...I sure hope that my freakishly early curcurbit crop still produces lots of fruit.
It's been a fast four day weekend. Usually after four days off I come back feeling like I've had the chance to inhale deeply and clear out the cobwebs from my head. I still feel like I need a few days, though. Maybe it's because we've been relatively busy with projects and family get-togethers. Today is the first day we've had were we truly did nothing and didn't leave the house.
If I force myself to think hard enough about it, it's been over three years since I've had more than four days off in a row. It's sad that our society puts so little importance on mental and emotional health. I'm not going to leave my PTO days to rot now that I've made a new start. Not only will I not be afraid to take time off, but I also am not going to let myself feel guilty about the days I'm not zoning out in front of a computer.
My husband an I have a mini-vacation planned in a few weeks. We're calling it our "2009 Brew Cruise". We'll be visiting three of our favorite craft microbreweries in Indiana and Michigan:
- Three Floyds - Munster, IN
- Founders - Grand Rapids, MI
- Bell's - Kalamazoo, MI (perhaps my favorite brewery)
