I was tempted to go home early after my conference call this morning, but then I looked at my 3 page to-do list (in 10pt font) and thought, no way. I'll be at home and think of work and then what? It also struck me this morning OMG I AM GOING TO BOSTON NEXT WEEK which was additional motivation. When I come back it'll be October, just like when I returned from Seattle it was September.
I just don't like feeling behind; I'm still catching up after my Pacific Northwest trip, and then this week I was out of the office for two days for meetings. I'm sure if I analyze my time more closely I'll find that I spend a lot of my time responding to other people's requests, and then run out of time and energy to actually do what I need to do.
I can't believe I'm about to type this...but I've developed a soft spot for Boston. If you get a chance, I recommend breakfast at Sorella's in Jamaica Plain followed by a walk around Jamaica Pond. Or at least a walk along the Esplanade beside the Charles. Laurel is a very nice and surprisingly "frugal" restaurant a block from Back Bay Station. And of course you should stroll through Hahvard Yahd.
Je te souhaite un tres bon voyage.
