I can think of little beyond our upcoming visit.Â The couple of brain cells left over are thinking about work.Â I just have to get through work today and tomorrow.Â Over the weekend, I will pack 2 suitcases for myself â€“ one for DC and one for Guatemala.Â Saturday we are attending a little holiday dinner with some extended family.Â Otherwise, I am free to sleep and pack.Â I havenâ€™t been sleeping well.Â It looks like Steve has been punching me in the face because my normal dark circles now look like baggy bruises.Â So Friday night and Saturday night I will be self-medicating with Tylenol PM.Â Monday morning I will leave for DC.Â I have a little anxiety over driving to my conference in DC.Â Not because I dislike driving long distances but because I despise traffic in DC.Â (If you see a desperate blonde with PA plates, for the love of God, let her merge!)Â I printed out directions and there are an insane number of highways and surface roads involved in getting to my â€œconveniently locatedâ€ hotel.Â Iâ€™m hoping I can ditch the rubber chicken dinner early enough to wander down to see the mall at night â€“ supposedly the hotel is less than a mile from it.Â Tuesday evening I will return home.Â Tuesday night it will be impossible to sleep â€“ although not for reasons related to insomnia.Â Wednesday morning at 4:00am we will leave for the airport.Â
See how boring I am? Weâ€™ve been over all of that before â€“ although in less excruciating detail.Â Hello, Department of Redundancy Department.Â The only other thing I can think of to mention today is:Â HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS EMMA!Â Carlaâ€™s little one is 1 today.Â And I could tell you about the perfect salads Iâ€™ve been making for lunch all week (spring greens, raspberries, pecans, chicken and feta with a light pear vinaigrette) but that would be just plain silly.Â I could complain that I have a meeting about a meeting this afternoon.Â But that is bureaucracy for you.Â Iâ€™ll try to have something interesting to say tomorrow.
