I started my vacation yesterday. So far so good—only one call on my cell phone, so far. (And some emails I had to answer.) I’m not doing anything for the rest of this week; just taking it easy. Mostly because I have to go back into work this weekend, for another all-nighter deployment. But I’m hoping that we can go away next week, for a bit of a trip. To where? Who knows? As usual, we haven’t planned anything in advance. Then again, maybe I’m getting ahead of myself; we normally plan the day before, which still leaves us lots of time.

I am hoping to get back home, to visit the folks, and Jerrilyn, and my god-daughter Alexis, whom I haven’t seen in… well, too long. I’m almost positive that I will get home—but not positive enough that I’ve called my folks, yet, to let them know that I’m coming. (Luckily, I don’t think my mom is “net savvy” enough that she actually reads my blog, so she’s probably not going to start getting the guest room ready until I actually call.)

And, since I am on vacation, I think I’ll probably be posting… well, slightly less than I usually do. I do plan to put up a post with pictures of my new car, though. Probably today, if I can get my lazy butt off the couch long enough to grab the camera.

On the other hand, I am on vacation. Maybe I should just lie here on the couch, taking a lot of naps, watching bad movies, and snacking. Wait… Maybe I should go to the grocery store to buy some snacks, first. Actually, I’ll probably stop by and buy season 10 of The Simpsons, while I’m at it.
