And real life set in with a vengence! My alarm didn't go off this morning. I'm incredibly fortunate that after only 5 hours of sleep after a wonderful but exhausting week, I managed to wake up on my own and look at my clock.
So I only slept 25 minute late, launched into warp speed, made it to work on time, and consumed over 60 oz of caffeinated beverage throughout the day.
This morning's drive was a bit nerve wracking, because Otto apparently felt a bit neglected and was acting fairly sulky. A bit squeely and grindy about the brakes. But he cleared up pretty quickly. Almost certainly just a case of a little rust on the break pads from sitting around for a week and a half. So we've made it up, and he was a very good little car after the first few blocks.
Okay, going to go sort through the three tons of mail I received while gone. Sigh. Civilization may have internet, but it also has junk mail.
Look out this week for a little blogging on my wonderful adventures in Glacier National Park. I went to Canada, yo!
