As Laurie notes, we are both unplugged and at leisure at the same time for the first time in I don’t know how long. Because of my project’s requirements, and because of some of the stuff she’s been involved in, even when we’ve been on vacation the last couple of years, there’s still been some aspect of work going with us.
This time? almost none. On Friday, my programmer and I put down our stone axes and our bronze chisels about 4:30 and said “enough”. We left the project with two open items, one we think is fixed and will be tested while we’re gone, the other a couple hours short of fixing and we’ll get back on it starting 1/5 (in the past, I’d have been tempted to carry on with this now, but not this year. I’m ready for the break…)
I’ll be spending a very little amount of time making sure systems stay up and stuff that needs to be ready for Macworld is, but it’s other people doing the “ready for Macworld” part this time, thank god.
So we’re going to see what happpens when we have two weeks to ourselves without deadlines, at least deadlines not of our own making…
I think I’ll go take a bath. Back later. Maybe. maybe not. and ain’t that a great feeling….
