When Staycation’s Over

Well, it happened again. Another week off (I usually take two a year, one in the spring and one in the fall) passed in a surreal flash. Many would remind me how lucky I am to have a job that allows me to drop everything for a week and get paid anyway. I don’t disagree.... Continue Reading →
