For the first time in years, I have real vacation time. The kind where I get paid for my relaxation efforts instead of losing out on my revenue stream any time I take a day off. This year, though, we haven’t been able to take our customary family vacations. So I hadn’t been using my time or even thinking of how to use it. Until I realized the advantages of taking a day or two off throughout the summer season and getting some extra time to myself.
I actually took three this time around and still have two of them left. Friday Dev and I drove to the other side of the state to visit friends (one of whom is pictured above). We spent a couple of days there just doing nothing. (Well, I did nothing…he played!) Now I just have to figure out what to do with my Monday and Tuesday this week. Oh, the possibilities.
