May 2010 will be a month of rest for me! Well, at least one week of it will be. My hubby and I are finally getting away by ourselves. First time since we became parents... 2 years ago. And yes, I'm sure this will actually create a lot more work for me, packing, washing, preparing the kids to be away, etc. But I'll just believe what I want to believe.

I know what I'm GOING to accomplish! Its something I've been hoping and dreaming of for almost 2 years: moving in with my boyfriend. We've been a 16 hour bus ride apart, going months without seeing one another, so I'm looking forward to that big relocation. I'm hoping to accomplish the feat of finding a good job when I get there.
