Weekly Status: Week T-1

So, LOST wrapped up this week. I'm glad I have it on Tivo, because in the immortal words of John Locke, "We're going to have to watch that, again." Various other season finales are scheduled for this week, so the cut-off time is quickly approaching.

I expect the final throwing of the switch to be somewhat anti-climactic since we've already cut off all but the family room set, and that room is rarely visited anyway. We're already settling into the new approach.

Soccer season is wrapping up which gives us a little more time on our hands. This weekend was the first in a few weeks where we weren't wall-to-wall with soccer games. Kate had a 4:00pm Saturday game (a brilliant win if we do say so ourselves), and that was it.

So, given that we've had a little taste of the future, I'll tell you already when I miss it the most. It's the little quiet times after the day has run it's course just prior to sacking in for the night. Those 30 or so minutes between finishing that last task and slipping into bed when you check tomorrow's weather or watch the monologue for The Daily Show. That little time frame is when I found myself asking "Well,.. now what?" What daily ritual will need to replace that unwinding time?

I've got it! It's something I've always wanted to do. I can use this time to treat my soul to some quiet, inward-looking meditation. You know? I could really get in touch with my inner, peaceful self.

HA! HA! Ha! Ha!... I almost managed to say that with a straight face...

    If you are looking for your inner self, you might want to look under the pergola. He might be wearing a funny hat and holding a cold beverage. Just trying to save you some searching time.
