Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Back to our regular programming....
I survived. Thanks for putting up with my whining.

It's actually pretty amazing how worrying about getting better so you can go on a great vacation is so much more restorative than worrying about going back to work.....

I survived, but I lost 4 days in a pile of kleenex, coffee mugs, dirty dishes, and lots of sick laundry along the way, and now I'm really behind.

You see, I signed up to finally get my open water PADI dive certification on this trip, and in order to start the lessons on Thursday morning (at 7:30!! - this is supposed to be vacation!) I have to complete a 10 hour online training course which I am about to start as soon as I post this. And to be honest, I'm not sure my sinuses are quite up to a 6 hour flight followed immediately by a 60 foot dive in the same 48 hour period just yet. My head will splode.

But - a bad day on vacation is still better than a good day at work - right? Remember when you were a kid, walking home from the last day of school with the entire summer stretched out before you like some endless possibility with utterly no responsibilities? It may only be 10 days - but yeah - it's like that, only grownups have a LOT more fun ;-)

    Of course it is right. Just rub it in that you are off to go diving and sit in the sun while we freeze our collective bottoms off.

    Have a great time.
