Off to Phuket

Jeff came home early yesterday with some good news and some bad news. The bad news being that his project isn't launching this weekend like we thought. The good news is that he's taking Friday off so we can go away this weekend.

These setbacks are pretty frustrating. At least at VSA, the busy season was confined to a finite period of time. But these things are out of our control and it doesn't help to be rigid. On the bright side, now Jeff can take this weekend to recharge with a little r&r — and plane tickets to Phuket are way cheap.

Although it won't be all rest and relaxation. Since Jeff and I still feel a little weird going to Phuket post-tsunami, we're planning on spending part of the weekend on Phi Phi Don volunteering with the kind folks of HiPhiPhi. I had to find workgloves and waterproof shoes today to bring with us. And if our hands aren't enough help, we're told our tourist dollar certainly will be.
