We are leaving at some point to visit Cronyboy’s fam. I like them. But. The lakeside PNW suburb where his parents live usually makes me a little stir crazy because I am used to being in the city where there are sidewalks and places to ride bikes. It’s pretty there, lots of trees, but also no sidewalks and lots of hills (= easy for cars to surprise you) and not much open space to play in (unless you play golf!). Plus we will be in a 3-bedroom house with 6 other people, two of whom are kids (6 and 8) away from home (IME kids are better in their natural habitat).

But today I am psyched because:

  1. Highs will be below 75 F on all the days we are there! (It’s been up in the 90s here, and we don’t have AC.)
  2. The kids just started Pokemon Go this week, and I did too so that we would have something to bond over. And it’s fun! Looking forward to catching things that aren’t pigeons and rats.

I will still have work to do throughout our stay (we come back Tuesday) so it’s not a total vacation, but I will be able to get a lot done in the car, I hope (it’s a four-hour drive).

What are you up to this weekend?
