I have a business trip every Thursday for the next three weeks. Tomorrow's is a quick there-and-back jaunt, but next week I'm going to the Type A Mom Conference in Asheville, North Carolina, and the following week I'll be at the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in San Francisco.
I'm crossing my fingers hoping that I won't get sick from all of the flights and exposure to the general public. Just last night I was eating in a crowded restaurant and a guy at the next table started coughing and coughing. I actually slid to the extreme end of my booth seat away from him and ate my meal pressed against the wall. So yeah, I'm a little paranoid about germs.
In other news, it looks like I have two bands going that are both making progress. The new one I joined a couple of weeks ago is already on track to have almost two sets learned by this weekend. The one I'm in with my husband has had a good response to ads looking for a bass player, so I'm hoping we can audition a few on Sunday.
Friday is my sister's birthday, so I'm having her and her family over for dinner. I've already made a chocolate cake roll with caramel praline ice cream filling. For dinner, we're having baked ziti with roasted vegetables, many of which are from my CSA share. Oh, and probably a green salad.
Last but not least, I've started a virtual team for Lee National Denim Day. If you've never participated, the whole idea is that you donate $5 and get to wear jeans to work on October 2nd. Obviously since we don't all work together, the jeans thing is up in the air. However, a $5 donation should be pretty manageable for most people, even in this economy. The money goes to breast cancer research. If you're interested in joining my team, just click here.
That's it for now, folks. Enjoy your Wednesday!
