Vacation mode finally kicks in …


Our 3-week summer vacation started on Monday of this week, but Dr. Darling had been up in Halmstad helping her Mom with some stuff since Saturday night, and I had a few last-minute things to take care of for work that morning, plus a Skype meeting for a national board I’m sitting on Monday night.

The Swede and I are back in Vikingland after a whirlwind Thanksgiving trip to the US.  We spent about four days in my hometown in northwestern Indiana, four days with extended US family in northeast Ohio, and four days with two of my best friends in New York City. (NYC photos are trickling in to my …

It started last Wednesday night when I got the following text message from Dr. Darling: “I just threw up…while sitting on the can…  😥 ” …

What three-day weekend?!

Turns out even three-day weekends go by fast when you sleep through 30 of the 72 hours available! And that was just me…Dr. Darling slept a lot more than that.  In fact, she’s zonked out on the couch right now and has been off-and-on for most of the evening. (Okay, most of the weekend, really.) …
