Busy 8 weeks coming

This month is the start of a very busy couple of months in this house. Yesterday Jessica and I dropped Aaron off at the airport – he headed to South Dakota for a client meeting, back on Thursday. Then the following Monday I ship him off to Boston for a conference only to join him that weekend for a small getaway, without child. The following week (back at home) Aaron has a conference to attend in Grand Rapids and then he’s off to Oklahoma somewhere at the end of September. The 3rd weekend in October we’re camping.
So maybe this month will go really fast? Or really really slow. Yesterday was a little difficult, Jessica wanted to go on the plane with her dad and hasn’t stopped talking about how he was on one. She knew right away in the morning that something was going on – because he generally isn’t home when she wakes up in the morning – and I made breakfast for all three of us. Then he STAYED around and packed. She was blown away. And also very prone to fits of temporary rage at all this disrupting of the norm.
We got through it.
On the other hand – or different subject maybe, I’m really very excited to go to Boston. I was there with my parents when I was in high school. Loved it. We still have to find a place to stay – all the sites and reviews are a little overwhelming. I just want a clean hotel close to stuff. Hopefully today I’ll tackle that one. We’re going to see Wicked and do alot of site-seeing and per the recommendation of a friend who lived there, we’re going to eat at some pretty awesome places. If you have any ideas or recommendations – what are you waiting for?! Tell me!

  1. Lots of things to do in Boston, from museums, theater, tours, galleries, shopping, historical. You should probably consider the Freedom Trail – this takes you through many of the historical things including the Bunker Hill Monument, Old North Church, faniel Hall, and USS Constitution to name a few. There are a variety of Harbor cruises – a couple are dinner/dance cruises. Whale watches – they’re migrating now, so there should be a good showing. Boston has a good Science Museum, Aquarium, and a neat computer museum along with the John F. Kennedy Library/Museum.
    Depending on where you are going to be, maybe we can meet up for lunch or dinner one day. E-mail me…or call with your location.
    Check out http://www.thebostonchannel.com . They periodically do a show on ‘the best of’ things, so you should be able to find reasonably priced good places to eat. They archive this info on their site.

  2. Thanks – we’d love to see you for lunch or dinner. I think we’ll try whale watching and we want to see WICKED too … no big plans yet. But some site seeing and tours do sound good. We did make hotel reservations – we’ll be staying at the Hotel Marlowe. It said it was near Harvard Square.
    Have a good week and hopefully we’ll see you soon!
