Enjoying some tranquility July 21, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Random musings.

As soon as I finish a 2,700 word translation for one of my clients that I agreed to do for Tuesday I am taking the rest of the week off for a well-deserved mental health vacation. My head was throbbing on Saturday after such a busy week, and I recognized my need for some time off. I read somewhere that translators and particularly interpreters have a higher rate of strokes and cerebral events since we work under a lot of stress (it might have been a one-off mention in The Interpreter by Suzanne Glass; I can’t remember.). I don’t want that to be me.

Anyway, after doing two weeks’ work in five days I definitely deserve it. I will be spending time on my balcony and reading a good book or two. Not to mention a trip or two to the dog park since I neglected my dog last week. And a couple trips to the city swimming pool. Basically just relaxing. I may even pop over to one of the islands on Lake Erie for a fun day exploring.

I may be posting this week if a thought pops into my head, but if I don’t I hope you have a great week and I’ll be back as usual next week.
