So, yeah, it’s been a while since I have blogged anything. [Insert complaining about how busy I am – and promise that I will blog more – here]. Truthfully, though, I’ve been freaking busy. Last week at work was full of back-to-back-to-back meetings and focus groups and evenings were full of insane amounts of homework. Then I had classes on Friday night until 9:30 pm, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday. And then, because I wasn’t exhausted enough, I hopped on a red eye flight to Ottawa, since I had to be in a meeting there at 9 a.m. on Monday! Usually I can sleep on planes, but I just could. not. fall. asleep. on this one. I mean, I dozed a bit, but I kept waking up and was achy and freezing, despite having brought a blanket with me. I had a stopover in Toronto that was just long enough to change from my yoga pants and T-shirt into my business attire, then hopped on the Toronto-Ottawa leg of the journey. I landed in Ottawa at 8 am and, miraculously, walked into my meeting at 8:50 a.m., just in time to get breakfast and sympathy over having traveled all night.
My Ottawa adventures included two days of meetings with fellowed grantees to talk about our research projects, and two meetings with MPs to talk about my research, and a wonderful dinner at Sarah & Dave’s. After my MP meeting on Tuesday in the late afternoon, I hopped on a Porter Air flight to Toronto, as I’d decided to take the rest of this week off as vacation to spend with my family!
Anyhoo, perhaps this is why I haven’t blogged lately. I’ve been too busy and tired and whatnot to write anything even remotely coherent. This blog posting is pretty much not even worth reading, but I’m posting it anyway. I’m sleepy and it seems like more effort to delete or re-write than to click “publish.”
I have been taking photos of things to blog about, so I’m sure I’ll blog about something more interesting soon, k?
