Work Life Balance

I'm searching for it, when I can find the time or have the energy left over after work. Irony, huh? If you missed my rambling, my apologies - I'll do what I can to get back to more rambling here.

11 more days to LA con, 5 more days until my trip to Las Vegas and 20 days until I see my son again. I'll take a laptop along and try to blog about the trip along the way.

Speaking of my son, the trip to Georgia for his Family Day was great. We shopped and saw a movie and talked a lot. Turns out he had completed the basic training portion that day and entering the next phase, the advanced individual training. He'll finish that next week and then they have recovery where they get the barracks and equipment ready for the next group. The two events we are going to see at the end of the month are the Turning Blue which is where he gets the blue infantry cord and the final graduation ceremony. His next step is to go into Airborne training and he'll be in 'Airborne hold' until his class is ready to start.

My boy:

Your son looks really handsome, Dawno :)

Good family times like that are such a gift, aren't they?

When did he become a man? It seems like just yesterday that he was a cute kid-guy in baggy pants...

*hugs*

Congrats on raising a fine son. Summers in Georgia can sure make a boy homesick.

Good luck with the balance thing - I've no advice...

Geez, Dawno.
I'd tell you to 'get a life' but then you couldn't afford to live in California.
Sometimes there is no balance.
