Since returning from Ohio, I’ve worked 24 straight, 10 to 12 hour days, without any time off. Despite the view of a few trees from my office window, it’s still not the same as when we were in Ohio and I participated in a web conference while sitting at a picnic table. If we were on the road and staying at a nice wooded campsite, the workload probably wouldn’t have bothered me.
One problem with working so many days straight and living in a S&B (stick and brick) is when you do have a day off, you really don’t because you have to catch up on the home maintenance and yard work. I’m sure my neighbors were happy to see me outside.
It’s times like this that keeps our dream alive.
