Home is where the heart is.....

I knew I was tired, but even *I* had no idea how much so.

The flight home was fine. Quick and easy, and no hassle at all. Despite the fact that I have become a serious Airline Snob, I'll do this trip again. No parking fees, no real security line. I was back in THE Valley within 30 mins of landing. I forgot how nice that was. Not to mention that even getting last minute tickets - and flying on weekends - I paid only $200 round trip!

On the drive home I realized the worst thing I could do was have a beer - or 12. So I went to the diner and had me some breakfast. And then, finally, I was home.

Honestly - the place looked like hell. And I couldn't have been happier. I drug up the luggage and went immediately to my bed place. And proceeded to sleep for 6 straight hours. For dinner? Girl Scout cookies and a glass of water. A nice converstation with Richmond and back to sleep. Woke up this morning to the sound of singing birds and the fan blasting in the window. After a shower and some of my really yummy coffee I am starting to feel human again.

I know damned well this next week is gonna be hell on wheels. And I have learned my lesson. No matter what. No matter how. I will bring my laptop home on the weekends. Even if all it does is sit in the corner of the living room, it's coming with me. While things at work were covered, for the most part, I still was working half blind the entire time. Oh, my team flippin' rocked. I will never be able to thank them enough for the way they stepped up and just took care of business so that I could take care of mine. I've never had that kind of support within my team before, and honestly I didn't expect it. I'm thrilled to admit I was pleasantly surprised.

So I owe them. I owe them my focus and my time. This next week will be balls to the walls. I've got to make a trip to Phily in the very near future, and probably Salt Lake. Dallas might well be in the cards as well. It's what ever I need to do. Because it's the least I can do.

I learned a lot of lessons this past week. And I'm just gonna warn you now - I've always figured if it's a good reminder to me, I need to share. That's what the blog is. So just prepare yourselves now. There's a distinct probablity there'll be a soapbox post sprinkled out over the next few weeks.
