’s on the road instead.
I will definitely be home for Christmas, that is for sure! 🙂
