Having just returned home from a fabulous vacation to . . . Detroit, Michigan, I am reuniting with my beloved computer. We didn't take it with us because my man doesn't like the idea of connecting to the world of cyber-space at hotels where some geek-like thug could hack into our personal files and wreak havoc in the land of identity thievery. And I trust his judgment. My man's got it going on. He's super smart. :)

Since he had to travel for work during the week of spring break, he invited us to tag along. So I took the cue to spend undivided-attention kind of time with my kids while Daddy worked during the day. No computer. No blogging. No following other blogs. No laundry. No dinner-making. The change of scenery was much needed. Okay, Detroit is really no vacation mecca. But, seriously, I needed to be bored a little bit. For my kids' sake. For my own sake. For my blog's sake too, I think.

And the boredom let me reunite with my kids a bit. Swimming in the hotel pool at least daily. Laying around reading books and watching cartoons. Not thinking about anything. Except that we're not thinking about anything.

And now we're home. And I can't wait for bedtime. When I am reunited with my bed.

But for now, I need to go reunite with my washing machine...

Yup, South Bend is pretty close and I was born and raised there. I lived for part of the time (2nd-8th grade) in Three Rivers. Woohoo! I am so glad that you enjoyed that post. I t was kind of a fight to write. I just wasn't sure, but that is usually when it really ministers to someone (including myself!) Glad you enjoyed it. I have another one coming for monday that I have been mulling around in my brain. lol. Looking forward to your "vigilance" too.
