Easing back into real life

14 October 2008

I’m home from my latest trip. And I’m here to stay for awhile! It’s nice to be back sleeping in my own bed, though I’m feeling a little foggy. I blame Pip, my standard poodle, who had me up in the night several times last night needing to go out.

While I enjoyed my various trips and conferences (three trips, two conferences, one trade show and vacation with family), being away so much is throwing me off my game. I feel a bit as if I don’t know which end is up.

I always have difficulty with reentry when I’ve been traveling and it’s because it it takes me a little while to get back into my daily routines. It really emphasizes the power of routines.

I took care of some essentials today, but tomorrow I’ll shake the cobwebs out of my head and really go to town with my to-do list. I’m going to do some big-picture brainstorming and get a handle on what I need to be doing. I feel as though I’ve my business on hold to a certain extent and it’s time to dive back in. And that includes daily blogging. Watch this space!

This is relevant to nothing, but since I have this picture in my computer, I have to share. It’s my niece, Miranda, and nephew, Taylor, sitting in the rumble seat of the Model A Ford, owned by my aunt, Gwen Gerow. This was right before they left for a ride around Walla Walla. (The photo was taken by their father, Larry.)

That's the way to travel!
