"...only end in disaster..."

Mel frequently sends me my weekly horoscope. Not that I am really a horoscope reader or believer, but sometimes find them interesting. Here is mine for this week:

"Diplomacy is letting someone else have your way," said Lester Pearson, a Taurus politician from Canada who won the Nobel Peace Prize. If I'm reading the astrological omens correctly, Taurus, the aptitude he described will be your specialty in the coming weeks. You will have a sixth sense about how to tactfully maneuver adversaries and colleagues alike into arriving at conclusions that will promote your goals. To maximize the likelihood that you'll be a benevolent manipulator, not a selfish one, try to arrange it so that getting your way will help others get their way as much as possible.

Then, Mel ended the e-mail with, "your horoscope can only end in disaster."

Does this give me reason to be a disaster in the upcoming week?

Feb already?

I am working over nights at the hospital tonight, which is the reason for blogging at such a crazy hour. I have started to make travel plans for the next few months and as always, there are more places I want to go and more people that I want to see than I have time for.

In two weeks, I am headed to a cottage in Door County with 3 other friends for a girls weekend get away. It should be a fun and relaxing weekend. I am ready to get out of the city for a little while. I think my years working at camp in the middle of no where really make me appreciate the quiet and crave it at times. I miss being a little nature girl.

In March I am headed to Indy to visit Mel and Aaron will be in town for a good old reunion. I am sure craziness will ensue...par for course when we are all together.
At the end of March I am going to try to make it home and to the farm. Apparently, when my parents moved into thier new house they moved a lot of my old stuff that they want me to go through and get rid of and do who knows what with. I also need to make a trip to the farm as I haven't been there since Christmas...that might be more of a priority than going through my old stuff.

I am hoping to make it to Miami sometime in April to visit Megan and work on my tan. Can't believe that I haven't been there since June and Megan is moving back in June. She deserves one more visit from me before she's done with that city. Let's just hope that this trip doesn't involve and accidental trip to the nude beach like last time(I think Megan knew, I was just the innocent victim).

May is going to be a very exciting month as it will be kicked off with my birthday and a trip to the StL to visit my brother and catch some Cubs/Cardinals games with the fam. The next weekend I will be headed to Cbus to visit Aaron and continue the celebration. We are renting a lodge on 60 secluded acres with 2 hot tubs and a fire pit. I am so excited.

I also wanted to fit in a trip to CO before Buggie moves back, but it looks like she might be moving back sooner than later as she just accepted a position at Genesis. Congrats Linds.

Who knows where I'll be after that, but that sounds like enough traveling for me in the near future.
