Tomorrow Michelle’s folks, Matt and Marge will move in. Completely coincidentally, as they are moving in, we will be driving out of town for vacation. I’m glad for them to be able to have our house to themselves for a full week – that way they can settle in at their own pace and have some quiet time alone. Marge likes her alone time, so this will be good, if temporary. I’m really hoping that she is able to feel at home with us until they figure out what’s what. Matt’s a super flexible, roll with the punches sort of guy, so I’m sure he’ll be o.k. They have blessed us in so many ways over the years. I’m looking forward to giving back a little bit.

As for Michelle and I . . . we’re driving up to Napa Valley, which is north of San Francisco for those of you who don’t know. We’ll be stopping on the way to say hello to a friend, and then going to one of our favorite getaways. Napa is a beautiful place, with lots of scenic roads, amazing restaurants, and a million different wineries, should you choose to sip the fruit of the vine. Even for those who don’t like wine, the wineries are cool to go to – some have art galleries, most have tours, some have great picnic grounds. Mostly, it’s just a really relaxing place to go. It’s one of those vacations where you don’t come home exhausted because you did too much.

Next Thursday is Michelle’s birthday. I really want it to be a good one. I’m glad we’ll be away for it. She needs some down time in a big way. Work’s been a major stress factory lately, our escrow situation has weighed heavily on her, and oh by the way, her parents’ home just burned down. I’m hoping this is a refreshing time for her to replenish.

Speaking of escrow, though, we got some pretty hopeful news from our realtor today. Our buyers may be ready to cut a deal to cancel the contract. That would be a huge huge huge relief for us.

I doubt I’ll have occasion to blog while I’m away, but if I run into an opportunity, maybe I’ll sit down for a quick hello.
