March 29, 2007: Pittsburgh

There is no rest for the weary. At least last night I managed to pull off a real, full night’s sleep. It is a good thing because this morning I discovered that I really am needed in Pittsburgh and that I have to run out there tonight! I don’t have any spare time and since I am working from home today I need to be in the office tomorrow. That means that I have to drive to Pittsburgh tonight (in rush hour, no less) which Google Maps says is six hours away. Three hundred and sixty miles. And I have to do it round trip in a single night while stopping in the middle to work after having put in a full day and then go to the office in the morning. At least it is Friday. That is the equivalent drive of going to somewhere between Columbia, South Carolina and Augusta, Georgia! Seven hundred and twenty miles round trip (from here to Columbia is just seven hundred!)

Oreo spent the morning, and the early afternoon, lounging in the sunlight pouring through the windows. I worked from home and managed to catch up on my RIT homework as well.  I am glad that I was able to get caught up on my homework.  I would hardly want to have that hanging over my head while I am traveling tonight.

I was able to escape Newark around five this evening.  It is going to be a REALLY long night.  I hope to be able to go to bed at some point but it seems unlikely at this point.
