Welcome back…

Welcome back…

Welcome backOver 17 days of paternity leave I spent about two hours total on e-mail. Most of it was sending out “It’s a girl” announcements in the first few days after Moira was born. It was glorious to set the laptop aside for days at a stretch and concentrate on the family. I have a feeling though, that the next couple of days are going to be pretty e-mail heavy. 95% of it will be cruft, deletable without reading. It’s sifting through all that e-mail to get at the 5% that is time consuming.

It’s also a little humbling to be back at work after a couple weeks and see that everything is in pretty good order. Good to know that our team can keep the ship afloat, though disconcerting to realize one is not as indispensable as hoped. Then again, I haven’t gotten through that 5% yet…
