Boxers, mini-fridge and WITPAE Turns...

So I wanted to ping you on the occasional (even rare) occasion where you have a long lonely day at home. On great occasion where we both have such days that happen to sync up, we could turn numerous turns in a single day.

I understand these days could be extremely rare, but could be fun.

I bring this up because I think I'm going to take a self imposed hiatus from coaching in Aug, Sep and Oct. I've not been taking care of myself recently, so I think taking 90 days to just simply focus on work, my health and things that make me happy is long overdue.

That's a great idea. Unfortunately those kind of days don't really exist for me... My 4 year old won't allow it!

Never say never though.
