The Ultimate Joy of Vacations…returning Home!

It is true, for me at least, there is a joy in returning home. Not because I am anxious to get back to work or to deal with all the mundane tasks of everyday life but because I am a creature of comfort and I like my things and my space.

There are also lots of surprises awaiting you when you get home. In my case that includes going through the mail and listening to my messages. Some of which are those dreadful realities we must face but others can be fun or interesting things. On the interesting side is the above photo which is the state I found my office in when I arrived for work this morning. My faithful and loyal staff had spend 3 lunch hours last week wrapping practically everything in my office in plastic wrap. Now to some thing might be a hassle and might just be annoying but in my case they had to straighten up my chaotic office in order to get everything wrapped so there is an upside to it. I figure I will unwrap things as I need the rate today is going I should be done by say November or so.

On the almost exciting but not so much side is that the Humax DVD Recorder with Tivo we ordered from Weaknees before we went on vacation turns out to be defective and I had to shell out cash to ship it back to the retailer I bought it from this morning. The UPS store is getting an arm and a leg these days for shipping! So far my experiences with Weaknees are mixed but I am reserving judgement until they resovle this issue of the defective unit I received.

Of course I’ve written before about the fun in returning home to see what Tivo has recorded for you. This is especially fun after a full week off. We spent several hours going through and watching or deleting things that had been recorded while we were away.

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
