Tuesday evening, I started my solo getaway, which has become a bit of an annual tradition. After the hectic budget season at work, I really need that downtime to just do whatever pleases me. Usually, I try to do some planning for the future, but this year felt like a lengthy meditation -- I really … Continue reading Getaway Recap
Our Quick Trip
Four days, including travel, but we fit a lot into those days together -- not only our primary purpose, but also a couple of meals out, a book, two movies, and a side trip to take a picture I thought Esther would appreciate!

I wish it were because I was having way too much fun, but alas, no. Just trying to keep my head above water. On the weekend, though, I had … Continue reading One Sunny Day on the Weekend
Questions about Reading
I've got a few posts I'd like to write, but somehow no energy for anything too in-depth. I just got home after being at work for 13 hours, which is kind of par for the course right now. Sigh. Anyway... A bunch of bloggers are answering these questions about reading, so I thought I'd chime … Continue reading Questions about Reading
