Home Sweet Home

Posted by rdub in Life

First day back at work, and I can’t help feel a sense of relief.  Today is the first night Athena and I come home to an empty house.  It’s nice to be able to unwind before being bombarded with family (we’ve seen non-stop family for the entire duration of our 2 week vacation), but it’s also bitter-sweet having to say goodbye to everyone.

We spent the evening doing absolutely nothing: I built a fire, she made us Top Ramen, we watched a movie, and now she’s casually rehearsing for her audition this Saturday.  Fate has cursed her with a small cold, but I’m helping her with whatever I can – Flonase, warm honey water, and by leaving the room when she’s really belting it out.  Eventually, I’ll convince her to record her practice sessions – it’s really the only way to learn.  Sing into a mic, record it, and listen to what comes out the other end – it’s often quite enlightening.

I think I’m gunna chill out for a bit, and just listen.

    Don’t get me wrong, we were both glad to have you. It’s just nice to have some downtime again. 😉

    Athena’s slowly starting to get over the cold.

    Hope you had a great time, though!

    PS: I didn’t win that contest – some lame photos did… 🙁
