Secret Swap – July Prompt

Along with last Friday’s post, Secret Swap – July Prompt, is from the new challenge group I am in! I am so excited that this is starting to give me help with topics and encouragement with writing!

Today’s secret swap prompt was was submitted by Kimberly Yavorski.
The prompt is:
If you could permanently relocate to your favorite vacation spot, would you? Why or why not?

If I could permanently relocate it is a tough one. Alaska or Panama City Beach. Alaska has nice cool summers (no humidity) and I love a long fall. Long sleeves and jeans – yes please! Panama City Beach has the beach. I just am not sure that I could deal with the threat of hurricanes. Now if you would have asked me about staying in Alaska my first year we lived there – I would have said absolutely not, but the place really grew on me! I started to learn to love it! The only major downside is that it is expensive to go and visit people in the lower 48. BUT, being in the lower 48 for over a year now – people still don’t visit that often, and so I kinda wonder if that is a valid excuse anymore.


Beautiful, isn’t it?


I am not regretting my decision of Alaska. That is where I would go. A perfect touristy place in the summer, but home throughout.  I can deal with cold, hot just gets too much sometimes I think. At least for me. You can only take off so much clothing, you can always put on more!

Are you a warm weather person or cold?

Don’t forge to visit the person who provided me my Secret Swap Prompt to see what she was given! Then you can hop from blog to blog reading everyone’s take on what they were given to write about.

Almost There

Almost there.

We are almost to Thanksgiving. This year the dinner is being picked up on a Wednesday from Alaska Dinner Factory so that I can just throw it in the oven on Thursday.  I wont’ have to stress. I already have enough so this is perfect. I won’t have to worry about throwing away leftovers that would live in my frig as Nick ate them for the next week.  I have to clean that thing out for a final inspection and hate the idea of putting more things in it right now.

Almost to the kids last week of school. They will get a packet of school work to do while they are in transit. I bet Abby will zoom through it within a week and Ryley will protest it the whole way.

Almost to my last day in the office. Kind of bittersweet. Mainly because it won’t really be my last day of work – just for now and until I get internet in Georgia. I won’t have my team with me, but they won’t be that far.

Almost to my 34th birthday.

Almost to my mother-in-law and brother-in-law flying in to fly out with my kids in tow.

Almost to a drive across the country to see family and friends.

Almost to our once home of 9 years.

Almost to our new home for next 3 years.

Almost there.

Random Stuff

Random stuff for you here….

Tomorrow is Friday, but today felt more like a Friday to me than a Thursday.

December 9th is coming fast.

December 5th is coming faster.

Trying to plan my next race isn’t as easy as it sounds.

I feel like I could use a coffee right now.

It is 8:12 pm.

Sales goals aren’t going to make themselves.

I love the ability to come up with a campaign that makes a client happy, and is fun to present.

I think I need to go stroll the aisles of an office supply store.

Stationary and pens make me happy.

My kids have tomorrow off, yet I still have to go to work.

I have a chocolate party tomorrow, book party, kids party, and a potential spa party between tomorrow and Saturday.

I am going to be busy.

I am going to miss Alaska.

I admit it.

I can’t wait for the beach.

I can’t wait to sweat.

I think this is all I have for now.

Not much – but it is something.
