3 weeks ago... I took a week off.
And it took 3 weeks to rebuild a routine
I like to work every day for at least a little bit.
I like to write every day.
This is because I find that when I stop, it takes a while to get back up to full speed.
About 3 weeks.
The time off from work was “time on” for family. Mostly creating varied and new experiences for my almost one-year-old. Which meant varied and new experiences for my wife and I.
We took our little girl on a variety of excursions, to the bird park and a petting zoo. Kids help you see the world as fresh and new and wonderful.
I watched her vocabulary grow.
A little bit of that “time on” style of family time lingers in the weeks after the time off I took from work. It has kind of worked itself into the rebuilt routine. That’s what time off is, a demolition of routine so that we can build a new one.
