Not Going to MPLS Next Week
I hadn't at all anticipate all the work I'd get over the past week, and when time came to actually contact people for the trip, instead of a joy it was One More F***ing Thing I had to do. The thought of not going came as a relief. The more I thought of my chances to work and relax if I stayed home, the better it seemed. But I really do want to see people, and I seesawed. The deciding factor was today realizing that right now I am either getting or avoiding getting a cold, and sleeping a lot (instead of making preparations to go out of town) may make the difference.
A double annoyance: womzilla really won't be able to see anyone. I had known all along that he'd be working all day and with work friends at a baseball game the one evening he has in, but I was ready to see people. Now he can't even be social in my place.
However, this is only the first of his business trips, so I'll be able to go in the future. For now, I'll be sleeping (&, I hope, not getting fully sick), working, gardening, going to yoga (which I missed last week due to tiredness) and other good things at home. And missing y'all.
Status: TV, then back to bed
