We had a great time in Illinois. It was good to see my parents and my brother and sister-in-law. It was nice to see green hills and fields.
I spent a lot of the week thinking about work. It took me two days (the 2 we spent getting there) to decompress. And then on the way home, I found myself again unable to think about anything much but work. I don’t think that is a good sign. This past week back at work was OK until Friday. And actually even then work was OK. I was the one who was not doing so great.
Next weekend is Bubonicon, and I can only hope that it provides me a complete escape from thoughts of work and/or that it gives me some clarity about how I want to spend the remainder of my working life. Wish me luck!
