John has been on vacation since Sunday afternoon. He would tell you that he is "traveling for work". Pssshh...let's look at the evidence and you decide:

1. 4 hour plane ride during which, I assume, he was able to listen to, read or watch whatever he desired. Likely the only interruption was by someone asking him if he wanted a snack or drink.

2. He is in a part of the country were yesterday the average temperature was 85 degrees. It was 25 degrees here yesterday. He would argue that he wasn't able to enjoy this warm weather because he was in a conference room all day. I would argue that it doesn't matter because I was inside all day with a three year old and a dog with anxiety issues - and it was cold.

3. He is sleeping in a fancy hotel room, which I imagine has room service - more people to bring him snacks and drinks. I also imagine the hotel doesn't ask him to clean up the kitchen, take out the trash and the dog and bath a small child.

Sounds like a vacation to me.

In the interest of full disclosure I do have to admit that he did miss out on some fun things:

1. Another trip to aquarium where Hollis saw his first 3D movie.

2. Free inauguration donuts at Krispy Kreme.

3. Hugs, kisses, I love yous and construction work.

Is it just me, or does Hollis look like Drew Carey with those glasses?

Stacy, I say almost the same things to Mike when he travels. Oh, honey, it was a tough meeting?? about switching places and I'll take the free meals where I don't have to cut anyone's food (or cook it, clean the dishes) and you take the fights between the kids, the Hannah drama, and all the other fun here :-)

Stacy, it's Stacie Rabinowitz in case you couldn't figure it out. My the by, these boys don't know a business trip until they've worked a Phi Mu convention under Terri, right? 20 hour days beginning at 4 AM??
