I’m back from my mini-vacation!
Portland was nice, the wedding was great, and it was good to hang out with my Dad and his new bride, Jennifer!
If you ever get to Portland, make sure to eat at the Black Bear Diner. The prices are good, the portions are obscene, and the food is pretty damn good (well, at least the prime rib was).
We took it pretty easy on the drive. It took 6 1/2 hours to drive down and 8 1/2 hours to drive back (we stopped a lot… looked around.. and enjoyed the trip).
Today, I return to work.
If it could go wrong… it has.
I’m currently buried in e-mail hell (I’m trying to mine the important things out of my inbox), and several critical things came up during my 3 work days off. Heaven forbid I actually ever try to take a week off.
Other news: my youngest son, Skylar, celebrated his 14th birthday yesterday. Being that he’s a little geek (go figure), he wanted games for his PC. I picked up a copy of World of Warcraft (plus a pre-paid game card), Doom 3 – Resurrection of Evil, and Quake 4 for him. He also got Half-Life 2 – Episode One and the new Super Mario Brothers for his Nintendo DS.
Yup… he’s one happy kid.
