Summer break

I love it that I work for a guitar school. As after work today started my summer break. The coolest part of this break is that for the first time hubby will have the exact time off too!  Can I just say Woohoo!!!!

So what are we going to do for nine days????? Well we are going on a road trip, starting tomorrow and we will be back in nine days. We are going with our friends A and E and Bear of course. We will be heading to the great Northwest to enjoy much cooler temperatures! I am actually going to pack hoodies and some of the mountain passes we are going over will have snow!!!  I am going to post hopefully more on here than on Facebook.  I am going to try to use my blog as my journal, we will see how that goes.  

It is 11:49 on Friday night, P is doing laundry of the clothes that we bought this evening as we realized we were both very low on t-shirts and shorts.  I know we are weird that we head to temps of 50's and 60's and we pack shorts but those who hang out at our house know this is quite normal for us.  We haven't even begun to pack, we still really don't know much about the trip as most of the planning will happen tomorrow when we see A and E who have been away on a family reunion.  I am not worried about the clothes and other stuff for the trip, I am worried about what knitting projects to take with me.  I have one shawl on the needles, but what else to take? I don't want to have to buy yarn on my trip just to have something on the needles, so I must plan ahead with yarn, needles and patterns. I guess I should think about Christmas gifts.  It will take two days of traveling to get where we are going and then two days back plus whatever little trips we take.  We hope to get to see Mr P's sister and family if we plan it right.  

Also I am worried that I don't have good reading material to take with me even though I have about 5 books to take including the one for book club.  I really should try to finish this month's book for book club as I don't have a very good record and I want to be able to go to book club next month with the knowledge that I completed the task. (I know it is my little waffle square, ie. my thing to check off my list).

I have to say that I am super excited about going on an actual vacation, more than just camping in the woods in Utah and for so many days. P and I haven't done this long of a trip, the closest we have done is when we went to Kauai in 2001.  I should be doing research on gluten free restaurants etc for the trip but I just can't get myself motivated to do it, maybe it is because now I have a smart phone and know I can do it when I get there instead of having 500 print outs, maps, etc.  Plus I can find the closest yarn shops on my phone too.  

Well let the vacation begin, or at least let summer break begin.  So off to bed to get things started.
