It’s that time again — time for me to take a little breather and catch up on sleep. Last week I was talking with my boss at work, and decided that maybe I should get away for a week and take some time off. I had originally booked a trip to Mexico back in November, but unfortunately due to a last minute surgery I had to have, had to cancel the trip entirely. So, I haven’t really had a proper break since July of last year. Needless to say, I’m a bit tired and worn out.

So, if all goes well, I’ll be taking the week after next off to relax. I’m not really sure what I’ll do. The Northern Voice conference is in Vancouver next weekend, and Kasia and I are heading down to check it out. After that, I think I might burn a few CDs, and hop in the car for a road trip. I’m a big fan of the Oregon coast, so I might just slowly make my way down there for a bit of camping or bed and breakfasting. I think it would be pretty sweet to kick my feet up in a hotel near the water and just plow my way through a few books. I have to be back in Chilliwack the following weekend for a house warming party and my mom’s birthday, so that leaves me with a good five days to explore. Maybe I’ll spend a day in Seattle, since I’ve never really spent any time there.

So we’ll see. I also have a $300 credit at a travel agency, so maybe I’ll apply it to a flight and get the heck of dodge for a few days. I’m not really sure.

But, I’ll make sure I blog from time to time on my vacation to let everyone know what I’m doing.

    Yay Northern Voice! Can’t wait.

    $300 and no chosen destination yet? Sounds like a reason to get inebriated and play spin the bottle with a big map. Oh, or your google ads are suggesting a Kosher Vacation in Costa Rica!

    Sounds fun. I’m sure it will be an adventure.

    How about a “Bed & Breakfast” vacation thru the Napa Valley..?

    Cool! I actually was in Costa Rica two years ago, and it was really cool.. I’m playing spin the web browser right now, and Hawaii is looking interesting.

    Okay, your google ads are tied now between Seattle and Hawaii. I think that thing is the new Magic 8 Ball. Right at the top is a link for Vacation Packages out of Winnipeg. I clicked on it (that adds what, half a cent to your beer fund?) and it’s telling me Vegas for $500. Sign. Me. Up.

    Whenever I think of Vegas, I think of the movie Leaving Las Vegas, and it scares me. Everyone says you gotta go check it out at some point, but I’m not sure my bank account could handle it.

  7. Jill says:

    Leaving Las Vegas? Never saw it, but I’ve seen almost nothing. Ignorance is bliss 🙂 I did see most of Fargo though and I still love that place 😀

    We have your Hawaii lonely planet, just let me know if we need to get it back to you! It is so miserable and rainy out right now, “anywhere sunny” sounds perfect.
