Vacation Plans

photo off of internet

Jedd and I haven’t been out of town in almost a year. We haven’t been back to Pigeon Forge in almost two years. We have decided to take a longer vacation this year. I have finally planned and booked our lodging for next week. We are leaving on Sunday, July 6, 2008. We will be visiting Pigeon Forge and The Biltmore…and many more sites. I had to book two places in two different states-aaahhhh! I have been researching and reviewing reviews on TripAdvisor.

Ten Things Tuesday

This meme is hosted by XBOX WIFE

It’s “Ten Things Tuesday”, and that means it is time to put your on your happy face, and share your ten things for which you’re thankful for today!! And if your happy face is hiding? Make your list anyway, and just see if it doesn’t make an appearance!

  1. Awoke from my dream: I am so thankful I awoke from my dream: I had Mary Kay make-up products open (at school-I never do this) and I was giving a lady a book. I told the car riders to get up (nap time) and they all hovered around the samples digging in the make-up with their fingernails-aaahhhhh! Then I woke up-thank goodness!
  2. Alarm Clocks with Snooze: I am thankful that I have an alarm clock: with a snooze (I rarely use snooze) that works. My alarm awoke me from that horrible nightmare-lol
  3. Jedd sleeps peacefully: I am thankful that Jedd was snoozing peacefully: since I hit the snooze button 2 times and the alarm went off 3 times
  4. Patch is still with me: I am soooo thankful that my 11 year old dalmatian, Patch is still with us. He has been sick on and off for 4 months. He was mis-diagnosed as having lymphoma, then correctly diagnosed as NOT having lymphoma. Please see my Dogs page for previous stories of Patch.
  5. Coffee was ready: I am so thankful that this morning of all mornings I set the coffee to auto last night-since I hit snooze 2 times. Whew!
  6. Mary Kay Order: I am thankful that my Mary Kay order arrived and I will be delivering orders this afternoon and receiving payments. Payments are a good thing!
  7. Granny: I am thankful that my Granny is doing much better and seems to be on the right track! She is 91 years old.
  8. My Aunt: I am thankful that my aunt has finally landed a job! She is a nurse and her previous job closed down the Nursing home. She utilized her time off by having knee replacement surgery, but was in a rut after recovery while trying to find a job. She found one-woohoo!
  9. Spring Break: I am thankful that Spring Break is almost here. My Spring Break starts on Friday at 3:30 p.m. BTW-I am a Kindergarten Teacher, but it is time for a break for the kiddies and me-lol!
  10. Ten Things Tuesday: I am thankful that I have met XBOX WIFE and that we are getting to know each other pretty quick-hehe! I am thankful that she has created this meme, she is doing wonderful things with it, and that I was invited to participate!
