2008. is over... :(

So it's back to work this afternoon. Had a great week off from the daily grind. I did not get nearly as much done with my bedroom remodel as I had planned but I enjoyed every day and don't feel like I wasted time like I have in previous vacations.
Things that I did accomplish for the remodel ... All the cutting in for the primer and most of the wall repair (plaster and lathe suck!)...and I brought the special order cabinets home and up the stairs(three large boxes taking up residence in the dining room... gotta finish this before Andrew goes crazy and slashes my throat while I sleep!)
I helped my ex move to Buffalo from Rochester on the first weekend of vacation. He landed a great job and a great apartment and a great new boyfriend... I am hoping that he can hold on to all three... luv ya E... Mean it! What I am most excited about this is that his apartment building is about two blocks from Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House. I can't wait to take a tour.
I spent the last three days and nights of vacation at Hillside with an old acquaintance that became a new friend. Rick, your hospitality is greatly appreciated and I hope to see you again sooner than later. Thank you for introducing me to your friends Scott, Ricky, David, Billy, and Frank. I had a blast hanging out with you all. It's been three years since my last visit to Hillside (with Marty K.) and had forgotten how comfortable I am there... not counting the panic attack at the campfire. Speaking of panic attacks, I also ran into Paul. I actually managed to have a conversation with him without sticking both feet into my mouth. I don't know what it is about him that turns me into a bloody idiot, but he does. The weather was perfect. No rain at all the entire weekend. The Grand National made the trip up and back with no problems... I forgot to put on the sun block and got a bit of a sunburn on the way home with the T-tops off.
And finally, spent the last few free hours before work today with my friend Sam who is 34 today. Happy Birthday Sam! I took him to lunch at the Red Robin. We requested the very bearish waiter to accompany our waitress singing Happy Birthday.
So vacation is over and I will have to say that I am rested and ready to go back to work. I hope I won't have too much reorganizing to do. Next big weekend planned is Buffalo Bear Trap in October. WOOF!
