During last year’s negotions to sell my one-person company, one of the things I wanted was some time off after the next version of FeedDemon was released. Being a one-man show was fun, exciting, challenging…and exhausting (especially now that I’m the father of two). So I made sure that the deal included a month off.
Why am I telling you this? Because last week I started my month off. I had all sorts of plans to travel to exotic beaches and the usual vacation stuff, but in the end I decided to spend the first week puttering around the house. The only geek-related thing I did was play around with Vox – other than that, I’ve been running around with my kids, watching movies, reading books, and generally being a lazy bum. And you know what? I needed to be lazy at home for a few days, but now I’m ready to get out of town and be lazy somewhere else.
So, I’m taking my family to some out-of-the-way tropical island, and after I get there I’ll run around with my kids, watch movies, read books, and generally be a lazy bum (with frozen beverage in hand, of course).
Apologies to those who are waiting for me to reply to an email, but I’m afraid it’s going to be a little while before you hear from me. I’m unplugging completely for the next couple weeks, and I’m settling my mind into that wonderful place where email doesn’t even exist.
