I'm a travelin' fool

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Been trying to take mini vacations attached to weekends and chore trips, like moving Lauren into her new apartment two weeks ago. Just did another one by going back to the river with my youngest and then taking her to SeaWorld/Aquatica in San Antonio. Aquatica just added an aviary. We love interacting with the animals. The dolphins at SW were awesome. There was a baby dolphin! Mama was teaching him how to roll so we got to see their bellies a bunch of times. Soooo sweet! Petting stingrays is sooo much fun. They're very friendly and slimy! :) Of course I had to go on all the waterslides with Denise. These involve a lot of stair climbing so I got plenty of exercise. Made sure I paddled in the pools a bunch too. The little bit of time I was on the Sea World side it was super hot, even in wet clothes. We saw Shamu and the family of course and Denise got to ride the roller coasters while I waited. I have a bad neck and a bad case of chicken-itis! Came back to work on Monday to an urgent meeting to discover we are being reorganized!! I have to change departments and move offices and my job duties will change too. Probably they'll expand rather than change. Ugh! But, at least my new boss is much much better. So it's a positive change overall. Sorry I've been away so much. My zumba ladies have noticed my absence too. No vacations in August! Just work. Hope y'all are having a fun summer!

    Sounds like you have packed a lot of activity and FUN into those long weekends! I have been hoarding my vacation time and also just doing a few long weekends over the summer. We are going to Aruba for 2 weeks in October, so I need to "spend" my vacation days carefully to stretch them out. I have been to my daughter's place at the beach and also at the lake cabin in PA near my sisters.

    Glad your reorganization will have a positive impact on you and that you will have a better boss.
