Weekly Recap – September 27th, 2013

For the programming nerds among us…

Touching down on the runway never felt so good. I’m returning to the grind on Monday, but I’m halfway through my homecation and soaking up every minute of it. I’ve helped my wife clear out our DVR’s backlog of shows, finished reading one book, started another, and written a little over 4,000 words towards Wolf’s Tail in the past two days.

My project team is having a little celebratory dinner tonight over how well the first phase has gone, but that’s all of the time I’m putting into the office this week. It’s been tough for me to turn off my work phone and ignore piling emails but I’ve somehow managed. Sometimes you just gotta step back. Either one of two things will happen. People will realize how much you do and anxiously await your return, or they will get along without you and you’ll realize you’re not so invaluable after all. Secretly, I’m hoping it’s the latter. The ego can use a reality check once in awhile, plus, pulling some responsibility off my shoulders would be a welcome turn of events.

There’ll be a few more posts from me over the coming days: a couple of book reviews plus some random topics.

I look forward to catching up with everyone again! I can only hope your weekend will be as welcomed as mine.
