The lab is semi-clean, my summer students are finished, and my samples are off being processed/analyzed/dealt with by others. I even cleaned and organized my office. So Partner and I are off for some real vacation in states far away from here, where the weather and views will be notably more pleasant.
Right now I'm filling up a data stick with spreadsheets, manuscript drafts, and unfinished syllabi, because although I don't plan on doing any work, I feel guilty leaving it all at home. I'm sure that's a sign of some sort of complex.
So begins the last hurrah.
