4 January 2008 - 1:55Home Again
It was a long trip, but the time flew by. It seems like we were only gone for a couple of days, when in reality, we were out for almost 2 whole weeks. I just got back from the shop, making sure that I had everything I need to be ready for the onslaught of catch up that begins tomorrow.
Thankfully, many of the folks I need to deal with were just as busy as I was over the holidays.
So what was I up to this whole time?
I was visiting my mom in England. Some folks may know that I grew up there. Since I’ve lived over here in my late teens, twenties and thirties, I’ve only been back a handful of times. It was my first British Christmas in 19 years. It was great. Too much food. Too much drink.
Now when we make these big travels, there are three of us, wife and boy and myself. I have never made an Atlantic crossing with so much baggage and stuff. I felt for sure I would have a nervous breakdown.
I’ll bore you all to death with how I spent my Xmas vacation over the next few days.
I will say, that I am glad be home home, even though it’s -30° right now. I know this because I just walked the dog, who is also glad I’m home! He had a great vacation with a good friend of ours, and he spent it laying in front of a fire the whole time.
