In the spirit of being intentional about vacations with no kids, I’m happy to share that I’m going completely off the grid today and won’t be back in the Matrix until next weekend. My bride and I are sneaking away to blue water and sunny skies for a week. We both need the disconnect.
We plan to fill our schedule with intense fun – no lounging on the beach for the Cooks. That’s not a vacation. “Down time” just gives your mind to think about things you aren’t doing at work and home. We just need fun time. It’s the same relaxation as flying airplanes for me – the only way to truly disengage your mind is to engage it on something else.
Don’t get me wrong, the afternoon naps will be glorious power naps.
See you on the other side.
