Today I was looking at the calendar and realized that, since my daughter finishes school a few days early cause she's a big sixth grader and all, we could get away for a four day weekend the end of May! And, just like that, any clouds on the horizon (and even the upcoming storm called thesis) dissipated.
So, next month, we'll get through Rena's big graduation ceremony and then get up at the crack of dawn the next day and head to a condo on the beach. There we will sun and lounge and chill like nobody's business for four days.
We're still pouring over a location for a week-long vacay in August (with the dogs), but I'm glad to have this little get away to look forward to. God knows pasty Paige could use a wee bit of sun.
