Labor Day Blues

It seems strange, but this is the first Labor Day weekend in a while where we've opted to stay home. Last year at this time, we made a crazy weekend trip to Guyana to see Kaieteur Falls. The year before that, we made another crazy long weekend trip to Argentina to see Iguazu Falls. Plus, the year before that (two years ago), Julie and her mom started a European trip that encompassed the UK, France, Switzerland, and Italy, and I was planning a little spontaneous trip with my mom to the American Southwest, which we ended up doing two weeks later . So indeed, I can't remember what it's like to just go through a weekend like this and do absolutely nothing.

I guess that's the way it goes sometimes. Perhaps we need this rest. Yet in the back of my mind, I still feel like we should capitalize on the extra day off to go to quick-hitting places like La Gran Sabana in Venezuela or something quick in the Canadian Rockies or something. Oh well, maybe next time...
