Well, I’m off to Denver soon. Maybe….I’m not sure….the coin is in the air on this one folks! I get to decide whether I want to go by myself for the weekend down south to my “second home”, Denver, or spend the whole vacation home with the fam. I may not get that choice too much longer, for if I keep thinking about it, I’ll end up getting booted out the door telling me to have fun anyhow.
Not that this would be a bad thing, mind you…..but it’s that niggling little guilt feeling, ya know. The one that says “Why should I have all the fun, and leave them home?”..yeah…that one. I have no idea how it’s going to turn out, but it’ll be one of two ways, that’s for sure. My nights are, for the most part, quiet and unevenful – and I’m at WORK during those times. It’s nice that I have a career that I truly enjoy, and still be able to enjoy it after payday. I spent the whole year we were living in CA working 2 jobs, and always being tired out of my mind by the time I get home. Yeah, there were the respites, like going to see Nina Hagen, visiting Disneyland several times over that year, and of course seeing the ocean. The rest of the year seemed to go by in a blur though – work does that to you.
Makes me think I really do need this vacation……..badly. I think it’s true what they say about if you don’t take holidays once in a while, you go nuts. But…….they say that about me anyhow. I saw the cover for the unrated DVD of “Saw” at Wal-Mart, and thought it funny that such a “family” store would carry such gruesome violence…unrated yet! Hypocrites….sacrifice values for the almighty dollar. Sam Walton would be spinning in his grave so fast, he’d drill to China a few times over.
I guess I’ll find out how I’ll be spending my vacation soon enough…that’s for sure.
