In five days I will officially be on vacation for a week and I am so ready for it. I haven’t had a real vacation since July of last year and now have accumulated 6 weeks of vacation time that is itching to be used. So it is time! We decided it would be nice to have an “at home” vacation. So we plan to spend some time at Dog Woods for our first camping trip there. We’re also planning on hitting the zoo one day for some photography and maybe another small day trip. But mostly we want to have a week to loaf around. I’m taking off the entire week, including both weekends, from both of my jobs so that it will be a true vacation.

Technically my freedom begins at 11:45am on Friday, but since the Kentucky state fair begins this week that means Friday night I’ll be working our KFB booth that evening. That earns me another day off so it’s all good. Plus I get a few hours before to enjoy the fair myself. I always buy something for myself each year at the fair and this year I’m looking for a novelty plate for the front of my truck, though I’m not sure exactly what yet.

So…let the vacation count down begin!
