Just in case you were wondering, we did survive our weekend. We had a great time at the ranch with friends. We did lots of fishing, riding around, hanging out outside, and mostly just lots of relaxing. The cell phones DID work, but no one really bothered with them. That was probably the best part of the whole weekend - getting to ignore real life for a few days.
Now it's back to the grindstone. A new term started at work. Indeed, it's back to the real world.
