Away for the weekend

Got out of Dodge for the weekend.

Hanging out with my old roomie Kent and his brother, Darryl. They have a 2600 hundred sq. foot house in Abbotsford. And a backyard. With a trampoline. And a hot tub. *sigh* and I forgot to bring shorts or a swimsuit. Next time.

The kids were bouncing on the trampoline last night till after dark. Darryl went out to bounce them really high, which was pretty hilarious - but then Monkey Boy came down so hard it knocked the wind out of him and his glasses went flying. It was too dark to find them in the grass, but we found them this morning.

So roomie has one of those huge projection TVs upstairs... and a complete home theater downstairs. Holy crap man! Seriously, he has his own private theater with the walls painted black and over 1600 movies. O.M.G. The kids were delirious with delight and don't know what they want to watch first.

It's really nice. Roomie has invited us out several times in the last few years, but we have just never been able to make it out. And now we are here. And I think we're going to come out a couple of times this summer. I really miss roomie, but I don't think I realized how much I missed him.

It's family. We're home here.

I wouldn't mind "getting out of Dodge" ... but it's not likely to happen in the next week or so. [The good news is that I landed a new job, but it also means no traveling anywhere after the job starts on June 16, including to come see you.]

It's a pity your kids were along ... who needs a swimsuit for a hot tub otherwise? :-)

That's wonderful! I know you've been missing him it's just hard to make the time to think about it while you're putting our fires.

Enjoy ! You deserve it!
