Left foot has been acting up with a touch of pf so I skipped the run today and did an hour of xt.
Realized something today. I have a coworker who is also a professional nature photographer- in the past few years, he spent a week by himself taking pictures in Norway, another week in Iceland, plus LOTS of days camping outside taking pics. When I look at my vacation from the past 4 years, almost all my days out of the office are either me working from home when my wife is out of town or travelling with or to extended families (2 trips out west, trips with families on east coast, etc). The ONLY time my immediate family (me, wife, 5 kids) have travelled by ourselves is a one day trip to Great Wolf Lodge last year.
My time off is already booked for this year- another week home while Marci is at girls' camp, 1.5 weeks with Marci's family in upstate NY, 1 week with family coming Sept/Oct, plus a few days in July when my sister comes with her family.
I really need a vacation. Maybe I'll quit my job and go hike the Appalachian Trail by myself. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy seeing family, but for that to be my ONLY time off for 4 years...
