Still Recovering

I had to take today as a sick day, which is a great sacrifice for me because my vacation and sick leave both come out of a common "paid time off" fund and therefore every day I take sick is a day I can't have as vacation. But I needed this one. After checking in with work at 7 AM and telling them I was too ill to get any work done and that I hope to work from home tomorrow, I went back to bed and slept until about 11 AM when the workmen came by with a leaf blower and woke me up. They stuck around the area for about an hour, after which I slept some more. I spent most of the day in bed or on the sofa, although I did do a little bit of catching up on the lower-priority e-mail. Some stuff will simply never be read.

I do not yet have enough energy to work on some of the projects like reducing the MPC meeting minute notes to a minutes document yet. I'm still very much not myself and need more rest before I can get back to normality.

Oh, and in the meantime I've been given advance notice that I may need to fly out to New Jersey for most of the first week of October. This meeting has not yet been confirmed, but I'm making my October travel plans around it. I was supposed to go to Oregon for three weeks starting October 1, but assuming this trip is going to happen, the plan is for me to fly straight to Portland from NJ and spend the three weeks from there. This is less convenient in one way because I can't haul along the extra gear I normally carry when driving, but also means that I'll only have to pay for the travel one way (the return to the Bay Area at the end of October.
