It spreads before me, a sweeping chasm of non-meeting time, a blessed dearth of dealing with design.
It's not as if I don't love my job, I do! I love being creative and solving problems; or at least figuring-out how to solve them and letting the clever people actually implement my fixes. And I love working in a team. The team I have is great; we bounce ideas off each other and the result is an idea better than any of us would have come up with individually.
The thing is, though, that it is so much fun and excitement that I arrive at home drained and tired - Saga gets her walk, but that it about it for me for the evenings! I need the long weekend to recharge. So this weekend, I'm not planning anything. Saga and I will do whatever strikes our fancies, napping on the couch, scoping out the park, walking in the hills, licking various body parts... Saga may do some of those things too. The point is that the long weekend we're standing on the verge of will be one of total relaxation.
Wherever you are this weekend, I hope it is full of whatever you want to fill it with!
