'Generation Me'

a book review

I just finished a thought-provoking book that takes a look at data collected over the past couple generations. I'm glad I read it, and am eager to recommend it and discuss it with anyone...

My happy place is ...

... anywhere my kids are happy

In this case, my happy place was a very kid-friendly winery in Paso Robles last month (I've been meaning to post these pics for a while). I could use a reminder of happier times. Right now, I'm in the third day of a gnarly stomach bug that's forced me to scrap my travel plans. I was going to take the girls up to Santa Rosa for a week, but now I can't stray more than 10 feet from the bathroom... And this is the fourth time since Thanksgiving that sickness has ruined vacation/party plans for us!

On the flip side, I feel a peace about scrapping the travel plans, and I know something good will come of my staying home this week. Maybe some more blog posts, at the very least...
