I am flying in early on Monday as I would have to leave midday Sunday to make it in during the evening - and that would mean seeing LO for less than 24 hours (and handling her logistics too).
I'm also hoping to land on Monday and get to the convention center within an hour and 15 minutes. Hopefully that can happen. My coworker who really doesn't want to go to the event is flying in on Monday night.
I just realized that I only have one good outfit for this trip and my gig is for three days. Also, I think my smallest bag is not quite carry on size. Not sure if they will let me bring on my travel bag, laptop and big bag that doubles as a purse when I travel.
Best part about this trip? I've been so busy at work that I don't have materials...I have to do a Kinkos run tomorrow and I don't have time (and my executive actually won't be at this thing, he'll be on vacation...)
In other news...
-Work is busy. As I was writing this, my work laptop just rebooted itself from across the room. No idea why.
-Having two days to myself last week didn't really get me anywhere in terms of feeling peaceful, but at least I feel less burned out.
-I miss LO a lot & can't wait to see her. I have not heard from her since last week, but from the camp pictures, she looks like she is having fun.
-For the latest WTF from the ex. He pulled the paperwork to change what he pays in support. We were supposed to go to a judge later this month, but he had to bring his tax form from last year. My attorney thinks either he is feeling bad or he doesn't want us to see the form because he has a jump in income. I think it is the latter. I have not decided what to do.
On the dude front:
-I had a date with an older guy (+13 yrs, if he was telling the truth) last night after work at a "trendy" bar near his place in the city. About professional subjects, he was fine to talk to and had a few interesting things to say. That is about the best spin I can put on last night.
Because the date was with a guy who had some personality tics along with a bigger ego than he should. And by big ego I mean, he dyes his hair (homeboy unfortunately was not maintaining the dye job correctly and he had grey at his temples...yes it was that distracting). He also did the old college try to mention, uh sexy subjects wherein I changed the subject. He suggested getting margaritas (he had two) but I think I flinched once or twice when he was licking the salt off of the rim of the glass - my eyes, not a pleasant visual.
Also, I have blisters on my feet as I parked in the wrong parking garage and ended up walking 10 blocks in heels.
-And because it was going to happen. National Guard guy wrote me yesterday "as a friend". This is what, two weeks after he told me he was seeing someone. And a week before he would be in my area for a night. I was not a happy camper - I had told him when he reappeared texting a few weeks ago that I didn't want something casual. And, after his last text about seeing someone, I would have been fine not hearing from him ever.
The thread devolved from "he wanted to keep in touch" and he didn't have any "hard feelings" to he might "look me up" if the thing with this girl ended. I told him, if that was the case, to think of me when he was with her. He did not like that at all. He said that he thought I was cool but why was I so bitter? He also said that he would not contact me.
So that is that - it's midnight and I need to eat a little something and catch a few hours of sleep before it starts again tomorrow.
