  • Mood:

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow

Terribly busy getting everything that needs to be done out of the way before I board the train for Chicago on Monday. That's always the way things are before a trip, and in this case I'm thankful to be heading out on a Monday afternoon. A midweek departure for a trip of this size would ruin me.

(Two more get-ups until departure! Five more get-ups until I see barlow_girl!)

Worked through my day off yesterday. It's bothersome how little focus I have toward the end of projects sometimes, making them take far longer than would otherwise be necessary. When tying up loose ends, I sputter.

Today includes a trip to The Elliott Bay Book Company to find a copy of Atlas Shrugged for the train. Inventory tells me it's on the shelves, so I look forward to emerging victorious. Also on the agenda is completing the quarterly volunteer schedule for the church, one of those seemingly endless tasks that can eventually only be completed Old Yeller style: when it gets bad enough, you have to take it out back and shoot it (sorry about the spoiler).

Tomorrow, unfortunately, is swamped, with another midday wedding on top of the usual schedule. Not so bad, though, as long as I just don't count on doing anything beyond the tasks at hand. More loose ends on Monday morning; then, I'm off!

P.S. kamikaye and ultimateswing will likely have to wait a bit for the 20 facts meme from me. If I don't get to it sooner, it will be a nice diversion on the train.
