Back From Vacation

I'm well rested mentally—got to read for fun, for long, uninterrupted periods, for the first time in years! I'm not so rested physically—it's pretty damn taxing unpacking and stowing all the stuff required by two adults and two children to tent-camp.

Before I left for vacation, I went no-mail on multiple e-mail lists that I subscribe to. Still, I came back to nearly 2,000 e-mails, a huge proportion of them spam! Thank goodness I didn't have work in-house today; it's showing up tomorrow.

One thing I learned anew: My husband's a saint. During the summer, I have all-day responsibility for our two sons, 5 and 12 years old, on weekdays while I work. I can get pretty fed up with them sometimes. On our camping trip, though, he took them off sailing and rowing and swimming, leaving me to the glorious quiet of no boys jabbering.

Welcome home! Camping is tiring, but it refreshes the soul.

And a big salute to Ed, who gave you the chance to recharge!

Welcome back! I missed reading your blog. I am glad you had a great time, though!

Thank you, kind readers. I have to do paying work today (while all the sleeping bags go through the washer and dryer one at a time), but I have post ideas percolating.
