Somewhere along the line Cathy and I got into the habit of occasionally taking separate vacations. I suppose it was easier than always packing up the kids or getting a multi-day baby sitter.
This week Cathy is in Montreal for five days, staying at a friend's place and seeing the sites. Apparently Montreal is even more cosmopolitan than Storrs, Connecticut!
The boys and I have enjoyed spending more time together and being in a different routine. Lots of yard work, swimming, X-box, and general goofing around. Today we're going to go visit a WWII submarine.
Still, it will be nice to have Cathy back in 2 days, four hours, and 23 minutes.
