I noticed last week that there were some in my neighborhood, so on Saturday I told him we were going to go out after dinner to see some bugs whose "bottoms light up." We had a blast! He was totally into it. I brought a Mason jar to put them in, and we were "lightning bug hunters" searching the neighborhood.

Is your wife upset about you using the glassware from your wedding to catch bugs?

The wife's commute is now a 10min drive down from a 45min drive. Her train commute is under 20min. I can always pick her up after work now too. There's this huge dog farm/camp day care thing near my wife's work that's nice (they take the dogs on hikes and they run around the huge farm during the day) so the dogs are covered for exercise/play too.
Sounds great! cheers.gif

In about 45.5 hours I leave for my first real summer vacation since 2008. I am beyond stoked.

Also, I just met the lady I hired to walk my dogs. She's probably around 60 and in really great shape, has a ton of energy and has a weatherbeaten face from spending her life in the sun, instead of a saggy old person face. Kind of made me wish I had chosen a career where I worked outside.

Gulf Shores, Alabama. Rented a huge condo right on the beach. A bunch of family will be there.

The redneck riviera. But the beaches are beautiful, the fishing and seafood are phenomenal, and there are a couple of great golf courses. Plus, since it's Alabama, I won't feel self conscious going shirtless after 6 days of gorging on beer and fried shrimp

Yeah, I used to have that same reaction, but we had some work tied to the area and several of my coworkers have since taken vacations down there (all the way from IL).

Sounds like quite a nice place (if not a little too precrash 90's/00's condo-boomy on the coast).

It's a bit quieter and more family than, say, Pensacola or Panama City. If I were in my 20s and single, I would probably go elsewhere. But I'm taking my girlfriend and my daughter, and my parents and brother, plus a handful of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews are all coming in, so it's perfect for what I have in mind.
