Parents Road Trip

Fredericksburg, VA 9:43 PM My computer and I are at the back corner of the hotel bar. Captain and Coke is our companion. A few guests of different age ranges are milling about. My parents are at the room getting ready for bed. A platinum blonde woman has looked over at me a few times haha. As we get older, life gets faster. For me, that means the opportunity to spend quality time with my parents has gone down. I currently live in the same city as them, so we usually have Sunday dinner. I may see them once more during the week. And we are always together over the holidays. But I don’t get...

Rochester, NY 11:25 PM It’s been a busy day (two interviews to start and end the day, and emails along with phone calls). My brain is full and I’m tired (but I’m typing).

Charlotte, NC 8:02 AM Being a traveler, the starts to a visit are always filled with such anticipation, excitement and potential. The end of the trip always brings the downer of saying goodbye (today I have to return the rental car [VW Passat = nice] and catch my return flight). Charlotte has been great. I spent a lot of time with my aunt, uncle, cousin and his two girls. We went bowling (I rolled one game = sub 100 = frustration), chowed down on an awesome dim sum feast and I even stepped out of my comfort zone to take on one of the girls in Just Dance on the Wii (she won – and they posted...
