What is depression…

I have never depressed in my life that I can remember,unless you count a teenage breakup. So I might be asking stupid questions.Writing this more for myself then anything else.

Whet on vacation with the wife after she had been gone for 3 weeks and it was a hard time at home.My daughter had broken her foot so it was a busy 3 weeks while she was gone dealing with the daughter and grandson and dog.

We go on vacation to Fiji and she has to go to the Philippians from Fiji for work. I understand this saved her her 20 hours flight time but we had never flown home from vacation alone before. I left the day before.

I started missing her that day because I knew she would be gone for 3 more weeks.Now i’m home and I don’t want to deal with the normal everyday things that need to get done.I’m drinking more (that could be the reason for this).

I don’t want to post in public how much I miss her because that might her feel bad,but I want to talk to someone to talk about it with.

Last Vacation of the Year (Fiji)

The vacation started with a drive from Reno to San Francisco,we didn’t need to be there till 10 pm at night for our flight so it was a nice easy drive,no need to rush. Rented a car for the one way trip and ended up getting a Jeep, very nice ride and I had never driven one before.

Rental Jeep

The flight was a little over 10 hours and before we boarded we had a few glass’s of wine and a great meat and cheese platter. Also I picked up some NyQuil tablets with the intention of sleeping on the flight. And boy did I sleep,wife said I was out for like 5 hours. Only the 2nd time I slept on a plane.

After the flight

Customs wasn’t to long it took a while for the luggage to come out and the area they have to collect it was packed with people at 4:45 am local time.We had arranged transportation from the airport to The View Villa’s on the coral coast of the island.I didn’t know that the villas were 92 km’s away,the driver was taking the coastal road and there were a “few” villages we would pass through.This would have a slow down to 30 km per hour or less for the speed bumps and by villages I mean shacks on the side of the road.

View from our room

After the hour and a half tip on the van from the airport we got to villas and they have so exceeded my expectations. The View Fiji The view you get from the villa’s is awesome there are only 4 villa’s at the resort,so you only have less people to deal with.When we got here there was only one other couple here.The villa we got has the private pool and the outdoor shower (don’t know why we don’t do this more in the US) I loved the outdoor shower.

Private pool

This was the vacation I was looking for, we had only one trip planned to a private island but the rest of the week was us doing nothing.

Some of the views from the beach on the south coast.

Found out the day we were leaving the resort is closing for good. The owner is going to turn it into his home and retire. Its to bad it was a wonderful place and the staff he had could not have been nicer.

I will have to visit Fiji again…

Dawn Out of town

So it’s a week with the wife out of town, this time its Thailand with her sister. It was suppose to be with our daughter till Alex broke her foot. The holiday tip was a birthday trip for both of them but that changed real fast.

So I was not looking forward to this week as I had the grandson to take to school and pick up at the end of his day while trying to work. Withe his mom breaking her foot now I have 2 people and a dog to deal with. It’s not a bad thing having Alex at the house its been a while since she has spent any time at home. Just going a little stir crazy being in the house so much.

Dawn and Joyce look like they are having a great time, playing with the elephants is got me so jealous but the flight took ms of a day to get there. The photo’s I am seeing look awesome.

Off to see Hugh Jackman

So the wife got us tickets to see Hugh Jackman one man show in Vegas this weekend. I love him as a actor and have seen bits and pieces of some of his shows where he is dancing and singing.

Got to Las Vegas late on Friday night, I was surprised I stayed up so late 1am is way past my bedtime. Vegas temperature around this time of year 110F during the day so you want to avoid going outside for long.

The trip was a good time and I came home with money in my pocket,my son had to driver back home ( 4 hours ) with a nasty hangover…lol.

Mother’s Day at The Peppermill

Its always nice to have a stay-cation once in a while, even better when the rooms are free. Well not exactly free if you count in the cost of playing the slots, but that can vary also. Not much into playing the slots today but the wife will be more then willing to play for me.

Peppermill Reno

It’s a nice hotel and we know a lot of the bartenders so it makes it fun to hangout. I have to work from here for the next 3 days so I get to people watch and hear all the stories about drunks on the gaming floor.

Monday: I had to go to work while the wife had her spa day. My day didn’t go so well dropped a printer on my right ankle and a battery backup unit on my left ankle.

Her day

Well all in all she had a good weekend and was very relaxed when she left. I think it was nice to get home to my own bed.
