My wife is taking next week off work as a much-needed vacation, pretending she’s in Mexico or somewhere nice (it will be around 90° for most of the week). I have an infinite amount of work to do, but am thinking about joining her in taking a break. I think I need it too.

We had big plans for vacations this year, including a 3-week trip to NZ, a couple trips to Ashland, etc. But now we don’t expect to go anywhere this year. Or for the foreseeable, really.
