I actually need my vacation to come later than next week. These family vacations are starting to kill me. I could just not go, but I'd hate to miss my nephew's 4th birthday, and him playing on the beach now that he's old enough to really start to enjoy it.

Spent the last couple of days in hotels.

Not a fan.

Some of them were nice... but it was too expensive, overall.

My GF is all moved out of her place... but she had troubles with passport paperwork for her kids, so she can't leave to visit her friends until they come in... and mom said "No way!!" to them staying over my place.

So we've been doing rooms all weekend. Some nice... Some divey. ALL too much money for what you get.

And I've realized something: No matter how expensive and nicely appointed it is... there's still no place in the world as cold and soulless and a hotel room.

A very close second.

But, unlike a meeting room, a hotel room is supposed to make you feel comfortable and cozy... and yet, I can't think of one I've ever stayed in where that is actually how I felt.

They are just... well, "sterile" isn't the correct word, as a lot of them aren't that... not by a long shot...

Soulless.

My dad is all happy. Last year he buried his wife of 40 years. Last month he sold the house he lived it for 35 years. When we were at the Oshkosh fly-in he often joked he was now a homeless retired Vietnam Veteran.

Today he just found an RV. And is likely going to spend the rest of his life in florida living in it. He also has a Girlfriend. He greatly enjoys florida, and couldn't be happier.

I'm feeling lousy. Fighting a head/chest cold. Running on little sleep.

GF and kids now at the airport... on their way to visit friends out of country for a few weeks. Suddenly very quiet around me...

Another crazy busy week ahead of me. I need to get better today or I'm doomed.

Gonna take it very easy today, I think. Reading, TV, and naps.

Once again on vacation at Nags Head, NC. I'm kind of getting tired of this place. I would have skipped it this year, but I didn't want to miss my nephew's 4th birthday.

getting 2 wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow morning. I'm a little nervous, considering I have not experienced a bottom wisdom tooth being pulled out.

No-tap 300 game last night (no-tap = 9 pins on first ball = strike)

And I believe I told Ed on Facebook that I might have one, and that they might not have all been natural strikes (I had 5 no-tap strikes). Still, not a bad way to celebrate my birthday.

I know that feeling...

I broke my favorite tea mug this morning. The ginormous one with the American Flag emblazoned on it. (Pretty much my sole public display of patriotism...) Had to switch to a backup. It's just as big... yet, somehow, not really the same. It's gonna take a few days to recover from this...

At least I'm feeling better, and should have an early evening at work.

My wife and I finished the "Tour De pearl" which was a bike ride that included 20 stops at local bars. Not all at once, but at our leisure. one bar was only open at 5pm. And one place had no way to get there via bike unless you crossed a highway. At each stop you needed to ride your bike, and order a Pearl Street Brewery brew. There is an after party where those that have completed the tour get a chance at the drawing for a $3000 custom made bicycle. Probably biked over 50 miles over the course of the last few months

still dont know if ill be on the deployment with my unit or not. ****ing dentists havent reviewed/updated my **** yet, so i'm stuck in limbo...and there is NOTHING that i can do. other than try and remain calm at work. hahaha...this **** ****ing sucks. the way it's going now, i'll find out when i only have less than 2 weeks to go. hoping i go, cause the alternative really sucks-ESPECIALLY considering the condition of my vehicle. (brakes are starting to go)

Oh, happiness.

I also have some shopping to do.

But maybe later, I'll take a nice long walk. It's been a long time since I've had the free time to do that...

My sister had a surprise for me in her b-day gifts: the key to a second locker at the bowling alley. This will mean less of a load for me on the buses.

Really? I know you've mentioned her questionable decisions in the past... What makes her certifiable this time around?

Wildstar:

I went bowling yesterday with a group from work. I generally came in 2nd or 3rd out of about 14 of us participating. Most of my scores were in the low to mid 100s.

Seeing as that was only the 2nd or 3rd time I had ever been non-Candlepin bowling in my life, and the first time bowling at all in at least 3 or 4 years... I thought I did fairly well. I had a streak of 3 strikes in a row at one point. I also discovered I did better with lighter balls (shut up you guys...) with larger holes drilled out. Only one gutterball all day!

I think it's something I might be able to get pretty good at if I stuck with it and did it on a regular basis.

why has your sister gone completely insane, keyan?

calling off work...not a cloud in the sky today and i don't feel like spending entire day zoning and doing busy work. my medpros updated me so i'm a dental class 2-deployable now.

hey ike, have you experienced national guard/reservists using Logistics Health Incorporated dental vouchers? just wondering. cause that is what i had to use. no cost to me, just had to use their network.

Nice turkey, Ed!

What you actually want is a ball that fits your hand. The holes shouldn't be too tight or too loose, and you should be able to barely slip a pencil between your palm and the ball with your fingers in the ball. I actually use what they call a fingertip grip, where my fingers only go in to the first knuckle; I don't consider myself that strong, yet I can handle a 15 lb. ball w/ a free swing and w/o much grip pressure b/c the ball fits.
