Feeling refreshed!

For the first time in a long time, I am feeling relaxed (or at least I was, before I went in to Prodigal U today). Limiting Internet access to 1 hour a day greatly enhanced my vacation. I could handle important work mails (and not abandon my students), but blow off unimportant stuff. I didn't feel cut off, but I didn't feel too connected to work. And the weather in our vacation spot was great all week!

In my absence, I see the science blogging arena has blown up. I'll have to get around to fixing my blogroll sometime this week.

"I'll have to get around to fixing my blogroll sometime this week." Yes that was a pain in the butt - I wanted to keep reading all of them but very annoying having to update my links!

Glad you have great vacation.

I'm so glad that you found a happy balance between staying connected and cutting the cord!

Glad you had a nice break, and welcome back!

Thanks! I am finding that the less connected I am on vacation, the bigger the pile I need to dig through now that I am back. It was worth it, though.
