Belly up to the bar,
and be in this space together.

I will be taking next week off. I know it's not great timing, but I don't think there's ever going to be a "good" time to take off while Trump is in office.

More importantly, because I was doing double-duty at BNR/Shareblue most of last year, where I had no time off, I haven't had an entire week away from work since July 2015, and I am burned out like whoa.

So I'm going to imminently flame out if I don't take a much-needed break.

And the mods could all use a break, too!

Because I know myself, lol, I will be very inclined to show up if something major happens, but I'm really going to try not to do that. I got very lax about self-care during a very difficult election and its aftermath, and it's catching up to me.

So, with my apologies, as I know this is an inconvenience for people who depend on this space for their news, I am going to take a week, and I will see you back here Monday, April 17.
