The casinos were fun, but I can't quit my job just yet. The beach was nice, but having my aversion to jellyfish (maybe that's a blog entry for another time), I spent little time getting more than my feet and ankles wet. I mainly hung out at the apartment pool, walked the beachside, and watched MTV in my mother-in-law's home. (I could criticize some MTV programming - "Date My Mom"? - but I have to realize that I am 35 years old and therefore MTV does not recognize my existence anyway.)
That said, I did watch much of the Live8 concert and was wowed at how cool that was. I flipped between that and Williams/Davenport at Wimbledon. Oh my God, what a great match that was. For the ages, maybe? Time will tell. Not rooting for either player and admiring both, I was transfixed by level of excellence this Wimbledon achieved.
But back to the vacation, we had some great laughs and loved our visit. It's good to be back home though. I missed, among other things:
- coffee at Provence
- my neighbors on Cornelius Dr.
- Nashville Public Library Main Branch
- the Waffle House where everyone knows me
- the workplace (sad, but true)
- spending way too much time on the internet
Vacation over. Back to work.
