Vacation in the Fast Lane

I just got back from a business trip and a week of vacation. I've recounted in the past how sudden decreases in stress can trigger migraines. No problems with that on this vacation. Here's a brief summary.

Fr, 6/9: Rush from end of class to airport, arrive SLC 11:00 pm, parents take me to their apartment for the night, get to bed at 2:00 am after staying up reading about the Stanford Prison Experiment.
Sa, 6/10: Up at 8:00 am and head to Hill AFB for airshow, rush to parents apartment for supper at 7:00 pm, concert in LDS Conference Center from 7:30-10:00, dessert, and to in-laws for the night.
Su, 6/11: Sleep in while wife, girls, and in-laws go to church, go out for lunch, watch remote control airplanes, rush home after emergency call from wife to discover that we are now persona non grata due to church non-attendance. Supper w/ wife's family at in-laws.
Mo, 6/12: Swimming, movie, back to in-laws.
Tu, 6/13: Coffee w/ La, Rebecca, and friends, buy tools and parts for motorcycles, more swimming, SLC Hogle zoo with parents and family, dinner w/ parents and family.
We, 6/14: Prep dirt bikes for riding in mountains, wife in tears due to more needling from FIL and notification that we shouldn't plan to stay there in future, ride in national forest all afternoon, return home, supper with in-laws, pack up and move out to stay with SIL.
Th, 6/15: Ride in moutains all day, dinner and movie with another SIL.
Fri, 6/16: AMA Superbike practice and qualifying.
Sa, 6/17: AMA Superbike qualifying and races
Su, 6/18: AMA Superbike races then race to SLC airport, catch flight home, arrive home at 2:00 am.

Had a great time with hardly a moment's rest. I brought along a ton of magazines and books so I could catch up on my reading but about the only reading I did was on the airplane flights.
