Flying out today

Today’s the day we’re flying out to the UK to see the family. And it’s going to be a bit of a stressful day, because I didn’t do anything last night to help get ready.

Man, I had a whole list of things I was going to do around the house, a bunch of stuff I was going to prep for work today, you name it. But after I put my kid to bed, all I ended up doing was watching an episode of NewsRadio and falling asleep. I missed out on a party I’d hoped to visit, and I definitely didn’t get anything accomplished at home.

Which is fine, I suppose, because sleep in itself was at least an investment. Lord knows I’m not going to get any tonight, on a “red eye” flight with a toddler. At least this way, I can be a sharp and helpful parent, instead of being an exhausted burden to my wife.

See you in a couple of weeks, Toronto! Have fun and look after each other while I’m gone. And don’t touch my stuff.
