I still have not heard one way or the other from my side job. Like hellooo? might be nice to know what is going on!
A little more snow overnight and then 5 minutes ago it just started dumping big flakes.
I guess we're going on a little vacation at the end of June. With the Ford Explorer we purchased, because it is the "ST" (high performance, that's for dh, LOL) Ford offers an "ST Driving Experience". Basically a day where they show you how it handles, etc, but you use their car(s) (I guess, LOL). They offer this either in Park City, Utah or Asheville, NC. Of course DD, SIL and DH want to go. But DD and SIL want to go to NC. The cost of getting there is at your own expense, so we're going to go to the Utah one, where we can drive there in one day. It's a dinner (I think for the whole group/class that is attending the next day) and a nights stay at this nice hotel and then next day is the all day class.
It's about an 8 or so hour drive there, so we can leave home fairly early morning and get there in time to check in and do the dinner. Since it's free for that one night, the registration process only books you for that night. If you want additional night(s), at your own expense, you can add them on your own. Well, it gave a name, ph# and email to contact, but I didn't write it down while registering online last night, so now I'll have to call and figure it out. We'd like to stay a 2nd night, as the class will take most of the day and we don't want to drive back home late in the day. It's like a $300 a night hotel, apparently. I guess we deserve to treat ourselves for one more night. Especially as I hate staying in hotels, I'm sure this will be a much nicer one they we usually stay in, LOL. We may take another couple days and drive down to see the Grand Canyon, as long as dd can pet sit, we might as well.
I plan to just take that whole last week of June off and now just realized the next Monday and Tuesday is our 4th of July holiday's so it will be a nice long vacation time off.
DD asked me yesterday if we had figured which dates we were going to go (they offer quite a few all throughout the summer months). They were trying to schedule when to do theirs and then she said "and I'm sure you guys would need pet sitter while you are gone and either she (or both of them) will come over and stay at our house while we're gone. Oh! well, that's very nice to offer as yes, we'd have to figure out something for the pets (and chickens!) if we go somewhere. And since I booked it to do a Monday/Tuesday experience, she can come over on Sunday and not have to take off work to drive over here and, if she wants to, she can just work from here while we're gone, if she doesn't want to use any of her vacation days. Her dh earns lots more days then she does (length of employment) so if he wants to come he can either use up some days or, if by chance, he gets the new position he's applied for, it's a work from home job, so he could work from here, too. They are going to do the mid June experience in NC and extend their stay a few days and do a bunch of sight seeing, since neither of them have been there before.
Something to look forward to. I have driven through Utah once or twice years ago, but I don't think we ever stopped anywhere there.
