You call this a vacation?

When we were looking for postdocs, Michelle and I decided that we wanted to take a few months off between finishing grad school and starting our postdocs. We thought we could spend some time relaxing at home, and also do some travelling.

For the first four weeks of "vacation," we stayed with my parents in Calgary. It was pretty relaxing, but what did we do with our days? On one hand, we spent a lot of time researching and meeting with wedding vendors. On the other hand, I made the (perhaps foolish) decision to apply for postdoc fellowships right away, so I wrote a research proposal in about 2 weeks.

Not my idea of vacation.
