I even went and posted this on a scrapbooking message board I frequent, and while the "vote" wasn't unanimous, the overwhelming majority of responders said "GO CAMPING".

So I will, and I'll just hope that there's a 25 year reunion. :-P

So my 20th (OMG!!!!!) High School reunion is scheduled for September 13. Thanks to the various financial issues of this past spring (both planned and unplanned), I'd sort of written off doing anything else "fun" pretty much until the end of the year. Still not sure whether I'm going to make it to Stones Rising, but I hope to.

Tickets to the reunion are just under $40. I can stay at Mom's house, and probably use her car for the evening, too. I checked JetBlue for flight costs - R/T would be about $230. Not cheap, but certainly not exorbitant either. I'd only need to take a total of 3 days off from both jobs.

Here's the kind of weird part - I haven't seen a single one of my classmates since the 10th reunion. I don't keep in touch with any of them. The only person from my high school years that I keep in touch with on a regular basis is [livejournal.com profile] genevieve2006 - we met in 7th grade and I switched schools after 9th grade. It wound up being a good move (I literally HATED people at my first high school).

But that isn't the case with where I graduated from. I got along with most people. Sure, there were people I didn't like, but that's true pretty much everywhere.

I know what you're thinking - Gee, Heather, why do you want to go and spend a whole evening with a bunch of people you haven't seen in 10 years? Honestly? I don't know. I had a good time at the 10th reunion - got to see who got skinny, who got fat, whose hair receded, who was married, who was still single. All I know is that I would really like to go.

So what's the problem? I really want to go to Stones Rising, too. Costs for that weekend will wind up being about the same, between registration fees, meal plan, and gas to get there and home. Oh, and SR is only 2 weekends prior to my reunion.

So there's the dilemma. Making sure that I only use the money I make at the store, I COULD swing both weekends. But I also still need to (continue) to pay for a certain overseas trip I just took.

Arrrgghhh.

Any advice? Input? Anyone?

Holy cats, I need a nap.

Busy weekend. I worked at the store 5.5 hours on Friday night and 12.5 hours on Saturday. Then I returned to the store yesterday afternoon for a special event/demonstration, which was fun, but it really cut into my normal Sunday routine of domestic Goddess chores.

It was worth going to the demo yesterday, though, if only for my mode of transport alone. I went with a friend (also a neighbor) – she drove. If you were in the Central Park mall area in F’burg yesterday around 5:30-6:30 pm and you encountered a black mustang convertible with the top down, 2 women and 2 kids, and the sound of Led Zeppelin and Def Leppard blasting from the stereo speakers, well, that would have been us.

Now I’m here at work (the only one on time, as usual – lots of traffic on 95 north this morning, though), struggling to stay awake. I woke up from a very odd and intense dream around midnight and it took a little while for me to go back to sleep. Guess I’ll be hitting the sack early tonight.

Not much else to report, other than to say ONLY 11 DAYS AND A WAKE-UP LEFT!!!!

It was a quiet, but fairly productive weekend. Friday night I worked the crop at the store - good sales that day, plus I managed to get out a bit earlier than usual.

Saturday )

Sunday )

In other news, More updates - refrigerators, cats, travel planning, etc. )


That's it for now, I guess. I expect to be hearing from [livejournal.com profile] genevieve2006 about her newest pending arrival (son #3), whose due date is next week, but could probably show up at any time.
