It's beginning to look a lot like summer...

…soon, the heat will start…oh, wait, already has.  Yes, folks, it was almost 80 degrees here yesterday, in December.  You would think you could not top that, but you would be wrong--supposed to have freezing rain and ice this weekend.  I suppose it is a good thing that I will be holed up reading clinical comprehensive exams all weekend.  At least if there is ice and rain, I won't feel like I am missing a road trip to do it.

 Once again, the travel plans for December are all up in the air.  A does not know what B is doing, right does not know what left is doing, and I am stuck in the middle trying to juggle and really dreading another long drive and long week and long drive back.  It is always worth it, with many good moments, but wearying, to put it mildly.
Last time, we made a stop at our Arlington friends welcoming home and I relaxed with an 8 pound dog on my legs--and could not even feel her.  I am not certain if that was because she is so light and tiny, or I just could not feel my legs any more after the week of excessive physical activity.

When is vacation?  You know, the one where you actually get to vacate, not have to go do something.

You mean there are people that take off work to not do work? Curious, I'll have to look that up. LOL

I've taken off exactly one day for vacation this year where it was a vacation. We left on a Thursday night and stayed Friday and Saturday at the beach and came home on a Sunday. All my other vacation days were spent driving somewhere or sick. (I started at a new insurance agency in January 2013 and only had 5 days vacation for the entire year with 4 sick days and 8 hours personal. It's been an experience.)

I am hoping 2014 is a better year for us all!
