Countdown to my 4 day birthday weekend. If I put in four 10 hour days, I could make it a 5 day weekend. Maybe four 9 hour days and a then 4 hours on Friday for a 4.5 day weekend. Yeah...I think that'll work.
In any case, Brian and I will be heading to Allegan for the
. This is my birthday present. He got us a nice room overnight with a kingsize bed and a jacuzzi. And as much fiber as I want to pack into the trunk of the Miata. Fortunately, fiber packs down REALLY well.
On Friday night, we went to a company baseball game (semi-finals, we got a division trophy for first place). Afterward, we went to Little Caesar's with some of the team and our CEO. I was engaged in one conversation when I heard Brian saying that he was taking me to a "fuzz fest" this coming weekend and that I was all excited about it. CEO loudly pronounces "Debra, you are SO weird." I cracked up. Yes, that was a marvelous compliment. I love that they cannot figure me out. She started listing trips (all expensive and exotic) that would get her excited, and yet here I am looking forward to going to to a livestock festival in podunk Michigan. Sure, I'd love an exotic trip, or even a trip to a part of the US or Canada that I haven't been to yet. But that's not in the cards this year. What is, is this trip (which I have wanted for the last 2 years
). I make no excuses. If this is weird, I embrace it!
We have Monday and Tuesday off too, with my birthday at the end of this long weekend, on Tuesday. I am planning my own schedule, as it cuts down on 'issues' this way. Currently, I'm thinking that Monday and Tuesday will be days that I am going to play with my new fiber, write, and generally relax and enjoy myself. I will be taking a long vacation from 30 - September 8, which will be spent at home doing lots of home improvement tasks. So this weekend coming up is going to be completely about relaxation.
Things I am hoping are also on tap for this weekend: Sushi, Belvedere Martinis with Gorgonzola stuffed olives, birthday cake, and fresh flowers (blatant hint)
