We're back - had a great time seeing everyone and doing everything. :)

I have nifty presents from Lake George for other people, and nifty hairsticks and chainmail chokers from the renfaire for me.

Also a rather large case of apathy - really, I ought to learn to take off the day after vacation, too. Although with the cat and the dog, the house isn't exactly 'quiet time' anymore, either*.

In a nutshell:
Wandered Manhattan and saw Amy and Mike's new house (shiny!). Drove up with Mom and hiked around North Lake and Kaaterskill Falls. Ate a large quantity of wild blueberries. Spent a couple of days at the lake, took boat rides, went for aimless drives, wandered around Prospect Mountain. Watched Laura, which I'd been meaning to see for years (excellent movie). Drove to vkrafft's and went to Sterling Renfaire. Ate salt potatoes and steak-on-a-stake, saw jousting, disobedient red-tailed hawks, a sword swallower and an ironic circus-performer's balancing act. Caught the plane home on Sunday.

Flights were on time. Got a ride home from the airport.Kevin took spectacular care of the house, so we didn't have a mess or anything to deal with. Put stuff away. Hooked up the new** TV. Realized that the impending destruction of the old entertainment center meant "What do we do with the DVDs?!" Went to Best Bai Buy and picked up a black & stainless steel wire contraption which promises to hold something like 360 DVDs. Assembled it. Sorted DVDs. Filled contraption: I blame the VCR tapes. Had ravioli on the couch. Slept.

Bowling tonight -- wish me luck!


* I used to be able to put them both outside. Have I mentioned Ouiser's recently-acquired trick of sneaking under the chain link fence into the neighbor's yard? He's very proud of it: I think he can do it in 2.5 seconds flat. So, 'til we get that fixed he's not allowed outside unless on a leash.

** It doesn't work, yet. The appointment with the repair guy is this afternoon, and he promises that he can fix it. I still maintain that 56" is WAY too f**king large for our little living room and consequently looks completely absurd, but... gift horse, mouth, etc.
