And now back to our regularly scheduled program

Ok, enough about the wedding.  The kids are off exploring Stockholm and taking in the sites of Sweden, but somehow I keep thinking of the Swedish Chef.     

Enough lallygagging about.  Time to get back to work and take care of the pile of reports/reviews/meetings I have missed.  I deliberately took off 5 days for this shindig (3 before, 2 after).  Even though I didn't have as much to do as the moms or the bride, I did need to prep the home and get things in order before Saturday.  I planned to use the two days afterwards to wind down and I am glad I did. 

As usual, I have  been keeping up with my work e-mails just to see how big a mess I will  walk into tomorrow.  Several headaches and two crises await me in the morning.  I had hoped to use today to clean up the garage or check out the Batman flick, but time slipped away from me.  I am already working on my next road trip to Maine in two weeks before Labor day as well as the upcoming football season.  I hope to be able to take the new trailer out for the first real road trip for the first home game against Florida.  It will be our first night in the trailer and we can actually test it out to see what works.    My folks came over yesterday wanting to look at our new rig (they hadn't seen it yet) and they were elated that we had gotten a nice trailer (always looking for that parental seal of approval).  

It is time to get back to the normal chores that we have neglected for the past two weeks.  We are still looking for a new car, I need to have the driveway replaced, I am cleaning out the home office, and next week we may off load our family piano.  Long story that I will relay later.  For now, it is time to walk the dogs and gather up my notes for the office in the morning.  Always hard to jump right back into the pool after a week of "R&R".  Maybe I will attempt a visual montage of my commute to work like a few others have done.

As soon as I saw the Swedish Chef, I thought, "Der-dee-DER, dee-der, DEE-der!" Loved that guy on the Muppets!

You are so busy, I don't know how you keep up. It's good to hear you'll get some use out of that new trailer of yours! You need some down time!

All good things must come to an end *sigh*.
I'm glad you have the camping to look forward to though! Plus it meets the parents' approval - and they seem to be the Airstream experts. ;)
Good luck at work this week! Remember to bring along your camera!

The Swedish Chef was one of my favourites too.

Hope the return to the fray is not as bad as it sounds, I hate it when things save themselves up for your return from a break...

I agree with the other Swedish Chef fans, but wasn't it more "HERN-dee DER-dee HERN-dee-hern..."

And I've been wondering when you're getting the Airstream out in the wilds. Well, ease back into work as much as possible. Enjoy the commute, and do share.
