July 4th Weekend

Thanks to an administrative holiday on Friday, I had four days off work to celebrate July 4th. It was glorious. I powered down my work phone at 6pm on Wednesday and didn't even look at it again until Sunday evening. (I wish that past me--a law firm associate that spent most family-focused holidays in front of a computer editing and exchanging documents with opposing counsel--could have seen this light at the end of the tunnel more clearly because life is good now.)

I spent my weekend reading, tutoring, entertaining, and relaxing at home. On July 4th, we went to Terry Black's BBQ for dinner. We had originally planned to walk over to Zilker Park afterwards, but the restaurant's patio has an excellent view of the Auditorium Shores fireworks so we stuck around. It was simple and easy.

Since we’re more than half way through the year, I also spent time over the weekend thinking about what I want to accomplish before the year-end holidays. At a minimum, I’ll continue to chip away at the 2019 goals that I set back in January, try to rehabilitate my recent knee injury, book a vacation, update my financial planning, considering how I can grow my tutoring “business,” and earn a certification relevant to my day job.
