I was talking to my supervisor at the homeless shelter on Sunday and explaining that I was going to be away for a while, first in Wisconsin, then in California. Her response: "That's really great that you can take a month off work." I laughed pretty hard when she said that. I tried to explain that I wasn't taking any time off -- my work is just very mobile. I actually tend to get more done in California than I do here because there are many fewer distractions. It got me thinking though about how I very rarely take actual vacation -- the kind of vacation where I don't bring work. When Em and I went to Las Vegas this summer for 4 days I didn't do any work, but that's the longest real vacation I have taken in several years now. Maybe this summer I will try to take a week or two and have a real vacation! Hmmm... I'm not really sure where I can afford to go for a week! I suppose sometime this summer I will have to move -- that could involve a long drive. Road trips are one of my favorite kinds of vacations! Now that it is starting to get cold though I am fantasizing more about sitting on the beach sipping drinks with umbrellas in them.
Meanwhile, back to work...
