It's a Norwegian to the Western Caribbean, we didn't bother setting up any cell coverage, so I haven't heard from them, but I hope they're having fun. She left from Buffalo, so she should fly back to Buffalo on Sunday, and drive back to Rochester Sunday or Monday.
It's been more exhausting than I remember. The last time she did this was after her dad died, and there was no school. Now I need to get fourteen_year_old to school by 8 am, making it most logical for me to get up at 6 am (a half hour early), to get my shower in, so I can go straight to work.
While fourteen_year_old is good about emptying the dish washer and scooping the cat litter during the week, the rest of the domestic chores fall on me. I really need to get a few loads of laundry done.
It was a good excuse not to plan a trip to Kentucky though, for our newest Windows release. This is the same sw that I had to drive to and from Lowell the last week of January for. The quality is not where I like it.
Just before the trip to Lowell I took a two night trip to a boardgaming convention in Niagara Falls. I think this was my fifth con, but the first one I ever slept over. My wife said I could go when she was feeling guilty about the cruise. She didn't like it when the Lowell trip came up, as we barely saw each other.
It was cheaper than I expected, thanks to the exchange rate, plus, who the heck goes to Niagara Falls in January? I also ate out less, and survived more on granola bars. I got too used to being reimbursed, eventually, for my meals. That said, I ate a lot of granola bars too and from Lowell, time was off the essence and I didn't have time to stop for a meal.
I played hours of hex and counter wargames, Friday night was a long Panzer Grenadier scenario while Saturday was learning Reluctant Enemies. Sunday I was able to get into two games of A Study in Emerald, thanks to friendly Torontonians. I lost of course, but the second game I did have a strategy that could have possibly one (sacrificing agents to Yog Sothoth for one VP each).
I'm still not sure if I'll go again, it was only $200 USD, but I don't know if it was worth it.
