Ocracoke or Bust!

Yup, that's right! The time is almost here. You know what I mean... the time when the clock seems to slow to half-time.... each second ticking by slower than the last....

That's because I'm a short-timer now! Just a day of work to finish up, and a jeep to pack tonight. Then, its VACATION TIME! Its time to see THIS view again!

And it can't get here too soon!

In some ways, its so hard to believe its already here. My daughter has finished school for the year. My son will done in 4 short hours. They are growing up. Each year, time flies by so much more quickly. The school year is passing in the blink of an eye. Each photograph snapped of the kids shows how fast they are changing. Sigh.

And, in other ways, I can't believe vacation taking SOOOO LONG to get here. I mean, really. We've been looking forward to it for a whole year. 365 days. We've been planning this trip, from the last moments of last years trip! We even reserved our beach house before we checked out last year! And all the preparations. My mother-in-law and I have been emailing back and forth about what to bring. My husband and I have been debating just how much we can cram into the jeep for another trip. And its almost here. This last day is going to take forever! I'm itching to get on the road!

But, we're ready. House-sitter- Check. Dog-sitter: Check. Packing: Check. Confirmation papers printed: Check. Surf Camp reserved: Check. Paddle Board reserved: Check.

Now, there's nothing to do but the waiting! Come on clock! Tick already!
