Drove to Cincinnati

Posted by steve | General Commentary | Tuesday 7 April 2009 6:54 am

Made the drive from Omaha to Cincinnati yesterday. Long drive. I was surprised that we encountered no snow along the way. With exception of road construction and numerous speed traps I saw, traveling conditions were great. We arrived around 1:00 AM last night.

Melissa, Nicholas and I are visiting friends and family during his Spring Break. I haven’t been home to see Mom for about 2 years. It will be good to spend time with her. We’re also going to drop in on Uncle Hermann this week. His wife past away recently and we were unable to come to the funeral. He’s a good uncle to have.

Of course I’ll also stop and spend time with my long time friend Paul. We’ll do some “geek stuff” together and probably also get together with our wives for an evening of conversation and board games.

I know that Melissa also wants to see Mom again, although she’s been here several times without me. She plans to visit some friends too.

Nicholas, the “robot master”, will spend most of this trip with his Dad and siblings. I know he’s looking forward to that very much.

Unfortunately we have to leave on Saturday, so we will not be here for Easter Sunday.

I haven’t taken a real vacation away from work in a while, so I’m looking forward to that with this trip too.

    Perhaps former Ohmartians should gather for lunch!

    I love the idea, but there’s not really enough time to pull that off with the few days I have left this week. The way things look now, I have something going on every afternoon and evening until we leave on Saturday morning.
