I’m currently on a bit of family vacation at Lake Oconee (midway between Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia). We’re staying at a family friend’s lakehouse.
So far, we have tubed, cooked out on the grill/smoker, played a good bit of Wii Mario Kart, coerced my five month old nephew into laughter (and a few tears), had some fun discussions on expatriation, indulged in ice cream and even had a Crossfit-esque workout (3 rounds of 20 pushups, kettlebell swings – 1.5 pood, 20 double-unders). And we still have the better part of a week left!
The only drawback is that I’m still “plugged in” to my business, which never sleeps — the demands of website maintenace/management never subside. Anyway, I’m doing my best to batch process work and enjoy myself. It’s working out okay.
I’m also mildly happy that I extricated myself last week from my bearish plays on the market (though shocked to see the market still diving — the pain of missed profits!). Being short or long right now would be quite stressful.
