And when I got back? An eerie feeling. For the first time in weeks and weeks I felt completely caught up. Nothing major due or hanging over my head. Two drafts in the client's hands, a new project starting up Monday, two others quiet for now. Insane.
So I ran some errands, vacuumed the place, read a hundred articles on the Internet about how the GOP is screwing the country. It was heaven.
Looking ahead, I think the hardest of the hard part is mostly over for this one project. And the new one starting up is totally manageable. I don't mind not being completely challenged for a bit.
