Timeout Good Raymond Mar III

Blogger's note: Today's blog is posted at Innovating Common Knowledge and at Finding Raymond Mar.

Blogger's note two: Today's blog is overdue. The vacation happened in Dec 2020-Jan 2021. I was supposed the write the blog in Feb 2021.

I took a vacation from Dec 20, 2020 to Jan 15, 2021. The last time I took a planned vacation was Jul 14-19, 2015. I blogged the Jul 2015 Timeout Good Raymond Mar. I took an unplanned vacation on Apr 6-21, 2019 Timeout Good Raymond Mar II. Honestly speaking, I forgot about the Apr 2019 vacation. I discovered the Apr 2019 vacation when I searched for past Innovating Common Knowledge vacation blogs. Was my latest vacation overdue?

The short answer is yes. The long answer is no. My Dec 2020-Jan 2021 vacation was not a 100% vacation. It was not 100% fun. I job trained on some days. I caught up watching documentaries. I sold eBay auctions. I cleaned the house. I cooked the meals. I wrote blogs. I job searched. I exercised. There was work to be completed. I was responsible for my obligations.

I didn't take life for granted. I learned lessons from 2007 Was Actually A Bad Year, The Year Was 2007, and Top Ten Wisdom Acquired In 2007 I Failed To Follow. The Dec 2020-Jan 2021 vacation was the correct 2007 Summer Sabbatical.
