What a bore!

Bud Yup, that’s me…I’m a bore. It’s been three whole days without school, and I am restless and bored. I guess I never really thought about what I wanted to do with my time when I was done. Now, I am trying to figure out what to do…I know that I would have killed for this time when I was super busy, but now that I have it…

Ok, so I’ve been thinking about vacations…where should I go?! My sister is leaving for Alaska in a few weeks to see the glaciers before they melt, the doggie training schools, and all the beauty of the state. Too bad the weather won’t be much different than here in Chicago. But all her planning has me in a frenzy wanting to go somewhere. Last year I was in Munich at this time, so I’m due.

So far I have discarded Mexico in July (too hot), Lake Tahoe (not ready for that), Vegas (been there already this year, and I’ll just keep going back…but I have a feeling I’ll end up back there before the end of the year), Myrtle Beach (too many kiddies), and Florida (too smokey right now). I may end up doing some little day trips around to cute little towns in Michigan, Indiana, and Tennessee. We’ll see…I’m pretty fluid right now on my plans.

And, no, I have not been knitting. The horror and shame! I’ve just not wanted to pick it up no matter how bored I’ve been. So, be prepared for less knitting in the coming days and weeks, and more posts about my adventures. This week I am taking part in the Chase Corporate Challenge, a spa day, and a day trip to the city. There is also a Knit in Bar (KIB) coming up that I will pick up the needles for…beer and knitting, what could go wrong there?!

BTW–that picture is of one of the roses I received from my parents for graduation. It broke off the bouquet and is perfect for the bud vase!

Have you tried Union Pier/New Buffalo in Michigan for a day trip? Lots of fun. Great yarn shop (Sit-n-Knit in New Buffalo) and wineries. Can’t wait to see you on 6/1 at the KIB!
