Benedict Cumberland

The family and I are on a mini-vacation in scenic Cumberland, MD.  I say 'mini-vacation', but I am learning that calling something a vacation while you are accompanied by a two-year-old is a bit of a joke, as there is nothing whatsoever relaxing about spending any time with a two-year-old.  But, at least it is busy and stressful and tiring somewhere where other people cook your meals, make your bed, and do your dishes.

The Jeanners was in Atlanta for 3 days chilling in a company-paid-for awesome hotel while I slaved away at home as a working single dad.  Perhaps I'm underplaying the amount of work she had to do while she was gone and overplaying the amount of suckiness I endured while she was away, but still, you get the idea.  Poor Dan.

What else?  Can't believe it's almost fucking July.  I need to have a scene design for Midsummer done soon.  Other than that, I'm pleasantly surprised that I've made it this far into the summer without wanting to kill myself or my co-workers.  Some moments of minor annoyance, yes, but nothing terrible.

Let me take this opportunity to say that there's really nothing I miss about working at the Nobes.

Tomorrow:  some hiking, some trainspotting, maybe some more swimming.  Gonna try to find someplace with vegetables for lunch.
