Cat taking a vacation.
Well, at least that was what was supposed to run on the 26th, but due to my trip to a retirement village, the wilderness of the Grand Canyon and too much booze and gambling in Vegas, it never got published. Sorry. Hope you didn’t get too concerned for me (let’s be honest, you were too busy eating Christmas cookies).
I’m just home from the American Southwest and so jet lagged, I didn’t recognize a student, so I’m going to put off writing for today. Just in case you’ve missed me the past two weeks, here’s an interview I did for Easy Expat a few weeks ago.
Last year’s Christmas was me dragging my suitcase to school and the Christmas luncheon, a multiple-hour delayed flight to Dublin (with a few tears because it had been an entire year since I’d seen my family), driving along the southern half of Ireland with a nasty sinus infection, a sicky NYE and the following drug-induced Sex and the City marathon while Amy slept it off, another delayed flight to Berlin and catching up with friends.
The morning after arriving back to Spain, everyone moped (and online shopped) about the slump after the holidays. I haven’t even stopped to rest! I exclaimed, though no one found it amusing.
But, alas, even this busybody is looking forward to a few weeks at Grandma and Grandpa’s senior citizen living center in Phoenix with trips to the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Vegas and Tombstone (Kike’s request, not mine) peppered in.
I thought I’d leave you all with a few morsels to keep you nibbling while you’re stuffing yourself with Christmas goodies, but I just don’t care to. It’s my 19 days off of school, and I plan to relax. So there.
That is all. Enjoy your holidays, friends.
