We are on vacation for two weeks, at my parents’ weekend house in the Catskills.
Just me, the kids and Husbandrinka. And Nicki.
This is the first year in recent memory that we are not having a beach vacation– usually we head out to Block Island, but last year’s ferry ride (and the economy) cured me of that.
So we are staying put, in the Catskills.
Where we will play tennis at the local high school courts, go for walks, swim in the pond, play Cat Monopoly and I will finally tackle my summer reading list.
I have a laptop, but no TV.
I can’t wait.
To come back to civilization.
