I’m busy. I have three young children, school, and housework, and I’m not used to taking a break. So holidays are different. I’m basically forced to take a bit of a break. (And I left my computer at home so I couldn’t work on projects.) I sat around and talked (and ate) for most of the day.
I do everything else in my life so that I can have the opportunity to laugh and enjoy my family. Sometimes I forget that, and it’s good to be reminded.
