Off to the cabin!

I need a vacation! Instead, I'm going to the cabin w/the family. LOL

My parents' "cabin" is a house on the lake w/2 bedrooms & bath upstairs, 1 bedroom, bath, living room, dining room & kitchen downstairs, a slightly finished basement with more than enough room for a few air mattresses, and a deck. Of course, even though it sounds big, the annual Kids Weekend puts 17 people into that cabin.

We won't have air conditioning, or internets. We also probably won't have cell reception.

I'm planning on getting a lot of writing done. I still have some space shuttle stuff to write, the rest of the Florida trip, pretty much all of Phoenix ComiCon, w00tstock, CONvergence, and, of course, the newest Antarctica contest. A bunch of those will also be getting posted over at the Frozen Sharon site.

I really haven't done much pimping for votes on this contest yet because I just haven't had the energy. With minimal mentions I'm in 39th place. This time you only have to make the top 5, and then the judges choose from them. I'm 362 votes from being in the top five. I'm going to get some blog posts ready this weekend and also get emails ready to send out. This time for the contest I'm going to try to get people who tweet & blog about it for me to all try to do it in the same few days. Maybe more people will click to vote if they see more than one person pimping it.



*edit*
Well, hell. I totally forgot to post this before heading to the cabin yesterday. But, the whole "we won't have internets" thing? Not so much. Dad got high speed up here and a wireless modem. So, now I post.

Mind if I share this link and see if I can drum up more people to vote for you?

That would be awesome!
You can also link either to LJ or to Frozen Sharon. I'm going to be posting in both places.
And if you're on Facebook there's a "Send Sharon to Antarctica!" group. :)

I just posted about it on LJ, Frozen Sharon, and updated the Facebook "Send Sharon to Antarctica" group.

I did, but why am I so tired after what's supposed to be a relaxing weekend? It must be all the family!
