Leaving On a Jet Plane
In just over 24 hours from now, I will be getting on the plane and heading off to Massachusetts for six glorious days of fun and freedom.. and freezing my ass off. I forgot it's kinda cold up there in September, and I don't really own a jacket. I may have to break down and buy one I think, although I guess I could just stay in the house the whole time. I hate wearing jackets and coats, they're so restricting and icky. I like the look of them but wearing them is a completely different story. I'm just hoping that stupid Hurricane Ivan isn't here by then, because I'm freaking out enough about having to fly after not flying for so many years, a hurricane is all I need. At least they're saying it looks like we won't get too much of it, unless the course changes a lot over the next 24 hours, so they shouldn't have to cancel my flight or anything. If it does come through, and the power goes out this time, at least I won't be here to have to deal with it. I'm really nervous about leaving the dogs here for six days with J to look after them. They are gonna freak .. I can just imagine the whining from Jazmine now. I'm gonna miss my puppies so much, I haven't been without them for that many days either. I'm pretty much finished packing except for a few last minute things, and I think I'll be able to get away with not having to check a bag..thank Gawd! I hate waiting in that dang baggage claims place. Lisa and John will be picking me up at the airport, I can't wait to see them. I really do need this vacation.. lots!! I kinda wish J could come with me, cuz I feel bad leaving him, but I really do need a vacation from him too. Six whole whine-free, bitch-free days..wheeeeeeeeee. The only bad thing is that with missing all those days from work from the storm, and then I ended up missing most of this weekend too because I had more computer problems and my coordinator wanted to be a fuckhead, so I'm gonna be completely and totally screwed this pay period. My check is gonna suck in a major way. I wont be able to pay my rent. I'll have to get payday loans, and then I'll have to pay them back. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. But I'm not gonna stress. I'm not gonna worry. It will all work out one way or the other in the end. Okay.. I'm going back to work and try to earn as much money as I can before the end of the pay period tomorrow night.
