Yep, I don’t want to hear anymore about the election. It just makes me want to cry. Seriously, we deserve nothing we are so stupid. We deserve a frickin’ dictator.
Okay, I am trying to move past all that. Went out with some friends tonight to Cafe Zanzibar in San Diego–great little cafe, will probably do breakfast there tomorrow, though sadly by myself. A bunch of people left today. The convention center doesn’t open until 10:00 am, which would be great, except it didn’t close tonight until 6:45 pm. Really, do oncologists have nothing better to do except sit in a convention center until almost 7 pm? It was pretty dead that last hour.
Some of the demos I have been doing pretty well, but then I will get the person that tests my knowledge and I realize how little I know about the field. However, I have been pleasantly surprised how well my feet have held up. My danish clogs were a good purchase. I actually wore them out to dinner afterwards instead of changing into sneakers, they still felt good. I managed to buy gifts for Leif and Rowan, though I really haven’t had much free time. I found one shop that sold t-shirts with color-changing designs, so that’s what I bought. I even bought a white (gasp!) tank top and visor for myself, so that when I start running again, I will have something I won’t sweat in as much. Because believe you me, I think I put on 5 pounds here, we’ve been going out to some fantastic restaurants. And there’s been some drinks involved as well. 🙂
So tomorrow I am at the convention in the morning and then I leave midafternoon. I have some misgivings about actually making it home on time though. I have a 35 minute layover in Chicago and it’s the last flight to Madison. Wish me luck because I want to see my babies.
