I Need A Vacation

Well, the 4th of July has come and gone. I didn’t really do anything much. I was originally planning to work on my book yesterday, but I was pretty tired when I got home from work so I spent the whole day in bed. Plus it was raining out when I got up and when I left for work. Good thing I had that raincoat that I got at Herkimer Garbage Day.

Tonight is my last night of work before I go on vacation from Wally World for nine whole days. Of course I still have to go in and get my check and I may have to get some food during that weekend, but other than that, I don’t really intend to go there during the whole week that I am off. I am probably not really going to do too much that day, except for going to HCCC for my Internetting, and then to the Historical Society to do some much-needed work on my book. I am pretty close to the point where I can actually send something in to a publisher through the ‘Net. I just have a couple more things that I need to do first.

The main reason that I decided on July 8-12 to take my vacation was because of the fact that July 11 is the day that Grace Brown died. I guess in a way, I still feel guilty for not being there for her when it counted because of a remodelling thing that was going on at Wally World that summer. Because of that, I missed a memorial for her up at Big Moose Lake on that date because it was the 100th anniversary of her death. Even though I still can’t go up there this year, mainly because of money reasons, I am still going to take that week off. And by the way, the book I am writing is about her.

I guess I should now backtrack and let you know what had been going on pre-4th. Last weekend, my sister and her boyfriend went out on a rock-collecting trip to Connecticut so I had to take care of the dogs again. They came back late Sunday night, but by then I was already at work. Then on Monday night, the big day arrived. I saw “Transformers” at the Valley Cinema in Little Falls. It was really awesome. I got there about eighty minutes before the movie began so I could beat the crowds there and that turned out to be excellent planning on my part. I am now really glad that I knew about this weeks in advance so I could take a personal day off from work to go see it.

Of course on the 3rd, they had the fireworks display at HCCC. Of course I couldn’t see it because that was when I had to go back to work. Then when I came back, they thought that I had actually started my vacation when I only took a personal day. No way. The vacation actually starts the minute I get out of work tomorrow morning. I can’t wait.
