Last Night on the Road

I got away from Day Jobbe early enough to get out of our hotel before even the extended check-out we'd obtained. We had a couple of errands — I ordered a new hat to replace the one I've been wearing since Aussiecon, and the USPS in Sunnyvale said they didn't have it even though the shipper insisted they did, and I had to go pry it loose with a tracking number; then we had some electronics to buy at Fry's — then headed out of the Bay Area. Aside from a horrid stretch of I-80 between Fairfield and Vacaville, traffic wasn't too bad, and we made it to the hotel in Yuba City by 4 PM. This is our final hotel night on this trip. Tomorrow we go to the storage locker and pick up more boxes, then stop briefly by my sister's house to drop off gifts. Because Lisa and I are both sick, we probably won't even go inside, but instead hand the gifts to my nephew to carry inside. My sister's health is sufficiently fragile that we do not want to infect her with my cold.

It's been a very interesting and exciting summer, but we're tired and both not feeling well. We want to go home and spend some time doing not a lot.
