2023.07.15 3-Week Break
Today kicks off the first day of my 3-week summer break, in which I plan to...
Hm. You know, I'm not totally sure what.
Nominally, I'll figure out a way to strap the monster bike rack to the Rusty Pig and take the kids out for some adventures discovering biking. And I mean to do a bit of writing. And we plan to do a tonne of D&D. Maybe a trip up the mountain with Zora. Plus wrapping up with Amy's and Violet's birthdays.
But, really, those are possible waypoints instead of a packed itinerary.
I spent entirely too much time this past week being crushed under work stress, and I definitely don't feel free of its grip yet. That's probably the main thing I need to figure out - by means of engaging with mindfully existing in a bunch of non-work moments.
It's worth noting that on the very first weekend of said vacation, I was called by my manager asking me to consult on a testing issue. Having consulted, I'm not struggling with worry about the all-new problem encountered by the project. Goddamn work stress is persistent.
