The past two months have been a stark change of pace for me. I’ve hardly touched an IDE all summer, while taking care of the household and doing fun stuff with my 3yo son.

I’ve certainly taken coding breaks before but this is nearing record lengths. Parental leave will be starting soon, too, when the new baby is born, so coding will be taking a back seat likely until mid-August.

Maybe it’s best to lean into it and invest some time into music, drawing and painting, if this can be done piecemeal while sleep-deprived…
