Baby & an Airplane

Congrats to Rajean and Doug on their new little one, Reba! I was hoping "Gertie" would make her grand appearance before I was out touch for a few days and sure enough she did!! :)

And now it's time to finish getting ready...throw my last few items in the bag...and off to the airport I go!!!! I'm super excited, a little nervous, and quite ready to get the show on the road, er...sky! ha

Next time you hear from me, I'll be in Australia! I'll do my best to keep updated on here, but pics will be posted regularly on Facebook and when I get back, I'll give the stories on here!

Almost Packed & Ready to Go!

The trip meter is down to 3 days!! Where has all the time gone? It seems like just yesterday I was talking to Karissa about making the trip...it was March then. ha

Monday I have lots of last minute errands to run - hair cut, tanning, nail fill, laundry, helping at the office one last time until I get back. Tuesday morning I'll finish packing and then when mom gets home from work at lunch, we're going to head to Indy. I have several errands in the Castleton area. When Jenna gets off work, we're all going to go out to eat together...since we won't all be together again until Christmas! Then mom will head home with my vehicle and I'll spend the night at Jen's...she's dropping me off at the airport on Wednesday morning. Wow! Then my journey will begin!! :)

For now I'll leave you with the first of what I imagine will be HUNDREDS, possible THOUSANDS of pictures...here's my buddy, Stanley, sitting with my luggage.


*Most of you probably know the story about Flat Stanley. I'm helping out Rajean's friend, Missy's, 2nd grade class by taking Stanley with me as I trek around the world! I helped Stanley pick out his outfit since my original travel partner had a laminator accident in IL (where Missy teaches)...I think he's rockin' his "Tiger Woods golf attire!" hahaha

Another Season Ends

The golf course is officially closed for another winter! Everyone had finished up their last day of golfing and I got the clubhouse cleaned/locked down by 5pm! :)

Now I have a week off work (sorta...still gotta do payroll/bookwork per usual), then I'll be headed to Australia! I am sooooooooooooo excited I can hardly stand it! It's becoming more real and I'm sure reality will set in when I have my bags packed!?!

I'll try to do a few updates this week before I leave! Hope you're all enjoying the wonderful weather!

These are a few of my Favorite Things!

Well, thought I'd do a quick update...it's been pretty hectic around here lately, although there really isn't much going on! haha Explain that, huh? The golf course closes for the winter on Sunday night. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know, I'm a little more enthusiastic than I should be about not having a job all winter long, but really...I work so many hours from March-November that I am completely burnt out by this point. I'm over the crap that goes along with taking care of everyone and everything. I need a break! :) How lucky that in less than 2 weeks I will officially be on my way to Australia! Actually, I'll probably be there by now in 2 weeks. I cannot wait!! So I've been working a lot to get the clubhouse and course ready for shutdown...and I've been trying to get everything else squared away so I'm ready to be gone for a month! I've been teaching the bosses (Matt & Jesse) how to run their payroll on the computer and pay bills with computer checks...it's been interesting! ha Their other employees have little faith in them, I'm really just hoping the computers are in one piece when I get home...I'll fix it then! ha

And I haven't done any suggestions in awhile, so I thought I'd list some of my favorite music and books!

I'm currently reading the entire Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich and I can't put the books down!!! Actually, I'd probably be done reading the series (18 books I think), but I'm being held up waiting on the mail to arrive so I can get 1 of the books I need before I continue on! I'm becoming quite impatient! haha It's a cross of mystery and love/drama...so good! At least I think so! ha

And now for some new music...songs that have been on repeat on my iPod for the past week or two! I love new music and/or new artists...I'm always on the lookout! (I am just linking the music so if you don't have high speed internet, it won't slow you down!)

Alexandra Burke's Bad Boys

Michael Buble's Haven't Met You Yet

Owl City's Fireflies
