My so-called life

By | March 22, 2013

Never let it be said that I don’t lead a glamorous life.

I’m currently on my way back home to Vermont from a business trip to Austin, Texas, which went well, all except for the motherboard in my work laptop apparently suffering some sort of infarction that left it unable to draw power from the AC adapter. So, the battery ran dead, and the laptop won’t run when plugged in…

All of which would merely be annoying if it weren’t for the fact that I fly back to Texas on Sunday morning (to scenic Lubbock this time) and won’t be able to get my laptop fixed by the support team at work. My coworkers apparently dug up a laptop I can borrow but they’ve got to overnight it to me from Plano, Texas. I hope it gets to me; it’d be awkward being on a business trip with no access to work email or files for four days.

Assuming I make it home today, I’ve got an action-packed weekend planned.

I’ll be spending this evening stuffing candy into about a thousand plastic Easter eggs for next weekend’s hunt at my church (I volunteered for the job, no idea why).

Tomorrow I’m signed up to run in a 5K: the Spring Fling 5K/10K, which ironically had its route changed from rec paths to public streets after 10 inches of snow fell this week. They’ve informed us that the streets will not be closed to cars so we are requested not to run more than 2 abreast. Um, yeah. I have a feeling that no personal best times will be set tomorrow.

When I’m done with the race I’ve got to grab my camera and head out to spend the day photographing Vermont Maple Open House Weekend … or at least the first day of it, since I’ll be flying all day on Sunday. I’m on the marketing committee of the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association and I run the Vermont Maple Syrup Facebook page (75,000 ‘likes’ and climbing).

And then it’s time to pack again and head back to Texas. Hello, Lubbock!
