This is what vacations and rest periods are supposed to be like: Rest. Most of my vacations are spent working on some web project or other, or traveling to visit family and friends, or are otherwise hectic and rushed. But since last Friday, I’ve had 4 nights where I was able to sleep more than seven hours straight (and even 8+ hours a couple times). I’ve been able to take naps during the day. Yes, I still saw my family for Christmas. Yes, I still have done work on some of my web projects. Yes, I’ve checked email for work. But you know what? It’s been great not having any immediate deadlines to worry about. I am feeling rejuvenated right now. And I like how that feels.
