Well, Brownies, I am well on my way back to Ohio after a weekend in St. Louis. As always, it’s a mixed bag of feelings.
Spending time with the parental units and my sister is fun and good. I haven’t lived near them for the past 18 years or so and our visits are relegated mostly to holiday weekends and various life events like funerals and graduations. I also left my rugrats to visit for the next six weeks. That’ll suck for a week as I adjust to the quiet house, then it’ll be awesome for a month as I cherish the quiet house and get to have actual dates with my wife again, then it’ll suck for the last week as I start to miss them again.
So leaving is hard, but damn if it’s not nice to know I’ll be home soon. To see my wife and my dogs, sleep in my bed, and just back into the routine of my daily life. But before that, it’s an 8 hour drive, and once I get closer to Columbus, I’ll have to detour around the effered up bridge.
In the meantime, enjoy these pictures that I’ve posted here and there over various media outlets (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat) this weekend.
