How funny that Linda popped on looking for updates just as I was about to write/post this.
I just wanted to tell everyone that I am looking forward to our annual Labor Day weekend trip to Chapel Hill, NC, and one of the reasons might surprise you.
I love to go away; it really doesn’t matter if there’s anything special about the destination. We are going to ProgDay, which is a two-day outdoor progressive music festival. We enjoy the bands and the atmosphere. The kids are excited about going. While we are there, we will probably head to the Morehead Planetarium at UNC, like we did the past two years. We have a planetarium here, of course (none other than the National Air & Space Museum), but we never make it there, somehow.
One of the big reasons I am looking forward to this trip is that I get to sleep more. They say that a vacation with your kids is not a true vacation. I disagree. When we started taking the kids to this event two years ago (we skipped a couple years after Einstein was born), I realized that after we got the kids to sleep, we could actually go to sleep ourselves (or watch TV without guilt) because WE’RE IN CHAPEL HILL AND THERE ARE NO CHORES HERE. I was so rested.
Oh, and in answer to Linda’s question, today is Einstein’s first day of Kindergarten. That’s what’s up!
