I took a month off from the blog. Unintentionally. Basically I discovered that Kerbal Space Program had added a career mode since the last time I tried it, and got extremely focused on the game. Like I did when I first started playing Minecraft and again when I started playing with mods.
I’m also just back from a week’s vacation with my family. Going on any kind of vacation with kids is really just a different kind of work though. Not relaxing. It was still fun even though we had some unfortunate adventures on the first day of the trip. Thing One got stung on the hand and we discovered that Thing Two gets car sick. Twice. Thankfully the rest of the trip wasn’t nearly so interesting, in the we’ll laugh about it someday sense of the word.
Even though I was only gone for a week, I’ve still returned to a tons of RSS articles waiting to be read, YouTube videos to be watched, and DVRed shows to catch up on. I feel like I need a s second vacation to catch up from my first one.
