Thursday Thirteen #8

Thursday Thirteen #8

13 Reasons I’m glad to be back from vacation!

1. I came back to a new contract from Ellora’s Cave for Zarius.
2. I had Double Penetration’s first review waiting in my email.
3. Internet access on the ship was expensive.
4. My cell phone worked but only if I wanted to pay international long distance.
5. I needed to come back to rest.
6. I charged way too much (now I need to work to pay for it)
7. I gained 5 pounds!
8. It was hot…way hot.
9. I missed my puppies.
10. I couldn’t watch Nascar on the ship.
11. I missed my bed and my favorite pillow.
12. I really wanted to go back to the day job…Not!
13. I couldn’t wait to do laundry!
Okay, I ran out of reason to come back. Maybe, I should have listed reasons to stay away.

My daughter found out the hard way about international cell phone rates...ouch! I hope you had a good time on the cruise, Nancy! I've been dying to go on one. Someday!

Congratulations again on the book and the review! I always gain weight when I go on vacation...which is why I never take them.

Thanks Paige!

Nicole, you should go on a cruise they're great.

Thanks Daisy.

Christine, I need to avoid vacations and maybe I'd lose some weight. Of course, setting in front of a computer all day doesn't help.

No NASCAR. I'm not sure I'd have gone to begin with! :)

LA Day said...

Thanks Shelley!

Lisa, I didn't know there wouldn't be NASCAR. We were at sea that day and I couldn't find it on tv. So I did periodically check it out via the Internet. Thankfully, it wasn't Bristol or Daytona:)
