I have mixed feelings about all this.
You know how incredibly busy I am with work from January to April. This year, somehow, I have been talked into taking a week off during that time -- a first for me. And it's not just a week off -- Jerry, the fast-talking salesman, talked me into going on a cruise -- another first. I always thought I was too young to go on a cruise -- now I think maybe I'm too old... But we are going nonetheless.
So a month from today, we leave from Fort Lauderdale, Florida heading off into the Atlantic and the warm Caribbean for a week.
Whether I can relax knowing about the work flooding into my office back home is the big question.
