Tomorrow morning, I head off for a weeklong trip to New England. This long-awaited vacation is something that has been in the works for a while.
Last year, I wrote about the importance of taking time. It is important for people to refresh themselves, and to enjoy some time away from their work to redefine their perspective, refresh their minds, and rejuvenate their spirits.

I took the weekend off to head back to California and visit my mother for her birthday. It was a wonderful time, and it was a reminder of the need to take time off to rest and relax. Code written by people who are tired and worn out is never as good as code written by those refreshed.
Though this will be a busy week it won’t be an exceptionally busy one. I generally hold that if you have to do more work when you come back than you normally would something is wrong – coming back from a vacation to a higher stress level than when you left is bad.
