Vacation, All I Really Want Is...

....had to get away! You have no idea how badly this vacation is needed. Being in social services with the economy the way it is really shows me how our society does not care for it's own, and as a result, me, my job, my boss, the foster parents, my coworkers...have been on the dark side lately. BUT, I'm on vacation....which I have not had a full week of since December, so no rants, no lefty political soapboxes, nothing serious for this post! :)
Kirk and I drove to Mesquite, NV, last night, and stayed at a Casino there, niiiice! Then we slept in, got up and drove the rest of the route to Lakewood, CO, where my mom lives. The air is COOL, dare I say COLD? The trees are COLORFUL, and we are ready for a fun week with family and friends. Going to spend time with mom, some time with Dad & Theresa, grams n gramps, auntie glenda, and load up on family love. Hope to fit in some time with good friends Kim and Geoff, and maybe some other friends, too!
Might post during the week, might not. Have a GREAT weekend and a GOOD week, too. Hang in there everybody...something has got to give soon! I'll be back in SoCal on 10.20.08.
