Ask the Readers returns next week. I need to dial it back, just for a moment…
Above all, post-life work has been stupendous. It took me about 2 milliseconds to forget about my job. Formal work ended 31 days ago, but it feels like years. (Mrs. 1500 note: I told you!)
I didn’t sit back and rest for even a moment. On the weekend after I left my job, I joined older daughter for a sleepover at Denver Museum or Nature and Science:
(Mrs. 1500 Rave: Grumpy Goat coffee is fantastic! Mr. 1500 does not drink coffee, an egregious character flaw that I generously overlooked when deciding to both date and marry him. Brian over at Grumpy Goat roasts to order, so you aren’t getting old, dry beans. If you are a coffee drinker, check out the Peruvian or Ethiopian. Espresso grind the beans for a super treat.)
I couldn’t stop thinking about Mr. PoP’s NSX, so I flew back to Wisconsin to look at the black one again. I decided to buy it and drive it back to Colorado. The story of the car deserves its own post, so I’ll save it for another day. I will divulge that the drive back was mostly uneventful (mechanical perfection, inquisitive folks at gas stations and only one encounter with law enforcement):
The day after I got back into town, I met up with friends for hiking in Boulder and a concert at Red Rocks:
Life is great, but I’ve overbooked myself. I hate having no downtime. I go crazy if I don’t have time to sit back and just think.
It’s time to dial it back. I need to step away, but not for long.
Does anyone want to write a gratitude guest post for Friday?
