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.
