Countdown to Oregon

I've been trying to remember if last August was like this too. My LJ provides no clue. In any event, I'm feeling completely fried by work this month. It has just been one long barrage of questions, training, policy discussions, systems analysis, and requests for data, data, and more data, right now! Last night I was almost literally feeling numb as I sat eating my cold meal of spam and rats while helplessly watching a reality TV game show starring people I hate. You know what I mean? (Okay, it was a bowl of chili and reruns of NCIS, but it's practically the same thing.)

So it is with great, nearly overwhelming, emotion that I look forward to flying to Central Oregon tomorrow for a week in the high desert with my family. The agenda includes hiking, sight-seeing, drinking wine, eating great food, and reading. Oh yeah, and soaking in the desert sun like a little lizard with nothing better to do. Damn that sounds good! So of course it will be raining when I get there, no doubt.

But just getting a long break from work sounds like heaven right now. And so I watch the seconds tick away on the clock ...
