 I'm on vacation with my wonderful wife Laura and daughter Lois  in a beautiful condo right on the beach, over looking the Gulf. Every day has been gorgeous and there's so much interesting stuff to do. Aside from the beach itself there are a multitude of amazing seafood restaurants, some great shopping plazas, family to visit and my wife's friend Kim has even come from out of town for a few hours today, just to see Laura and enjoy the beach on her way home from her own vacation.

I wish I were having a good time.

When the trip was booked we assumed I'd be healed by now, half a year after the surgery. Instead, we had to debate the merits of me going versus me staying home. I'm here, and I'm glad I get to share this time with my family but the most exciting thing I can say about this trip is that the bed I spend most of my time in is super comfortable and if we had the extra money I'd say we need this at our house. That and I've read two books in two days. In bed. Alone.

I love that Lois, who is four, gets to spend time on the beach and play in the ocean. She gets to spend way more time with mommy than normal and see family she only sees once a year or so. I sincerely hope that some of this trip stays with her forever. I'm so very happy she's here.

I love that Laura, who has held this family together while I've recovered and who has gone through so much in such a little time, has this chance to unwind. She clearly loves the ocean and loves the time she's getting with our adorable daughter. It's awesome that once Lois goes to bed, Laura can sit back and play Skyrim, let the stress roll off her, and worry less about the world around her. And by happenstance she gets to see a friend she hasn't seen in a couple of years! This is so fantastic and needed for her.

Im excited and happy for them both. I look forward to tomorrow when I might be healthy enough to go out to lunch or maybe even dinner. I look forward to watching the two of them have the time of their lives.

I just wish I could join in on it.
