I was in the office by 7:00 am on Tuesday for an early meeting. Wednesday, I was in court for another custody hearing, which, for all intensive purposes, went well. However, we need to go back to court in April. I am praying that this process ceases well before my soon to be 15 year old reaches the ripe old age of 18! Wednesday night I flew to New York on a red-eye. Yuck! Thursday, I conducted interviews all day in our New York office while attempting to stay awake. Ditto on Friday. Caught an early evening flight back to Los Angeles after conclusion of interviews. Taught a crochet class on Saturday at Abuelita’s Knitting and Needlepoint in Pasadena. Uh, yeah, I’m tired.
This week I leave LA on Wednesday and head to Chicago. If I don’t have a heart attack from all of this stressful activity, I should be home on Friday night for some much needed relaxation.
The only aspect of traveling for work that I actually look forward to is the uninterrupted aero-knitting or crocheting time. I basically worked a sweater from start to finish to and from NYC.
How cool is that?
A rather time-consuming cabling project will accompany me on this week’s Chicago travel extravaganza. Literally every other stitch hops on the cable needle. It’s nutty, but the results are well worth the effort. Stunning. Hopefully, I’ll plow through a majority of the work while sitting in the tube.
The other cool aspect of what I affectionately refer to as “my internment on the air bus” is the amount of reading I’m able to complete mid-flight. It’s awesome! I was able to read half of a novel in between knitting on my last trip.
I am happy to be home though, if only for a few days. I miss my family, friends and animals. My kitty hasn’t taken kindly to my comings and goings. Hubby and offspring have adjusted, but the cat? Yeah, she’s pretty darned perturbed. Leaves me “presents” all over the house for the entire week following my return from a trip. Totally annoying to be sure.
I have so many FO’s to share. I figured this week I work on Photoshopping everything in the airport. Thank you for being so patient with my intermittent posts! It’s been rough to find the time to attend to my virtual existence. Won’t last forever though. I have a few months of travel-free existence coming soon!
