Worldcon 76 Day 5+3: Home at Last!

Home From Worldcon

I was up early enough to go deal with the legal matters in Yuba City today while Lisa could relax in the hotel room. The title company seems to think that the chain of documents I have is sufficient to prove good title to my late grandparents' property, and some banking that had to be done in the Yuba City branch for my sister with me using the power of attorney she gave me finally got done after the local branch called the Bank of America legal office three times and sent them the documents three times, each time talking to a different person who wanted to see them in a different way.

After we checked out of the hotel, we made a trip to the train store in Yuba City that has a nice selection, and we bought a couple of things. Then we had breakfast about lunchtime at Lumberjack's Restaurant. And then we headed for home.

I learned during Worldcon that there was an extra Fire Board meeting at 6 PM tonight, so we made no more significant stops (although we took one restroom break at Cisco Grove) on the 160 mile drive home. We got home at 4:30, unpacked the minivan, ran to the grocery store for perishables, and made it to the meeting. I'm glad I was there, but I'm not going to write about it, because I am exhausted and have to be up at 4:45 AM tomorrow to do a regular day of work. Normally I would schedule tomorrow off, but since they cut back our time off accumulation, I need to nurse what I have through SMOFCon this year, NASFiC/Westercon next year, and Worldcon next year, besides a potential Albuquerque road trip for next year's SMOFCon. So expect a zombie work day tomorrow.
