Life in the Fast Lane, Again!

My life has continued in its breakneck pace as I try to take care of everyday things and get ready for my trip.  Hence the lateness of this post that really should have been up yesterday, but... life intervened, lol!  Anyway I have been spread thin and I have tried to cover all the bases before I am scheduled to leave.  Will is staying home and because he is less than adequate, shall we say, when it comes to cooking, I have had to come up with menu items that he can reheat in the oven or microwave.  So I have selected a few of his favorites like my taco mix and orange chicken to double cook on this week.  I have also provided some hot pockets, pizza and a couple of cafe steamer things as well as extra cereal, peanut butter and hot dogs.  I think he will not starve to death while I am gone so I am pretty much set for the trip except for the packing.

I was able to catch up on most everything else over the weekend which frees me up to concentrate on work and resting up for the drive to Virginia.  Now if I can just get the world to not depend on me so much this week, maybe I can get outta here on time and escape to the beach where they can't find me.  I am looking forward to a week of RNR as well as catching up with some old friends back on the east coast.  It is the first real vacation I have taken in years ('stay-cations' don't count) and I think it is about time I took one.  My mind set right now reminds me of a movie title from way too many years ago "Stop the World! I Want to Get Off!!" and I mean that figuratively of course.  However a week without real responsibilities other  than eat, sleep and have a good time will do me wonders I bet.  Then I can come back refreshed and ready to deal with my real world once again.  Let's hope it works ūüėČ!!

For your listening pleasure today I have a compilation video of The Best Classical Adagios Ever as presented by Classical Tunes with works by 7 different composers included.   I also liked the photo used in video as it fits the vacation state of mind theme I have going today.  You will find the complete play list under the video.
