I'm off to Vegas this weekend. The timing couldn't be better. I'm tired. Burnt. Fried. And certainly not because I've been getting any sun. Sitting at my desk day after day at work and being tired because I'm lame and never get myself to bed on time has taken it's toll. I've been in this position for 3 years now and it was a grueling year. I need a vacation. I always need a vacation but right now I REALLY need a vacation. Not that my job isn't awesome or anything. I mean, who doesn't love curriculum right? Not to toot my own horn or anything because I didn't actually win but I was nominated for Outstanding Employee of the year. This week was employee appreciation week and I got gift cards to Starbucks, i tunes and Jamba Juice. I got green tea and a really pretty pink water bottle too. It was like Christmas in May. Our bosses are really nice to us, I like the laid back atmosphere and I have great co workers but I can only take so much and I need a break.
Usually when I go to Vegas it's in the 100's but it should be mostly 90's which is perfect. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is traffic and the crowded see and be seen party vibe at the pool. My sister will be driving us up there Friday morning and we're meeting one of my BFF's there. She's almost 8 months pregnant and she wants to go dancing so this should be interesting. The weird thing is that due to what I will call extenuating circumstances both of their husbands will be there. The three of us have our own room and it's still a girls trip as far as we are concerned. The men are just a side thing. And no Mj does not feel left out at all. He gets annoyingly excited when he gets the house to himself. He talks about all the things he's gonna get to do while I'm away like go see Hangover 3. Like I'm some kind of jail warden or something. Yeah, I may get on his nerves just like he does mine and there might be a little nagging on my end but for the record that man does what he wants. I guess it's just freeing to have some alone time when you co-habitate 99% of the time.
I got my club outfit ready and my bikini packed. Off to the land of pool parties and flip flops I go.
