Taking A Break

lake okoboji, iowa

This morning I leave for a trip to Minnesota and Iowa. I’ll be gone for a week with my family to see grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins. I was born in Minnesota and lived there until I was 9 and a half. I remain a loyal fan to the Vikings, Twins, and T-Wolves, and I’ll even get to see a Twins game next Monday. I’ll be in southwest Minneapolis and on Lake Ok0boji, Iowa (my parents met there) during my time there. Should be a fun week.

I’m not planning on blogging (the sovereignty series will continue as planned) during my week away. I haven’t taken a break from blogging since I started, and I haven’t had a day off of work since January. I feel a sense that I need this break to truly be a break from work and from blogging/Twitter/social media. If something interesting happens (like Favre actually signing with the Vikings) while I’m there, I’ll be sure to update on Twitter or Facebook though.

I’ll definitely miss the interaction I get with all of you, but I am also looking forward to a chance to unplug and be in the moment.

    Enjoy! I also grew up in MN and have lived there off-and-on as an adult. Lived in PNW for 14 years but I always enjoy visiting the Twin Cities. It’s a fun place and very nice this time of year. I made it to 2 Twins games back in June. The Dome is looking tired but the new ballpark looks great. Hoping to get back for a series in ’10. I’ll keep an eye on the Favre situation while you’re away.

    Enjoy your time in MN. We like it here!
    And, I cannot believe the Favre thing actually happened. Viking and Packer fans around the world are howling.

    As you know I think this was a GREAT idea! When you come back I think we should both do “no social media Saturdays” and hold each other to it

    One of my new roommates is from Minnesota and has a Vikings coffee mug. That’s all…
