I’m picking up a Zipcar and hitting the road later today for a three-night caregiver’s holiday on Long Island Sound. During my absence, Mrs. T will be looked after around the clock by the doctors and nurses at New York-Presbyterian, whom I have no doubt are equal to the task.
I managed to get three Wall Street Journal columns in the can this past week, meaning that I won’t be bringing work of any kind with me. Instead, I plan to spend the long weekend looking at the water, sitting in a hot tub, watching movies, reading for pleasure, and ordering room service. I might tweet, or I might not. If I don’t, not to worry: I have plenty of nothing to do. Either way, I’ll see you again on Sunday.
