It was starting out like any other adventure here at Casa Prosapio. I was at half a dozen virtual meetings while Adam, my husband, had a mid-week break from his job in Austin. The thing that’s dangerous about mid-week breaks for him is he still has a feeling that he should get things done.

I don’t get it. If I got a surprised day off, I’d probably binge watch some sci-fi or a British detective series. But in his business, surprise days off are more common so he’s more likely to find something productive to do. Usually this involves rearranging his garage or workshop (which he does every two months). Afterward, his activity results in a sore back and a promise to take it easy the next time, a promise I no longer believe but try to support.

Winter Prosapio is a writer, a wife, and a working mom of two girls, two cats, and one ridiculously enthusiastic terrier mix.
