Head Trip: Two Tickets to Paradise

Again...more distraction. This weekend I am writing some blogs for the week to cue for upload that have nothing to do with Bennett. Well, I wouldn't say 'nothing', I'm just staying away from the update-style Bennett blogs, though I reference him a lot in this one, so sue me. But I need a break from it, and what better way to take a break than to go on a Head Trip?

There are a lot of reasons that vacations aren't going to be happening for us any time soon. Certainly cash is a primary factor, and certainly we don't want to run Bennett around all kinds of places until we have a better read on treating his condition. Probably the biggest reason is PTO, which stands for Paid Time Off. Any that we would normally use for funsies, is gonna get eaten up taking care of Bennett and spending time in various doctors office and hospitals with him.

Not like we were crazy travelers to begin with mind you. Though it was our initial hope, after Bennett was born, that we could star…


The blogs for most of this week will be nothing more than glorified Super-Tangents. I need a break from the everyday. If something MAJOR significant happens with Bennett this week, believe me I will step in with an update. But meantime? I just need some distraction. So this weekend I am gonna put together some stuff and set it to go and just get my mind off all this other shit.

I gotta admit, I love Steampunk. LOVE IT. I think, though I can't be too totally sure about this, but I think I love it more than Retro-Futurism. I dunno...if you told me I could be wealthy beyond my wildest dreams and part of that wealth was a gigantic custom-designed and built home created entirely in a Retro-Futuristic or Steampunk style? I'd probably pick the Steampunk.

And what is Steampunk? Glad you asked.
