I'm off (yes, my rocker, too)

I am leaving in a little over 24 hours. I can't concentrate at work. I can't even concentrate enough to figure out what or how to pack. I'm indescribably excited.

This is my first entire-week-out-of-the-office vacation in over a year* and my first more-than-a-week vacation since I went to New Zealand over five years ago.

J and I are flying east. To many of you who live there, it won't seem as exciting as it does to me. But I've never seen real fall leaves. I've never taken a train trip. And I've never been to Boston.**

And there are so many other things I didn't get to see in my previous visits.***

We're stopping in DC, Philly, New York and Boston. A short visit to each, but friends to visit everywhere. And perhaps a few things to see and take pictures of along the way.

I'll be back, eventually. Until then, there's plenty to read linked below and to the left over there.

* I can't believe it's been a year since I went to Kauai (for those posts start here: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7) on the other hand it seems like forever since I took a real, leave work behind vacation.

** OK, so I've flown into and driven out of the Boston airport, but that doesn't really count.

*** Including my New York visit in April (see here: 1 2 3 4).

Well I hope you have a wonderful and safe trip.

I live in amongst those stops (north of philly, south of NY) and the leaves are gorgeous right now!! What a wonderful time to come East! Enjoy the trip, enjoy the time away from work!

Have good time. Vacations are good even when they aren't somewhere exotic. Actually I've often found them to be better if they aren't!

I hope we find a time to catch up over bacon and eggs or something...LOL.

You're coming to Boston???? Good for you!!!! If you and Glitter get together, let me know! I don't know if you guys know each other outside of blogging - if so, I certainly wouldn't want to impose. But if you're just going to be hanging out doing nothing special, have her give me a buzz! And if not - then ENJOY!!! Boston is beautiful this time of year....hope the weather holds out for you. It was 73 today! :)
