Home is empty

Battle with my Nemesis failed to live up to hype, every time he attempted to raise my blinds one of players to my right re-raised and Columbo mucked quickly. He tried to trap by min-raising JJ and NewinNov flopped 2 pair from the BB to put him out of his misery.

I managed to satellite in FTOPS #8 and collect a last longer bet with LJ, she came up just short of a seat herself when low draw + flush draw failed to hit either.

The wife and the daughter have departed for Florida for visiting Grandma and Disney World. They will be sweltering in 95+ degree temperatures with 90% humidity while I suffer through high 70 degree temps with no humidity in San Jose.

I get along better with my mother-in-law than I get along with my own mother but my presence increases tensions between my wife and her mother. She is old school and thinks wife should be more attentive to my needs and this causes friction between wife and her mom (or wife and me when I say anything to suggest her mom is onto something ;) ). When I stay away wife and daughter can spend quality time with Grandma without anyone worrying about me being bored.

Real question becomes how will I fill void with them gone for the next nine days?
