I have business trip to Denver next week (the one that's keeping me from getting to OddCon). My father will probably come to Atlanta while I'm gone, and will be ensconced in my guest room on my return. We'll go to a memorial service for a friend in Athens (Ga.) Saturday, then he'll stay the following week and we'll go to the Georgia Botanical Society spring wildflower pilgrimage in the north Georgia mountains the following weekend. Taxes are due the week after that.
I have a list waiting at work of Things To Be Done in prep for the Denver week, some of which needed to be completed a couple of months ago. This list is too long to complete tomorrow, my last day in the office before leaving.
I have a list of Things To Be Done at home before going, ranging from getting the taxes further along, to getting the guest room ready, errands, appointments, meetings, and on and on. This list is too long to complete before I leave Sunday, and I compounded the problem by deciding to go to a seminar at Emory tomorrow night and all day Friday on Water in Our Lives. (Hey, I'm a hydrologist. It's being held 15 minutes from my house, at my alma mater. I'm curious as to what they have to say.)
