The Bug

As the song goes, "sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug". These last few days, I've been the bug. ...and I ain't likin' it.

I'm on my last work trip of 2011 - and it is a total waste.  TOTAL.

Sure, I'm in Tennessee so it is much warmer than Cleveburg, but that's about all you can say. The work function is totally a waste of time, let alone three days of time.  And in the meantime, I had fires to put out at my client sites. That is tough to do from the office, let alone while ducking in and out of meetings.

I'm ready to be home for two weeks.  Or four.  I don't have foreseeable travel planned for January.  I know that will change, but right now I'm ok with staying at home with my family.  Oh g-d, not my sisters or parents - I mean the husband and kitty.  And we're getting a visit from my sister-in-law and her daughter, so I'm thrilled about that.

Normally, I really like the people I work with, but no one from my team is at this meeting. The two who were scheduled with me bailed - I will hold this against them for a while.  I've opted out of group dinners, as not only was I the only male (not that there's anything wrong with that), but most of these women are shrews. ...and somewhere I'm insulting shrews.

Heading home later today and glad to do it.  Sorry for the uninspired post, but sometimes that is the way that it goes.

In spite of the fact that I totally love my job and appreciate it, I'm ALWAYS ready to get home. The more I'm away on the road, the more I'm ready for home. I totally get it!

I actually just watched a Mark Knopfler concert the other night with mother in law. It was nice for a change of pace. They didn't play The Bug, but they did play Sultans of Swing.
