I have barely been updating this blog lately because I feel like I have too much to say and not enough time to say it properly. I am leaving for my holiday in just a few weeks and I am feeling well and truly overwhelmed with everything I have to do before I go. There is a whole heap of crap stressing me out right now but I just deleted what I wrote about it all because I realised it was incredibly boring and you have your own problems.

The only thing keeping me going is that in only 3 and a half weeks I'll be finishing my job forever and boarding a plane for a 3 month trip of a lifetime. I have a feeling I am going to get on the flight to Vancouver and curl up into a ball and cry, but at least I'll have 3 months to relax and start to feel more like myself.

Speaking of my holiday, here are my plans so far...

  • Arrive in Vancouver and spend a week with brother #1 and his girlfriend exploring beautiful Vancouver.
  • Get on a bus for 13 hours to Banff and spend the week with brother #2 and his girlfriend at the snow trying not to kill myself on the snowboard.
  • Fly to Las Vegas for AJ's 30th birthday and spend the week at the Venetian with brother #2 and his girlfriend causing as much trouble as possible.
  • Pick up a hire car and embark on an 8 week road trip around the USA going where ever we feel like it, when ever we feel like it!
  • Fly to Mexico and stay here for a week of indulgence at an all inclusive (including alcohol) and child free resort.
  • Fly to Alaska to explore for the week (we were going to get a cruise, but too pricey for us).
  • Back to Vancouver where I'll meet with both brothers and my dad and step mum will be arriving from Australia for a family reunion.
  • Fly home to Melbourne and wonder what to do with the rest of my life.

So as stressed out as I am feeling now trying to get everything done, it'll all be worth it!
