Well, I missed yesterday. Worked and then ran a couple errands before heading to tournament night for volleyball that went on until around 11. Not too many brain cells to fire off a post after that day. But, the team is headed to Finals Night next week so at least we felt accomplished.

Probably going to miss a few days this week as I am headed to Chicago tomorrow for work. We are attending a conference and will be tied up at night socializing with clients and business partners. It will likely be late nights and again, few brain cells still awake when the time to write a post rolls around.

I am not a big fan of business travel. Some of the conferences are nice simply because they are in fancy resorts in temperate places. And with the friendships I have made with clients and partners over the years, it is nice to see people you only get to see a couple times a year. But many times the socializing can be tiring and you have to be on your game (don’t say the wrong thing, try to engage with the right people, etc.) for long hours.

Add to that just the simple woes of travel. Flight delays and security lines. Cramped plane seats and crowded airport restaurants. By the time you get to your destination you have already had to fight your way through a couple of normal days. And most of the time I try to limit the overnights but maximize the time at a client so I leave on the first flight out and am fatigued before the day has even started!

With this trip I have to make sure I soldier through and get home on time. I come home Friday and graduation is Saturday. It is going to be a busy few days. I will need some recombobulation when it is all over!!
