Exhaustion In A Good Cause!

You know what kind of week I've had. Too many hours. Too little sleep. So what do I do?

This morning, GF and I set the alarm for 4:30a.m. We had an early flight to Jacksonville, FL. Why are we in Jacksonville? It's my Dad's 80th Birthday! Yay, Dad. We flew in this morning. We're going to my sister's house in an hour or so for the afternoon and then my brother is hosting a dinner. The big birthday event is a brunch tomorrow morning. Then we get on a plane to be back in NY by 7:30pm (because I have to be at work on Monday at 4:00am)

In the meantime, we decided to have lunch near our hotel.

This is the Jacksonville Landing. It's a bunch of shops and restaurants right on the St. John's River. It's actually pretty lame. But it's on the water, the weather is nice, so it's all good.

And the bloody marys are pretty damned good. (Have we discussed the proper plural for bloody mary before?)

Happy Birthday, Nathan's Dad!

And glad you're getting a break, Nathan. As they say, "change is as good as a holiday" (most of the time anyway).
