Remember when you went back to school when you were little. What did you do on your summer vacation Billy? Well, I’ve had the last two weeks off for some additional paternity leave and wanted to recap what all I did. More for me than anyone else. Some technical, some definitely not.
Played with my Twins… a lot.
Played with my oldest son.
Painted my son’s room
Took my oldest to a movie.
Did some minor woodworking modifying a stander for my son.
Worked in the yard
Cleaned the gutters
Ran several longer runs
Took some long walks to clear my head
Worked on automating some code that I’ve been meaning to automate
Worked on a migration plan for a CentOS 5 box
Got the VPN working on my Fedora Laptop.
Worked on my bot idea.
Setup a new git server
Explored a new blog engine backend
Overall, it was a pretty relaxing time. Some of the items on there were pretty easy, several were more work than I wanted. But in the end, I got to spend more time with the family, help out my wife and just get away from it all. It was definitely needed, time to plan the next break!
