Btw, the kids are fine. Mostly.
I wish architects would start adding computer nooks as a standard space in houses. And I don’t mean just an official office. I want a space for the kids’ computer as well as a real office for the adults.
We have family coming to visit and I’ve been trying to suppress my desire to spiffy-up the place. No need to buy superfluous knickknacks, especially right before Christmas! I also have to remember to use my time wisely. Washing guest room sheets, important. Rearranging the bookshelf, not important.
This really should be required viewing for everyone who has kids, interacts with kids, teaches kids, knows kids, lives nears kids, is a kid, or used to be a kid.

Bow down to my awesomeness!!
The beach was really relaxing and beautiful. I took my book with me each day, but never bothered opening it. It was just a joy to doze on the chaise and not really do anything. I highly recommend it.
We ran into a convention of four hundred Red Hat Ladies. They were a hoot to see. My favorite was one of the husbands who was wearing a purple shirt and a red hat too, though no sparkles. I can totally tell I am going to fit right in with them in a couple of decades. 😀
PS- Remind me of this if and when I start screaming, “No, no, no, over my dead body” about my mom’s sheep collection, some of which are almost life-size. 😛
- The kids get out of school.
- My oldest nephew comes home from Afghanistan. \0/
- Kevin’s youngest brother is getting married. Woot.
- Kevin’s grandma is having the first of her 80th birthday parties while we’re all together for the wedding.
- Kevin’s other brother, who is in the Air Force, completes his psychiatry residency and moves to his first real assignment. Making this even better, he got orders to his first choice base, which is near his wife’s family. YAY!
