I am avoiding preparing my talks and am packing instead. I think this is the first time I have been packed three days in advance. I am usually up until the moment of departure rearranging bags, adding more and more to my pile, shopping for last minute necessities. This time, I believe I am finished, both for my daughter and for myself.
I am also avoiding cleaning up my house after a wild New Year's party. I am getting accustomed to finding confetti on every surface.
No more excuses...back to reading my slides and reviewing my stories.
