There and Back Again

But without dragons.

My wife and I escaped for a long weekend to a not-too-distant cottage and lived the life of Riley for about four days. My mother-in-law graciously kept an eye on the little ones while my better half and I were gone. I got to read a couple books, eat in restaurants without worrying about whether the menu was amenable to a 20 month old child and watch college football in amounts unknown practically since college. My wife assures me she also had a good time despite spending so much time knitting instead of doing something fun.

On the other hand, it's good to be back too. I missed the little ankle-biters, it's nice to sleep in my own bed (my back has ceased to complain with such vehemence) and I can play WoW again before Brewfest ends.

Now playing: Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood - 03 - Texas Flood
