I have decided to take the next two days off, both Today and Tomorrow.
I met with the staff and we decided that I really need a couple of real days off. Sure, I could ask the FTVLive Intern to step in. He does a great job covering for me when I am away from the computer.
But, when the Intern is filling in, there are still back and forth phone calls, text messages, email and editorial decisions that have to be made. So, while it is nice having the Intern step in, it's still truly not time off for me.
I have some planned time off coming in September as I need to head to New York for a few days, but I really think a quick couple of days off in the slow month of July is something I could use as well.
I'll be honest, I hate taken days off. I hate not having the site updated and I hate having someone post a story before I do. But, at the same time, I have been going it it hard this year and could truly use some analog time.
My goal is to stay away from the computer, off my phone and get nowhere near my TV.
It's a couple of days of decompressing.
I hope you guys don't mind if I take a very short break, but I think I need it.
I'll see you back here first thing Monday morning.
Try and behave yourselves while I'm gone. OK?
