Israel

Talia took Felix to Israel to meet his great-grandparents when he was four months old. She can tell that story elsewhere. For me, what was remarkable about the trip was the use to which I put my ten days or so of free time. I worked. I didn’t sleep, I didn’t do much socializing, I just wrote up a multi-page to do list and went at it. It felt so good to be able to get things done. It felt better than sleeping in, or going out, or just relaxing.

You lose control over your time when you have a baby, but you respond by getting a lot more efficient with how you use it.
