I haven’t posted a blog in a while because I’ve been on vacation. Well, a vacation of sorts. My family is vacationing in Spirit Lake, Idaho for a week as we road-trip to Portland, Oregon to then drop my son Evan off at Lewis and Clark College, where he’ll start his undergraduate studies. It’s been a bit stressful, packing up the car with all of Evan’s possessions, preparing to take him to the next chapter of his life. But the stress has been mitigated with a week-long stay at our friend Suzanne’s cabin at Spirit Lake; all we seem to do here is sleep, eat, swim, repeat.
I’ve also taken a bit of a vacation from this blog, which is good. I enjoy the blog, but it’s an element of my day-to-day life, and right now I’ve separated from the day-to-day routine. I love to write, but sometimes it’s good to break from what we love.
