Jim always says his family never took vacations growing up. Instead, each trip was a work-cation. Whether it was putting a new roof on his grandma's house or helping round up some cattle, each roadtrip promised a sweaty couple of days filled with good labor.
When I told him I was going to Utah to help JoDee pull off a surprise party for Shane, he laughed and said it sounded like I was headed for a "work-cation" of my own. In a way, that was true. Jo & I hustled for days pulling together details for the party, and I could hardly keep my tired eyes open on the drive back home.
But there are few people I'd rather work side-by-side with than my sisters. We did a whole lot of laughing on the road to Saturday night's surprise. And it was a success. Those of you who know Shane (you can't fool that man!) and JoDee (who simply can't lie well) will be stunned to hear that the man was indeed surprised.
It was a fabulous time, JoDee, and I'm glad I could be a part of it!
