Thank! you! all for your input on my travel dilemma (of my own making). You guys are awesome. Really.
Flib - your comment is the one that finally pushed me onto one side of the fence. But, Erica, you really had me daydreaming of a roadtrip with me, myself and I! But, I'd made up my mind, I'd have myself a little train adventure.
I went to book my train tickets and they had doubled in price within 30 minutes. *sigh*
So, I am on the other side of the fence and will be driving to Omaha! While not the most breathtaking scenery, Nebraska has a presence that is all its own. I think it will be fine, and if it's not, I'll hole up in Ogallala for a night and catch up on some reading for The Thesis. As a co-worker reminded me, "You do know how much your life is worth, right?" So, no crazy interstate driving for me, if it comes to that. But, yes, Bibliodiva, they do indeed know how to plow in this neck of the woods.
Now, if this Forced Vacation in Ogallala is on the way to Omaha, I'll be very, very sad to be missing my sisters for a bit. (Oh, did I mention baby sis A. will also be there?!?! I AM SO EXCITED.)
If I am stuck on the way back to L-town, however, then I'll chant calming meditations for a bit until I am not longer riddled with anxiety about missing work.
Because. Work? Lately? Insane.
That is all I am going to say. It is hard not to complain/obsess/worry/rant about work on this blog. But, if anything is going to bite me in the ass, it would be complaining/obsessing/worrying/ranting about work on this blog. So.
That said, it is back to work for me.
