Sometimes, there’s just nothing more necessary than a trip home. For a week and a half I’ve been wandering around, at work, in the apartment, even while out with friends, in a sort of pissed off daze. Nothing specific had happened (well that is until Friday when my Red Sox unceremoniously got swept out of the post season) I was just worn out. For a month and a half I had been pushing myself too hard. Too much drinking, too little sleep. Too much socializing, too little alone time.

I should have known a long time ago what I needed was to come home. Because in the span of three days, which included: a dinner with my aunt, uncle, grandfather, mom, dad, and brother; a shopping trip, a haircut, more food than you can even imagine and and all of Season 4 of the West Wing on DVD, I head back to New York, ten pounds heavier (thanks Mom) with a lot less hair (I’m still mad at you crazy stylist) and a lot less stressed out.

Ahh, those weekends are great. I used to call them restarting. Its like pushing reset and getting to play the game all over again, and i am sure they gave you some perspective. Hope the hair and you are doing great.

Glad to hear you’re feeling better. I want to see that haircut too!

There’s always next year, right? I’m sure it looks good on you Finy; the extra 10lbs. and the new do! My motto on haircuts is, “The only difference between a bad haircut and a good haircut is 2 weeks.”

Post-Season is a time of reflection & meditation.

You NEEDED that retreat, in order to recharge your batteries.

We all need to-it’s been a LONG season.

I hope that “The Nation” can retreat Downtown, for a bit of Cameraderie.

Will Tim McCarver, please get rid of The Hair Dye? He looks RIDICULOUS.
