Recharge my butt

I spent the weekend in Chicago at a family wedding. Rather, I spent it at an inlaw’s wedding. Not much different, but certainly a bit different. Specifically, at my inlaw’s, there is a significant amount of beer. This, fortunately, is a good thing.

I come from a smallish family. We don’t really do much together as a group. My wife’s family, on the other hand, does everything together. Friday night? Together. Church? Together. BBQ in the backyard? Oh, you betcha together. This isn’t really a bad thing – just something that I am not used to.

Weddings are yet another example of an event that the family does together. For me, this is exhausting. Therefore, I have been spending the week trying to catch up on rest from my “vacation”. Hopefully, I will be able to catch up this weekend – I am keeping it particularly free to ensure that I will have lots of time to sleep in.

Aren’t vacations supposed to be used for ‘recharging your batteries’?
