Coming Up for Air (or: Time Off for Good Behavior)

Today was my last day of work until September 12. My company, which is cool for many reasons, offers a six-week paid sabbatical after seven years of service. (I’ve actually been with the company for eight years, but I deferred my sabbatical a year because I was on maternity leave part of last year.)

I’ve got some fun stuff planned. A week in Paris with Preston (no kids) and a week at the beach in Massachusetts (with kids). In between I have some fun stuff planned and a few home and personal projects.

How do I feel today? Um, weird. I took my work email off my iPhone and I feel untethered. It’s not completely unpleasant, but also not yet completely pleasant.

Anyway, watch this space for more.

I promise future posts will be more interesting.

P.S. Do you want to work for a company that offers paid sabbaticals (among many other cool benefits)? We’ve got about 50 openings right now.
