Faced with the prospect of not having any children in the house for most of July, my wife and I decided to go someplace fun in a twosome fashion. But we both feel the burden of having a good time, so we took the pressure off by deciding to work on vacation.
That means we loaded up the car with books and have headed off to my family’s summer cottage, having checked with my siblings to make sure we have it to ourselves for a few days. So, I’m sitting here reading, and writing some stuff I’ve meant to write. At night we’ll eat food we like, and see some plays at Shakespeare & Co. It is exceedingly pleasant.
On the other hand, for the next few days, I’m on dialup. (It also means that I’m using AOL. If you have a better way for me to use dialup very occasionally, let me know.) Thank goodness there are usually parking spaces outside the public library within reach of its wifi signal early in the morning when I go into town to buy groceries, newspapers, and the best sourdough bread in the country.
And now I must get back to work!
