Preparing to Depart

My part of the mega project here in Aurora wrapped up yesterday (on schedule; we'd already planned it this way because the way our deadlines were structured, if I hadn't finished by this morning, it would have been too late for the people depending on my work to be able to use it). What I think was my final contribution to this phase of the project was to dial in to today's 8 AM CDT daily status conference call to confirm that they had nothing further for me to do. And they did not. I might stop by the office on the way to the airport to drop off a couple of leftover Diet Cokes, but that's about it.

Our flights back to California are not until about 3 PM. (Cheryl's United flight leaves about 30 minutes before my American flight.) Therefore, I could sleep in a bit here and take it easy. Check-out time is 11 AM, and we plan to stay here until the bitter end, then drive back to O'Hare in which I hope will be not particularly heavy mid-day traffic. What luxury! I so much like not having to get up at 2 AM so I can fight my way to the airport for a crack-o-dawn flight somewhere.

    It's too hot to think of anything, so I'm not going to do so. Maybe if I can get the fans running sufficiently in a dark room I can cool down enough…
