I'm exhausted...yet excited

I know I've told you all this before...but my boss is a NUT JOB! I've been working my ass off and I'm so ready for this little mini-vacation with my girls.

Setting: Phoenix, Arizona. The Biltmore Resort and Spa, boasting 8 pools, a full service 'state of the art' spa facility, and within close distance to Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Characters: The Diva girls, with appearances from Sports Mama, Yoga Zen Babe, and The Enigma.

Plot: Girls weekend away from the cares of the world. No kids, no husbands, no bosses or headaches (except for the self-induced ones that involve loads of alcohol), yummy food, no worrying about thighs or bellies...and did I mention Booze? A little bit of self-indulgence, a little bit of self-healing, Tarot readings, gossiping about Hollywood...and seriously...did I mention booze?

I arrive at the airport around 8am, The Saint is picking me up, then I'm dropping her off at work and she is graciously letting me use her car! I'll go have breakfast with Sports Mama, who by the way could use all the good thoughts in the world as she happens to be going through a very tough time. Then I will drop by and see YZB and her little munchkin. After that I'll spend some time with Soul Mate at her home until I meet up with The Enigma for his lunch. I doubt I'll eat since I'll be eating and drinking plenty once I get to the resort. Then...the fun will begin.

Trainer is very excited as well. For one, he gets to go on his own mini-vacation (even MORE mini b/c he's doing 24hrs in Vegas - and really that is all that the boy can handle) and two, he doesn't have to go see Sex and the City - The Movie with me. Oh...the little things. Yes, people...I'm sending him to Vegas. While one on hand we have absolutely no money (who does these days?) to spare I decided that we should each get one last hurrah as we go down the path that will leave us eating beans, rice and salad for about six months. It's not so terrible though...maybe I'll actually lose those FIVE fricken pounds that I've been vowing to take off?? It could happen...really, it could.

In preparation for my trip I have a list of things to get done.
- Arrange the dog sitter (check!)
- Get pedicure (on the way home tonight!)
- Get bikini wax (check!)
- Call Soul Mate for official countdown (on way to Pedicure!)
- Print SW ticket (check!)
- Print Hotel Confirmation (doing now, good thing I'm making a list)
- AND...pack, the dreadful packing that makes my puppies sad (later, as late as possible!)

So, that's what I have to do between now and midnight when I fall asleep...I'm usually in bed by 10, but I have a feeling I'll be doing something lying awake anticipating the alarm going off at 5am! (Take note you AZ peeps, that is 3am your time!) I can't wait to see my adoring fans...hahaha, my only fans in the blogging world. :) Peace out Yo!

I keep asking my boss, "So, what time exactly will I be able to leave tomorrow?" I finally made it to the mall to get a bathing suit (yikes! I'm going skimpier than I planned and letting it all hang out). Still need to fit in a pedicure in a BIG way! 26.5 hours and counting!! Love you. Travel safely and I'll see your sexy ass soon!!

While I know I'm not going to get to see as much of you as your Divas will, I am sooo excited anyway! :)

Besides, matter what time of day... ROCKS!
