Where does the time go?

Now that I have not worked for over a month, this has been the longest break I've had since the summer I finished my Bachelor's degree and headed for grad school 18 years ago.

In the month that I didn't work, my wife and I have been on the road for well over 3 weeks, traveling around. The travel has been pretty hectic, even though we are attempting to slow it down some. (We've never stayed in the same city or hotel for more than 2 nights in a row.) Therefore, it still doesn't feel like a real break.

The lesson for me has been that there isn't as much free time lying around as one would imagine. And that I have to consciously plan activities into my days if I don't want the time to be simply frittered away.
