Packing up and heading out of town for a week today. My first week off for vacation in a year (we won't count the week I took off last November when my daughter was hospitalized--hardly vacation). Our family will be meeting up with three others from residency in what has become an annual tradition. Time to rest, play, think, have a few beers, and do a lot of running. I cannot think of a more perfect time for this to come.
