Vacation to Austin – An Introspection

Texas Capitol

Vacation, I have not really taken one in about 3 years. A few day trips here and there maybe a day or two at home but an actual honest to goodness vacation is not something me and the family had done in quite a while.

Man I could tell you stories about this weird phobia. My next greatest fear is one that always skits on the edge of my life, threatening to be come a reality. I fear becoming an old cranky grumpy …
