Take this opportunity to recharge your batteries. Normally, my day
went from 8:30am to 7:00pm. Until I ramp back up, I'm now coming in
at 10am and leaving at 4:30pm and taking a day off here and there.

doing some FM training of the other two writers in the department,
revamping the training program for the main application, fixing some
issues that only I'm aware of in the documentation of another product
I support, etc.
