Spirit Sol 24

I take the day off.

[And here's how I feel about that, five years later.


Well, OK, not really. There was nothing going on on Spirit, and my attitude was slipping some -- I'd been working a lot of overtime even before landing, and I'd had a stressful month without a single day off.

So this is probably exactly what I needed, to recharge my own batteries and be able to properly enjoy the experience again. But I wish it hadn't been.

Oh, yeah, and: as far as I know, only one person on MER -- Bob Deen -- worked the entire 90 sols of our prime mission without taking a single day off. And he's never let me forget it.]
