The Countdown is On

To say that the last few weeks have been crazy insane would be an understatement. Work is bonkers bonkers bonkers. I won't bore you with the details but between the end of the semester with my own classes and wrapping up grading and putting on commencement for the institution where I work, I've been hopping. My friend Karina and I planned way back in November that we were going to go on a cruise when she was finished with her doctoral course work and when I finished the school year. We arrive in Miami on Sunday and the boat leaves on Monday! The timing could not be better. I've never been on a cruise and I'm really looking forward to a week sailing around the Bahamas and enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. And utter and complete relaxation. I am turning off my work email on my iphone and not looking at it until I get back. I haven't been on vacation like this in so long. I am giddy. I've taken vacation time and gone home to visit, but those trips aren't incredibly relaxing. I spend most of the time trying to get to see as many people as possible that there's little downtime. It's action packed from the get go when I'm home in Rhode Island. I am so looking forward to a week where I don't have to respond to anyone or anything. Sigh.
