The Winter of Our Discontent

Alternate title:  Two Weeks Until Vacation!  WOOT!

My fellow Arctic Dwellers and I decided waaaaay back in December that we were already disgusted with winter.  Why, hello -18 degrees, kiss my butt!.  Frozen water bottle on the floor of my bedroom?  I smite thee with my burning burning hate! 

Anyway.  It was agreed upon by all (all three of us) that we need to plan a vacation to somewhere warm sometime in the late winter.  We had three main objectives in mind in our planning:

1.  We need to go somewhere we've never been.

2.  We need to beat the Spring Break craziness.  

3.  Whatever we do, we'll miss two fricken' weeks of Winter here, thereby putting us that much closer to lovely, lovely Springtime.  Oh, happy days!

The general plan is to head south through New Mexico to Santa Fe, continuing down to Roswell and eventually Carlsbad.  My husband says that the Carlsbad Caverns are kinda nifty, so we'll stop and tour them and then turn east towards Texas.  I think we're going to spend some time in San Antonio, because there's lots to see and do there, and then that's it for our concrete plans.  In general, we prefer to play things by ear.  I think we're going to stay gone as long as time and money hold out.  

I can hardly wait!


  1. GAAHHH!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!! WHY WON'T THESE WEEKS JUST GO!! At least one week needs to hurry up. I need more LOST!]
