Here it is…September 2009 and I can't believe how long it's been since we took a real vacation. There have been quite a few "go out to CA and the family does stuff while daddy works all day and night and squeezes in a couple rounds of golf" trips…but no real vacation so to speak.
So this year, no matter what it takes, we're going to take the first vacation we've had since Steph and I went to Germany in 1998 together (pre-kids). After that, start up life took over and it's been an awesome ride every since…but I've been married to work/phone/laptop/email/connectivity.
So, here's fair warning. December 18-January 3 we're gone somewhere warm and toasty with no work on the agenda except a stack of books and some sand toys.
