Things I've Done This Weekend That I Normally Don't Do

Posted by Kirby Turner on August 21, 2011

I’m in the final stagings of writing my book, and to help out, the wife gave me the okay to spend a few days in Vermont along. No wife. No kid. Just me and my laptop.

The trip to Vermont has, so far, been great. It’s given me the time I need to make some real progress on the completing the book. It’s also given me time to do things I don’t normal get to do anymore.

Acknowledgement: Yes, I know what follows will likely anger the wife, but hey, I’m just trying to keep it real.

Things I’ve done this weekend that I normally don’t do:

  • Write code for hours on end…uninterrupted.
  • Work the book…uninterrupted.
  • Go to sleep when I want, but more importantly wake up when I want.
  • Have hours of peace and quiet. No talking. No socializing with others.
  • And best of all, take a shower each day.

The combination of sleep and alone time is just want I needed. And the daily showers, icing on the cake.

Thanks Melanie and Rowan for giving me this time.

Update: I do miss having reliable high-speed Internet access.
