All the Sacrificing: August 23, 2015

I am embodying minimalism in a hotel room.  If you can say that when I arrived with one suitcase, a lap top, a briefcase, 2 grocery bags, and my purse.

To be fair, I’m here (in Cape Breton) for work, and I needed all that stuff.  Well, most of it.

It’s amazing when all the distractions are eliminated.  I eliminated everything including the guilt I feel when I shut myself off to do work when I could/should be doing something else.  Tonight, it’s just me in a hotel room, with my computer, and I worked like a maniac.  A happy maniac, but a maniac nonetheless.

Mike and Solomon, who are pining away at home, got 5Down together for me.  Clara and Max are at sleepovers.
