I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is in looking back at the pandemic, what has been a good thing for you?
I think the best thing for me across the pandemic is that I actually used a lot of vacation with my family, mostly my wife. Unlike many years, where I plan on trips and usually have work get so busy that I have vacation time left at the end of the year, in 2022 I burned all my vacation.
Things I did:
- Multiple ski overnight ski trips
- Volleyball trips to Philadelphia, Omaha, and Orlando
- A vacation in Key West
- Two horse competitions in Santa Fe
- Camping in Custer, SD
- A wedding in DC
- Las Vegas with the family
- A horse shopping trip in Boise
It was a good year away from work with the pandemic.
