I’m almost done with my travelings for thanksgiving. We extended the trip a tad so as to hang out with both sides of our family. We’ve eaten bunches of turkey, and a few other more interesting meats, such as raccoon, squirrel and deer (we did visit Arkansas, after all!).
Things are a little different this year. Last year, working for the man, I could take off a few weeks at a time, and it was no big deal. This time, anytime I take off for anything longer than a weekend, things get a little more complicated. Holidays are even more interesting, and U.S. holidays even more. Some of my clients aren’t from the U.S., so I got work emails on Thanksgiving day. It’s all plenty manageable so far, but it’s an amusing side-effect of working for yourself in a global environment.
Soon we attempt the long trek back to Colorado. By the time we arrive we’ll have listened to the entire five book Hitchhikers Guide trilogy, read to us by the author.
Some new work stuff has come up lately, a contest and a fun site is launching. I’ll blog about that this week, but first miles to put behind us and more work to do.
