25 Days off in a Row

I'm currently enjoying day 6 of my 25 days off work in a row.  Busy week getting the house ready for our vacation and preparing Kia for her last year of Junior High.  Gasp.  Grade 9!  Eegad...only 4 more years of public school await her.

Russ and I both turn 40 this summer.  Correction, I have already turned 40, but Russ is hot on my heals and next week will join me.  We decided to do something fun to mark this milestone and have been preparing for "40 in Florida" for over a year.  It's hard to believe that it's only a few short days away.  It's a simple objective really...go away, act like children, enjoy every minute.  The more prepared I get the more excitement I feel!  Hopefully by the end of day tomorrow I will be positively giddy, as my check list is complete.

Life is so precious, I am grateful for every breathe.  I feel beyond grateful that we can have a fun family vacation like this...it's been a long time in the making.
