Rob has been gone since yesterday afternoon and won't back back until Sunday night. I always envied him when I was working of the "free time" he had during the evenings when the kids were in bed. Well, I gotta tell ya, it's not what it's cracked up to be. The house is very, very quiet. There's only so much TV or movies you can watch, and it's really hard to not fill the boredom by eating. The time difference up here really sucks, because it's only 10PM here and would be a good time to catch up with friends, since LD rates are substancially cheaper (it's .48/min before 6 up here). But, since we're 3 hours behind everyone else, i don't think people would appreciate a phone call at 1AM!
