Vacation!

Ken, Vicki and I took vacation to go to Florida for one of Vicki's conferences.  On the way we stopped to see Virginia and Stephanie.  It was good to see them and have time with them.  When we were with them we kept it low key and hung out at their house.  We grilled out, played games, and just spent time together.

Florida was hot.  I can't say I was impressed.  It was hot and muggy.  The hotel staff were rude and the manager was no help.  The conference was interesting.

We did see the ocean, we didn't make it to the Gulf.  We spent a morning at the Kennedy Space Center.  It was very interesting but a bit overpriced.

On the way back, we stopped to see the girls again which was again another low key day.  We needed it before the long drive back to Indiana.

By the time Ken and I got back to Wisconsin, we'd put over 3000 miles on the car, visited with our girls, and done some sightseeing.  One thing I am very proud of is we saved up the cash to take this trip.  None of it went on credit cards.  We came home and had a little money left over.  

Ken had to be back to work on July 1 but I had off until July 5.  I went back to work yesterday.  It was odd.  I had vacation brain by 10 am I was ready for a nap.

I got my article in to the crochet magazine.  Now I wait to see if they print it.  I got the crochet pattern in to the other crochet magazine, I have to mail off the project for pictures.  I think - maybe - I'm all caught up on emails for both home and work.  I need to finish the wedding gift I've been working on.  I have it about half done.  I'm printed two patterns I want to use so I'll work finishing the gift this week and over the weekend.  I need to pick buttons and sew them on.  Next step will be to buy a gift bag to put them in.

Unfortunately, my scooter isn't working.  Ken says there is a broken wire and he can't fix it.  This makes it impossible for me to go to work.  I can't walk the distance to get into the building.  I'm taking today and tomorrow off.  I have an appointment with DVR to see if they can help me.  If they can't, the next step will be to see about a loan to purchase the scooter I need.  Hopefully they can move quickly so I don't have to miss too much work.  I'll know more tomorrow - I hope.
