Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Let the plane rides begin.

I'm waking up at 4am tomorrow so I can be in the air by 6. After going over the clouds and through the rain, I'll be landing into sunny, warm and humid Florida. Ahhh, Florida, where I don't have to work or wake up early (even though I will). Where I can lay out for hours, then go inside because I actually get sick of the sun. Where I can feel the sand in my hair and look out into the water, but not actually go in it because didn't you know there are SHARKS in there! Where I can go to one of my favorite places in the entire world - Robert is Here - and get the best smoothie and stock up on their homemade honey and pet their animals. Where I can go to the Everglades and be a stone's throw away (if not closer) to hundreds of alligators. Where I can see my sister when she's not USING ALL CAPS ON EMAIL and we can just be "normal" with eachother. Where I can hold my mom's hand and sneak a cigarette at night. Where I can cook for her and pet her cats and help her figure out money. Where I can introduce her to the library. Where I can see my last remaining high school friend and my other dear friend, coming all the way from Boston via Spain, just to lay out and bullshit and most likely talk about sex. Where I can read 2 books in a week and get my fill of People magazine. Where I can lay in bed with my mom and do the crossword puzzle. Where either my sister or mom actually beat me in a game of Scrabble or Backgammon (I can still school their asses in Gin though). Where I fear for just a second that I could bump into my dad. Where I get to see my nephew, ALL GROWN UP, before he makes the huge leap to adulthood/college. Where I'll go for a run IN SHORTS. Where I'll revert back to Florida's temperatures and find myself wearing a winter coat in the 65 degree nights, by day 3. Where I'll spend Christmas Eve eating meatloaf and raw mashed potatoes - and that will be okay. Where, on at least one night, I'll have spaghetti with ketchup. Where I'll avoid the internet as much as humanly possible, unless it's to check Ravelry or farming opportunities or movie times. Where I'll watch so much TV that I'll turn into an Orange County Housewife and start screaming at my mom for not getting plastic surgery with me. Where I'll do nothing, but get a tan, wander the streets filled with people over 60 and hopefully get a few laughs in with family and friends.

Till next year gang. I love you all.
