I had a week at home this past week.
No really, I was at home.
Trust me, nobody was more weirded out by the concept than me. Although it was fantastic to have my chair, be able to see friends, and relax a bit. I did have quite a bit of work to get done with TechEd upcoming, but it was still a great week. And I apologize for not blogging much recently - I've been a tad preoccupied.
We also did a "surprise birthday" party for Karin on Wednesday night. Had about 8 good friends and family join. A few of us went over to the neighborhood bar afterwards, so it was just like old times.
I don't have a travel note for the week seeing as how I didn't travel.
My five, as suggested once again by Sarah, is five things that are best about a week at home:
- Seeing my friends. By far, this is the hardest part about travel. I feel very disconnected from my life when I'm on the road.
- My chair. Just add a remote and an adult beverage and I'm good for many, many hours.
- Driving my car. I have a 2006 Mazda Miata. Driving a sporty little convertible is one of the greatest forms of therapy.
- Cooking. I love to cook. I got to cook for a couple of friends on Tuesday, which was great.
- My bed. We have a soft-sided waterbed that is possibly the most comfortable thing in the world. Much better than a hotel bed.
