“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

My current travel schedule has me on the road 50% of the time between January 29 and March 6.

My husband has threatened to take a picture of me and hang it on the refrigerator so my son would remember what his mother looked like.

I was not amused.  Not amused at all.

Thankfully, after March 6, it should be over for the year, but between now and then, my calendar reads like the Bataan March of Business Travel.  There are weeks where I will not spend more than 3 consecutive days in a single time zone.  And I am not talking New York City and LA here.  I am talking rural Tennessee, Oklahoma, Iowa and Idaho.

Oh yes.  Us professional girls.  Life is so very glamorous.

    But do you get to keep your frequent flyer miles? B/c then you should take a very nice trip with the family.

    Oh, and are you coming to DC?

    Oh, honey. I’m sorry. Good news is: you get to get it OUT OF THE WAY and then be with your boys for the rest of the year. But meanwhile: this sucks. 🙁 *hug*
