We're back (minus luggage)

I said I'd post while I was in Sweden, but we only had internet access on our final night. The trip was lots of fun and I woke up this morning in my own bed feeling a bit depressed that I was back in the mundane world. Our luggage apparently was feeling the same way yesterday and spent an extra night in Copenhagen. We hope it decided to catch the flight to Seattle today.

I've got a bunch of pictures that I'm sorting through, and I'll post them on Flickr once I'm done. I'm also planning on writing up some good posts about our day-to-day adventures. In the meantime, here's a video of a band doing a sound check at the Ice Hotel.

Great start to my vacation

After a 2-hour commute home, we walked into a 56° house. Apparently our furnace decided to go on vacation, too. After a bit of calling around, I found a guy to come out and install a new igniter. It wasn't cheap, but at least it was a quick fix. I hope the cats appreciate it while we're gone. :)

We're just about packed and ready to go. Hopefully our flights stay on schedule and I can get some sleep on the plane. Twenty four hours from now we should be touching down in Stockholm.
