I love.... Mondays??

You read that right! I love Mondays. Or, Monday - as in today. Why? Because today is one day closer to a weekend in Havasu. My family is into boating (brother wakeboards, dad ski's, I spectate) & this will be our first boating trip of the "season". It will probably be the only one Ted & I can go to, and given the shit state of the economy it may be the only one of the season anyways. And just to make this trip even better, our fun/awesome neighbors are coming, along with one of Ted's coworkers & her boyfriend. So it should be really fun! I haven't met this coworker of Ted's, but from what he's told me about her she sounds really awesome, so I'm stoked for some R&R.

The only thing I don't really like about going to the river is that I am so obscenely and ghostly white I actually reflect light. It's pretty bad. I can tan, but I don't. Dad's had two melanomas so I don't mess around with tanning anymore. It's just not worth it to me after seeing what he's gone through. I know many people are like "Yeah, skin cancer is no big deal." But it is a big deal. It's a BIG, SCARY deal. Aren't ya'll glad you jumped into the Debbie Downer post today? Enough on that. The point is I am ghostly white and people look at me as such.

I am really looking forward to Friday rolling around and getting out of town! I just can't believe how quickly the year is flying by. It's already May. The problem is that once I realize it's May, it's almost June, and so on. Speaking of June... I have to brainstorm a good birthday present for my brother who will be turning 24. Twenty-four. When the hell did that happen? I'm pretty sure last year he was 12 & annoying.

Come on Week, go by faster!

Havasu as in Lake Havasu, Arizona? If so, that's awesome. But be prepared: it has been HOT in this darned state. Too hot, really.
And I agree. Skin cancer is nothing to mess around with. Or, for that matter, tanning.

Yes, Lake Havasu. I was hoping it wasn't too hot there yet. We usually do a May trip and a September trip when it's cooling down. I'll just have to stay in the water! hahaha.
