Wednesday morning I'll be on my way...

"Mr. Wonderful" and the kids will be home-
so this is more of a vacation than I've ever had! :)

I hope to see Kate while I'm there...even though I'll stil be a few hours from her.

My best friend (for 27 years) is coming with me- we've never done anything quite like this.
It will be a trip we will always remember.

We need to do this EVERY year!

I was going to post a blog about Congress and the funding issues over the war- but I decided against it, at least for now. :)

I hope on Thursday (lounging by the pool?) I'll have time to send some of you a long overdue email~ Until then- I'm focused on getting packed and ready to go.

I can hardly wait!!!

Bon voyage (even if you are on dry land). I don't have to tell you to bring a camera. Meeting Kate should be interesting.

Have a great time's good to vacation on your own every once in a while. I've been doing that for years in addition to family vacations. . Have a great time...are you headed to South Fl?

Bardouble29 said...

We are going to be so close, too bad we couldn't meet while we were all there! Wouldn't that be a blast. I leave tomorrow and will be there until Saturday, then we jump on a boat and sail into the sunset.

Baron Ectar said...

You forgot to mentioned that you were leaving room in that suitcase for me ...

Have a good time - relax and think of all them chores waiting for you when you get home - lol - I mean good thoughts while you are gone.

Be careful and we will miss you!

Mayden's Voyage said...

Thanks for the good wishes...and yes I'll be on dry land, until I get into the ocean! (If it's warm enough :)

Leelee- I think it so wise of you to take a trip for yourself! I am pretty sure this will not be my last! :) I'll be in Jacksonville- very north Florida, but still wonderful~
I wish I had more time to get further down into the state...
I promise- I will make the trip longer next time and get closer to Miami...or Coral Gables. Bet it is gorgeous! ;)

I'll tell Kate :) Jenny Wannabear sends her best ;)

SJ- If I do anything of the sort, I won't blog about it- but I might send you an email! :)

I would love that :) One day- we'll work it doubt our paths will cross~

Foam, maybe next year YOU can go with me! I have no plans to do anything more significant than sit around the pool (or beach) and chat...and read, and write...and have a drink or 2 :) And, of course, I'm going to eat and sleep too! :)

Whimsical- Welcome! What a fun blog you have :) I enjoyed reading at your place.

Bardouble- I need to read up on where you'll be :) I'll be in Jacksonville- it would be fun to meet up :)

I didn't mention it, but really- the whole back seat is open for you! If you had planned your trip just one week later- we would have been in Florida at the same time!
Boo- I wish it had worked out :)
Next time we might have to coordinate our schedules a little better!

Bon Voyage!!!

Libby said...

Malinda777 said...

Oh have a wonderful time. We were so enjoying our first few days of spring, then tonight...A FREAKING INCH OF SNOW!!

Enjoy the warm weather... said...

hey so glad you're getting away. just what you need, methinks.

one day i think you and i will meet face-to-face.

i still have something to mail you. urgh - so much to do, so little time! we're moving @ the end of the week (haha and i won't be here - i will be up north in whitehorse.) maybe when i come back, the bed will be set up. wouldn't that be nice?

as i go very north i will think of you, going even more south that you already are.

love to you ...

Gardener Greg said...

What an absolutly wonderful blog. I hope you have a wonderful vacation. I am planning mine soon, just me and myself all alone at home by the pool.

Gardener Greg said...

If you like flea markets, check out the one at Pecan Park. And stop by the Jax kennel club and place a few bets for me. Please :) Just remember, never bet on a white dog.

Mayden's Voyage said...

Bye Phos! :)

Thanks Libby~
I read where a kid once said that laughing was "jogging for your insides"! No doubt- my insides will be in great shape after this trip! :)

Malinda, thank you! Freak snowstorms? We hardly saw a flake this year and our friends just north of us got storm after storm.
I can hardly wait to sit by the pool with my best friend :)

Mantissa- you'll have to tell me all about Whitehorse...I've never heard of it. Travel safe~ I do think one day our paths will cross- I wish every good thing for you and yours :)

Grunt :) Thanks! T and I were talking about you this morning~
RUSH will be in Raleigh later this summer and tickets went on sale today. Hope they get somewhere closer to you- otherwise you might have to make a trip to NC!

Darling Monster- I took those last photos the day you left :) (except the one in the rock)
But you can have any that you like!
Hope you are having a STOMPING good time in all the warm sunny places you've been visiting ;)
We miss you already~

Welcome friend :) Glad to see you~
If I had a pool in my backyard- I'd never get anything done inside the house! I'd be planting flowers, pulling weeds, and splashing around in the cool blue water :)
I am thinking of a pool though...maybe one day?
Hope you have a great week- and thanks for the tip on the flea market and the white dog :)

Bone said...

The beach!! I hope that you have a safe and wonderful trip, Mayden.

foam said...

hey, it's on, mayden fair..

Seven said...

Have fun. Don't go naked.

Mayden's Voyage said...

Bone- Thanks :) We really should have a "Southern Blog Meet"- and watch 24 re-runs?

Foam- Ok...we can even go to a NC beach if that would make it easier-but truthfully- the hotels are cheaper and the water is warmer in Florida right now ;)

There are SOME people I'd go naked with ;)
But I'm not saying WHO :)

Enemy of the Republic said...

Can I come with you next year?

puerileuwaite said...

Lemme guess: you'll be near the ocean. Just watch out for the "Triangle" and Micky Mouse establishments.


kate said...
