I’m leaving on Wednesday to hop across the country – a few days in Illinois, with my CAS defense in the middle, followed by about a week in the Pacific Northwest, with a conference presentation in the middle. I’m not anxious about either of the presentations, but I am feeling overwhelmed about being away from home for so long. Other than that, it’s been a lovely sort of long weekend. We got ~4 inches of snow between last night and this morning, which was enough to cause delayed openings for both of our works, which was enough to convince both of us to work from home. I didn’t leave the house at all today. It was fantastic, and probably just the sort of thing I’ll need again after two weeks away.
