As I write this I sit stranded in Houston. My daughter has taken the rest of the family out to see the town for a bit, but, alas, I've been left behind due to lack of room in her car. After all, I've been here before and they haven't. It gives me some time to catch up with things.
If the Blogging from A to Z April event put me behind, being on vacation has done so considerably. My AOL email box now hovers in the 2600 range and G-mail threatens to pass 300. And minimal computer access has made visiting your blogs very difficult. I've been checking up on my comments and little else. My time alone now will allow me to prepare this brief post and then it will be back family festivities. When this post appears on Wednesday I should theoretically be home and back to "normal" whatever that will mean.
It's kind of weird. We work to save up the money to take a nice vacation and then after it's all over we have all kinds of work to catch up on that has piled up during vacation. Does it ever seem to you like going back to normal everyday life is like taking a vacation from vacations?
Yeah, that's just me thinking again. Maybe I need to take a vacation from that as well.
