Yeah, I Think I'll go to Boston...



Yep, my trip is all planned out. My father offered some of his frequent flier miles after I'd already paid for my Atlanta tickets. After I mentioned that on my blog, a few of my friends started extending invitations. Caitlin was the first to mention a specific date - Memorial Day - so I requested the time off from work and actually got it. Yay! I haven't seen Cait in 2 years (coincidentally, during Memorial day that year), so I'm really looking forward to the trip. Our mutual friend Moriah will also be coming down that weekend from Ohio (coincidentally, the last time I saw her was also Memorial day two years ago, at her wedding in Ohio!) with her husband.

I haven't been to the Boston area since I was a little kid, and I don't remember a whole lot. Caitlin is going to take some time off from work and we'll run around having fun on our own for a few days before Eric and Moriah get there. We were thinking of visiting Salem, MA one day, Newport, RI another, and I'm not sure what else yet.

Luckily for me, Caitlin's husband Kyle is also obsessed with the supernatural, so I've convinced them to take a haunted tour of Boston one night. This is one that will re-route the tour to accomodate wheelchairs, which is great, because we'd hate to leave Cait stuck somewhere in a purportedly haunted location in the dark without us! (And we'd hate to be left like that as well!)

Time is flying, and the trip is coming up quite soon. This weekend I am helping Kristin out with a wedding, so I'll be making some vacation moola. I will need it. I also need to do a whole lot of laundry before I can pack, which I should be able to do this weekend. (I wrote it down for the world to see - that means I'm accountable and it might actually get done.) My apartment complex is replacing the faucets in my apartment while I am gone, so I also need to do some cleaning around here so they don't decide to evict me (again with the accountability here)...

Wish me luck on the cleaning!

Congrats on the vacation! I am jealous of everyone who is taking them these days. But then I guess I'll get to rub it all in this summer.

Fun! Fun! Fun!
Interesting tidbit about your obsession with the supernatural! I could write on the subject for days, but alas, that's part of the 8.4% I don't share on my blog. I did write something a few days ago, that might have come across as a joke, but was very true.

Tami....
You HAVE to go to Fennuil Hall for shopping. Also the Omni Parker House is where Boston Cream Pie was created and it is delicious!
There is also Newbury Street, which is awesome to walk & shop. It is equlivant to Rodeo Dr. in california, but also has affordable stores as well. If you make it to Newbury Street, then eat at Stephanie's. SO GOOD!
And I am SO jealous that you're going. Have a great time!
