The point is that when going on vacation specifically with the intent of doing outdoor activities and to a place completely geared around that, it's pretty frustrating when you get rained out. If I wanted to sit on my ass inside all day, I'd just stay home--it's free and I don't have to drive 5 hours to get there. No implication as to the quality of the company.

waitwhat? Dude, I'm probably not the best person to give marital advice, but that's not good. Box up the little stitches and send them out here overnight and I'll watch them. My daughter is ready to start babysitting anyway.

But seriously, make it happen.

Wife and I are going to the Adirondacks this weekend for Memorial Day. The forecast is rain all day every day with a high of 52 and below freezing every night. The fuck?

Seriously contemplating just canceling the trip and staying home. Would have to pay a penalty on the lodging, but I don't know that I want to drive up to the mountains to sit inside for 3 days.

I know it seems like every weekend is fucking shit. I am sick of it. Rain Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Monday. Just awful.

To make matters worse the forecast is constantly changing, like substantially by the minute. I have no idea how to dress or anything.

Fortunately, you've come to the right place.

dood, i could not agree more. the wife has a very hard time leaving the kids though, and she is a fantastic mother, so i dont push the issue. i mean, id drop them off at amtrak tonight and send them your way with t-shirts marked, "bring me to lawyerdad and his awesome daughter." but the wife would have none of that.

we are planning to get away end of july, just need to clear the date with the boss.

I am basically serious. My life is made up of many components but I cannot say I have some over arching thing I've figured out called, "What I want to do with my life." As far as having a good time you have to realize some components of your life are going to suck, i.e. work, and hopefully more components will be good times. I guess framing it like that I can say I've figured out what I want to do with my life which is I want more of my life to be enjoyable than suck.

My constant flip flopping around of desired locations is exactly indicative of how indecisive and lost I feel right now.

As it relates to "what I want to do in life," there seems to be a particularly strong sentiment amongst my generation that you can have it all (i.e., you can have a job that you enjoy and pays the bills). Granted, this isn't unique to my generation, but it's definitely echoed a lot more frequently. I think this is part of the reason why we're seeing so many start ups, because the idea is you'll find a way to monetize something you enjoy and are passionate about and potentially cash out if possible.

You definitely have a more realistic approach to life but it admittedly does sound a bit depressing on paper (that your job will most likely suck and continue to suck) and slightly defeatist.

Tl;dr: Give me a job as a test driver for BMW's M division and I will die a happy man!

Lovely weather? Abundant hot chicks? How was the traffic / driving situation?

Well here's hoping it changes for the better by this weekend.

Yikes. Definitely glad to hear you're taking some time away. It's hard to get it to work, but it's critical (at least for us). In fact, MrsG and I will be spending Sat/Sun night without our guy this weekend. It's not exactly going to be relaxing - we're both in a wedding in the city we just moved away from, which means we'll be busy with both wedding responsibilities and wrapping up the house - but it will be nice to have the adult time when we're not running around.

I don't think I articulated my joke well, but point taken.

yes, i think there was a passing of ships in the night on that one. i understand what both of you meant though. both were correct, just addressing different points. imo.

Just goes to prove our generation even feels entitled to a job that is fun and creative. A bunch of pussies we are. By the way, startups are the new ultimate get rich quick schemes. Most people aren't passionate and just want a pay out, that is why most of them are failures.

I mean a lot of boring, or hard jobs still have great purposes in the way the world works. I feel that people forget to look at the bigger picture in their job and the value that it does create in the world. If it didn't have value to somebody, or something it wouldn't exist. Maybe I romanticize the workplace (which is weird) but it does put things into perspective.

Well it's Orange County, so your first 2 questions should be answered already. Traffic wasn't that bad when I was there, but things are pretty close together and parking is a bit of a mess.
