Between Daisho Con
and Thanksgiving, I've spent more time in Wisconsin these last two weeks than I have at home. While both trips to the state I consider my true home were more than worth it, this amount of travel can be downright exhausting and I'm glad that Crysta and I are back in the moderate comfort of our apartment.
Thanksgiving itself was a nice affair at my parent's house in the suburbs of Milwaukee. It was a small gathering, only six of us really, but the food was delicious and the company entertaining. Frankly, it was probably the best Thanksgiving I've had in years.
The lovely wife and I stuck around Milwaukee for a few days, finding time to hang out with both my family and Crysta's brother. Eventually though it came time to hit the road, and take the Illinois tollway home for the last time until Christmas (hopefully).
In truth, all I want to do right now is collapse and sleep - but sadly the "vacation" is over. I have to re-enter the real world and get things done again. Time to get back to everything I put off before going out of town in the first place... which isn't that much, as I was finally smart enough to work ahead on my own projects for once.
It's still nice to be home again though, be it ever so humble.
