Enjoying Vacation

Ah what a feeling it was this morning to not head off to work and to get to sit in front of my computer all day and play around.  Wait!  Sit at my computer?  Thats what I do at work all day…  Oh well…

Actually, it is quite different.  This is fun.  I have a whole list of things that have been stacking up on my websites that I have been wanting to attend to and just havent found the time.  Thats my plan for this vacation from work until Jan 2.  Excluding the trip to the cabins in the mountains of New Mexico, of course.

I am still hoping to launch my new local community site around the first of the year, but am kind of beholding here to Suzanne.  I need some artwork, photos and data that she is supposed to be working on.  Thats more up her alley than mine.  She is wanting to work on a review of the recent cruise for Cruise Talk.  She also is the one who did the photos of the cruise here on Mr Papa’s World.

I have also come across of wealth of new family history information so I hope to make good progress in the genealogy department too.  Right now, I am spending a fair amount of time updating the source information in the records for a lot of the data that I have.  So, it wont be immediately visible but will provide a trail as to where the data came from.

Suzanne and the kids have a busy dance week ahead with the Xmas recital next weekend and thus I should have ample night time to work my computer magic also.  Only drawback to my vacation this year is that the kids arent off from school very much. Usually we coincide better and play a bunch of boardgames.  I guess we will save that for New Mexico.


  1. Hey Steve…I am envious of the vacation. I guess I sort of had my extended vacation back in Jul/Aug, but it hardly seemed like a vacation (unpacking and getting settled). You did it right….kicked it off with a great cruise, followed up by some quality time at home. I plan to take the week between Christmas and New Years and that is all. We finally decided to stay in Virginia, rather than drive to Vermont…so it is should be somewhat relaxing…


  2. I would imagine going to Vermont and only having a week off would make it seem like no vacation even though you probably would have fun. I think I mentioned it in a different post, but we will go to New Mexico and spend 4 or 5 days in cabins with Suzanne’s family between Xmas and New Years. I will miss the time at home, but it should be fun. Its only about 4 hours away so not a big drive either.

  1. […] This vacation sure has been nice – didnt I say that before?  Anyways, it would have been a bit nicer if the kids were off of school this week, but they dont get off until tomorrow.  Usually, we get a couple of weeks off together at the end of the year.  They actually get the first week of January off but I will be back to work.  We will both be off next week, but we will be travelling to Cloudcroft, NM for a few days in a cabin, so its not quite the same, but still fun.
