The bad news:
I have gained a gazillion pounds on this business trip. So much so that I had to buy a new pair of jeans. OMG, yes, the horror.
I really don't miss Jersey. I just don't feel comfortable here at the local office. Could never work there permanently. So let's not even think it.
I'm not even sure I miss having a dog around. Don't get me wrong. Chad is lovable. Definitely. But the independence has been rather liberating. The longest I've been without a dog in 12 years. No need to rush right back from work, no need to worry that I didn't let him out before going out, no need to wonder if he got enough exercise, food, attention, etc.
I might feel differently without Duncan here. He gives off that unconditional love so that I don't feel too lonely.
And by the way, love life: non-existent (not that it could be anything else while on a business trip)
The good news:
My brother and I are going to Monday night's Red Sox game - IF there is one. In other words, IF they don't win Sunday night's game (which would mean a sweep of the Angels). I would never ever wish for my beloved boys to lose, especially not at home. So I will be shoutin' loud and proud from my hotel room tonight, hoping Beckett pulls off a win - oblique strain and all. However, if by some chance the Angels pull off a win tonight, then tomorrow night my brother and I are SRO in left field! Jason Bay territory!
Saw Bill Maher's Religulous. Very interesting.
