One Day Until Florida

I can't believe I'm leaving tomorrow to go on vacation.

Then again, I'm vacationing off and on all summer and this is actually trip 3... but this is the BIG one. This is the one where I'm gone for more than 3-4 days. This is the one where I have to pack for more than just a weekend. This is the one that requires lots of sunscreen and a few two-piece swimsuits. This is the one that requires a 12-hour drive. This is the one that means I have to get a GOB done at work so that things run smoothly while I'm gone ('cause you know this girl will not give work a second thought until she's back in TN). This is the one where I will have no means of modern day communication...

Ok, I take that back. I will have my cell phone. And I will use it. But other than that! No Internet!!! I'm actually kind of excited. I love the Internet. I love making blog posts and logging into Google Reader to keep up with the ones I read daily. I like getting emails from friends, and sending some back in return. I like perusing Facebook photos when I get bored. I like looking things up that I'm curious about... but yet, it's kind of nice to have the occasional week where I give all of that up and sit on the beach... reading, laughing, talking, running around, splashing in the ocean, calling people to let them hear the sounds of the ocean, soaking up the sun (not that I'll ever get a tan, but I digress...) and enjoying a worry-free life for a few days.

I've got 5 guest posts lined up for you fine readers, so do keep checking back while I'm gone and read some posts from a few of my favorite blogs. Most of them you've seen over on my blogroll, but I think you'll still appreciate how they bring their own flavor over here to marathon land.

Of course, I have yet to pack... it's just impossible for me to take care of that earlier than the day before. I had every intention to go on and do it last night since most of my evening today will be spent at a cookout. But I suppose it won't hurt if I'm up a bit late tonight taking care of getting everything together. We're leaving after work tomorrow, so I wouldn't mind being a little extra sleepy so that I can sleep for part of the drive.

I'm afraid I'll have to leave you hanging on pictures from the race this weekend. I'll get some up (and some of my trip!) when I get home...

I like to have a week "unplugged" now and then, too! It's relaxing!

Have a spectacular time!
