Two Weeks and Counting

I would be lying if I said that I don’t think about my upcoming vacation approximately every 36 seconds.

It’s been at least half a year since I had much of a break. I had intended to take time off between Christmas and New Year, but work demanded my attention, so I think I got maybe two days off in total, and still worked a little on those days. That’s one of the biggest annoyances as a self-employed person who provides services – the need for those services does not respect vacation times or holidays. Or evenings. Or weekends.

Essentially, I’m always on call. But now that I have a support person working for me regularly, my hope is that I can get him to the point where he can step up while I step away. I’m hopeful that I will do minimal work while in Orlando, and Nate can field the things that can’t wait for me to get back. We’ll see. One way or another, I need to get myself to the point where I can start to have genuine downtime.

I’ve been increasingly exhausted and strained feeling, which is how I know it’s time. You wouldn’t think what I do is very hard, but it can be very stressful, and that adds up over time. Eventually small problems start to feel like huge, insurrmountable ones, and that’s when you know it is time for some rest. So if I seem to be limping a little bit, that’s why. I am. I’m worn out and need a week to recover and come back at everything stronger than before.

Can’t wait to get ripped off by the Mouse! Any time right not spent not fixing websites will be a boon.
