I need help with two things. First, I am really bored at work. So if anyone has any projects for me that don’t include crafts or cooking (I can’t easily do these things at work and still look like I’m actually working) send them my way. I’m serious. Anything. Projects for me or projects for you. You need a fancy spreadsheet created?! Allow me! You want me to create an electronic copy of your recipes, just send me the copies and I’ll do it. Honest. I’m not kidding, just that bored.
Second, I am turning 30 in a few short weeks (!) and can’t decide how to celebrate. I have no idea why I am having such a hard time with this. We were initially going to go to NYC, but I waited too long and couldn’t get reservations at the cheap place. Then, I found an affordable inn in West Virginia to which I’ve never been, near some four-season resorts and state parks. But for some reason, I’m dragging my feet in getting a reservation. So here’s the deal: we have $500 and a three-day weekend. What to do?! I thought about flying to Charleston or Savannah, but then slapped my forehead and said “Duh” quite loudly. Me, below the 38th parallel in August?? Suuure, that’s gonna happen. Then Boston came to mind, but I can’t imagine that it’s affordable. Plus, it’s probably very busy this time of year and I generally try to eschew crowds. Another thought was Niagara Falls, but after the initial “Ooooh,” while viewing said falls, what do you do next? Finally, I thought maybe I’ll just stay home, invite friends, have a BBQ, and go shopping with the leftover monies. But I just can’t decide! Any other suggestions of fun places to visit? Or fun things to do over that first weekend in August? Help!
