This "holiday" started out with surgery, which put me out for a couple of weeks. No heavy lifting, no running or jumping about, no real expectations. After the first week I had a fair amount of mobility back, but I still couldn't do anything strenuous nor was anything expected of me. The month of July was probably the most relaxing and stress free month I've had in a long time. Isn't that what a holiday should be? Do what you want for the time you have with no deadlines or real expectations.
Once I was able to ride again, I was in heaven. Wake up in the morning, have a bite to eat while surfing the web for bit, check the weather and go for a short ride. I know...hard life, eh? Mind you, I didn't turn into a lump that just laid in bed all day. I still got things done around the house, but usually got scolded for it.
The only true downfall is that LoA means no income. So we are pretty hard pressed right now while we wait for UI and benefits to come in and cover the time I missed.
Personally, I think that anyone who owns a motorcycle should have the whole summer off. Yeah, that would do just fine...
