We've got V on the table in today's Blogging from A to Z Challenge - and my topic:
V is for V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N
The month of April has been a doozy - what with work, trying to get back into running, my rewrites (which, by the way, I blasted through almost half my manuscript this past weekend!), blogging from A to Z, Rock the Drop, and trying to whittle down my TBR pile, to make room for more...phew! I don't know about you all, but I could really use a va-cation!
Good thing I'm headed out of town next Monday. As in 5 days. I'm outta here. Blowing this pop stand. Arrivederci! Sayonara! I bid you adieu!
And I can't wait.
But where am I going? Well, my husband and I are meeting my sister, her husband, and my niece, in a place I haven't been to, since I was 8 years old. And with next Tuesday being my b'day - it will officially have been *gasp* twenty-eight years since I've been. Yikes. That's bad, huh?
I'll give you a hint:
Yep! Disneyland - and I have to admit, I'm beyond excited!
I'll also be hanging out in LA, shopping, and going to dinner at some fabulous restaurants:
And for my b'day on Tuesday - one of my all time favs in Hollywood: Yamashiro's - I cannot wait to eat sushi here...it's simply divine.
There are several other great restaurants we have on the list, but it will all depend on how long the niece keeps us riding the coasters! Plus, to keep the husband truly happy, we'll be heading up to Six Flags on one of those days. And believe you me, I almost feel bad for anyone - be it a kid or an adult - that gets in his way. He may seriously hip-check a few peeps, as he runs from getting off the ride, to get back in line for the same ride. Oy.
Good thing I have my prescription for the Transderm patch filled and ready to go, because I, do not do well being flipped upside down at 90 miles an hour. And I vaguely remember being head-over-heels in a garbage can at Seuss Land / Universal Studios the last time we hit up a theme park...which was NOT pleasant (and although it's been a few years, The Cat in the Hat kinda creeps me out!).
Anywho - I do plan on doing a few writerly things while on my vacation. For instance, I will be driving to a bookstore first thing Tuesday morning, and buying INSURGENT. Because, well, I SIMPLY CANNOT WAIT A WHOLE WEEK UNTIL I GET HOME TO READ IT!!! I'll also be bringing my laptop / iPad down with me, and hope to write / revise some, while out at the pool.
But in the end, I mostly plan on spending the majority of the time relaxing and recharging the batteries. Because when I get back, I will be finishing those revisions!
