I've been home for a week and a day and it's only tonight I feel like things are getting back to normal. My older brother passed through last Monday and my friend Brittany came into town on Tuesday and stayed for nearly a full week.
I always love with Mark comes into town...he alwayshas some cool "tech/news of the future" to share and he did return my car full of gas after borrowing it for the evening. It was also really fun to have Brittany here and she was tremendous help in digging Lisa's classroom out and getting it prepped for another school year.
I am mindful of the tremendous hospitality Lisa and I enjoyed from so many friends and family on our trip so I'm forever going to be happy to have people visit and offer and a bed or a meal.
With that said, I'm very glad that tonight is a peaceful night with just Lisa, Beowulf and me.
Our summer is over.
