This trip has been very restorative in all kinds of ways.
Like I said, I knew this wouldn't be time *off* - cons are work for me! But it's a different kind of work and a different kind of busy from what's been plowing me under back home. And the shift has worked. (The shift and everything else. :) )
I haven't much time before departing for Madison, but given what a stressmonkey I've ben lately, I wanted y'all to know: I have had the reset I needed, and everything is good. :)
