Appropriately, Amy and I spent Thanksgiving with family, going to dinner in Christiansburg with my mother and younger brother. When we moved back to my home county two years ago, I expected to spend more time with family. Sadly, there never seems to be as much time as we'd like. I'm busier in "retirement" than I ever was while "working for a living." True, I'm not on the road more than 250 days a year but a steady schedule of volunteer activities plus a couple of part time gigs that each stretch into full time work mean less time than ever for family.
