Yeah, so dad & kathy are out doing stuff, and steph and meggie went to the beach. I'm just sitting around the house relaxing. I remain confused why everyone else is so busy out doing things on vacation. Although I suppose they have the right to wonder at me sitting in the house reading and hacking and so on. Different people have different rest-states, I guess. Mine does not involve as much driving. It is somewhat lonely here, but I come to expect that during vacations.
