Quite Time

It’s vacation week for me. Everything’s scheduled for SQLServerCentral, and my family is taking our annual ski break for Thanksgiving. We left on Sunday, after I returned from SQL Saturday #59 and are not due back in town until Fri or Sat. I’m not even sure how “wired” we’ll be, though I will be tweeting/FB’ing a bit from the slopes.

We typically have gone skiing on Thursday to Sunday, but this year we managed to book a whole week in Winter Park, CO. So we took advantage of it, and I’m leaving work behind.

It’s a good break, and while I’m worried about coming back to tons of articles to edit, I need to break. The last few months have been slightly crazy, and we have lots of stuff in the pipeline for next year, so I need to step back, relax, and then spend December looking to find ways to manage the work life balance.
Hopefully everyone has a great holiday, and if you don’t get a response from my this week, you’ll know why.
