"Normal" is like the "good old days"...
It's just a figment of your imagination... selective "rememory".
Or as a quote in a book I read the other day stated:
"I've learned that 'normal' is just a setting on my washing machine."
I thought I had divided my life into pre-ILUG and post-ILUG, and that life would slow down in the post-ILUG phase. Yeah, right... I'm now looking at pre-Orlando and post-Orlando, with FAR too much that needs to get done on the work, professional, and personal front in the pre-Orlando phase. As such, that's why you haven't seen much of me here lately (and why Fluffy's MySpace page isn't being updated much).
I leave to go get Ian from Orlando next week. I fly out of Portland around noon, get to Houston around 6, hang around until 9, and then get into Orlando around 1 in the morning on Friday. Ian works his last day on Friday, we'll pack on Saturday, and then start driving early Sunday morning. I'm due to be back at work on Thursday, so we'll be pushing hard. For those who offered places to stay on our return trip, thanks. But I really don't know where we're going to stop and how long we'll drive on each leg. I plan on plugging in the GPS unit, saying "Destination Home", selecting "Shortest Trip By Time", and then driving off into the sunset.
The laptop will be packed, but I'm unsure as to how much (if any) blogging will be done on the road. I thought I'd make a real production out of the trip down there, but that didn't transpire. Now with one less driver coming back (just Ian and I) and one less day (but we're going direct this time), who knows if the laptop will even see the light of day...
