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.
