I've been neglecting my blog and my friends' blogs. This is something I feel badly about, but work and family needs dictate and this brings no returns, so it's the most expendable. I try to average at least one post per day, however, as I find it a welcome chance to opine in a relatively harmless fashion.
My good friend at work got married this past weekend, and the in-laws were in town to babysit. Yes, they drove 900 miles to watch the kids for one night and then left (OK, they stayed for 4 days, but they'll be driving for just as many days, so it's basically a wash). I like when my in-laws are here, however I also find myself always a little stressed out anymore when they're here. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with a sense of obligation to entertain - they're family, but they aren't "my" family in that I didn't grow up with them. With that and my basketball picks going south, I've been a little stressed. But I still was able to grill last night (hamburgers and hot dogs - yum!). And in all, it was a good weekend.
