I had to go to the office today.  I know, I know, I'm on vacation.  But yesterday I went for a walk at lunch so I'd changed into my tennis shoes and left my work shoes next to my backpack.  When I was getting ready to leave around 3:00 I was still in my tennis shoes and was getting all my shit together as well as answering last minute questions when I remembered I had a check to deposit at the bank on the way home.  So I got out the check and a deposit slip, filled everything out and put them in my purse so I could go through the drive-thru at the bank.  Then I left.  Leaving my dress shoes on the floor in my cubicle. 

Of course I didn't realize I'd forgotten my shoes until I got home and was pulling stuff out of my backpack.  I tried to let it go, telling myself that the shoes would be fine (who would take them?) and they could wait until I came back to work on the 10th.  No good - I was mildly OCD all evening and had weird-ass dreams all night.  So today after I got ready I headed back downtown to the office and got my damn shoes.  Time in the building?  Four. Freaking. Minutes. 

But I'm much more relaxed now so it was worth it.  Had I not gone to get them I'd probably be weirded out all week.

Today included a few errands, some shopping (books and comics) and now laundry.  At some point I need to go to the grocery store, WalMart, and Lowes.  On the agenda this week is mowing the grass, staining the deck, getting my new garage door Wednesday afternoon, and getting the A/C serviced Thursday morning.  And only the garage door and A/C are absolutely required (although if I don't cut the grass its going to take over).  Everything else depends on if I'm feeling it, not to mention the weather.  I intend to leave the grocery/WalMart run until a weekday too. 

As for now, that's pretty much it.  Now if you'll excuse me, there's a book to finish and some more episodes of Babylon 5: Season 1 to watch.

Still no voice today.  Maybe a bit more croak than yesterday but still can't talk.  When I try it makes me giggle.  Giggles with no audio.  It is like living my own silent movie, man. 

The plan for today is to laze about on the couch, drink more hot tea with honey, play some Bejeweled, and pretty much ignore the world.  Its not like I can answer the phone, yo.  So email and text communication only for now.  Work tomorrow should be interesting. 

I doubt I'll be upright enough to do any work on the vacation pictures today.  I know, I'm a slacker.  But sick girl is sick so ya'll are just going to have to wait. 

But here's another teaser for ya:

I'm home.  Got back to the States on Wednesday, back to my house in Indiana on Thursday.  Went to work yesterday, got through all my email, etc.  I'm as ready to get back to work on Monday as I can be.

Woke up this morning with no voice.  No voice at all.  Sometimes I can manage a slight croaking sound but otherwise nada.  I got a sinus infection in Rome on Tuesday, flew back with it (boy was that not fun), but it didn't seem that bad until last night.  Woke up a lot with the coughing and unable to breathe thing.  Today I feel OK other than worn out and, you know, no voice.  So there is tea with honey and couch time. 

The pictures have been downloaded from the camera to the PC.  That is as far as I've gotten.  Don't expect much from me this weekend, OK?  But here's a teaser:

I meant to post sooner but jet lag, sinus infection and work got in the way.  I got home at 1:00 AM Monday morning, slept a very little bit, then went in to work.  I think today is the first time I've felt even remotely human all week.  In the future I plan to build in a day to recuperate from the travel day before I go back to work. 

Still I'm home, the house is still standing, work is, well, work, and life is back to normal.  Italy was fabulous and vacation recap posts will likely start tomorrow.  The pictures have been uploaded to the computer but I haven't done any editing or anything yet.  Eventually they will all be loaded into a set on Flickr.  Soon but not tonight.  Now I'm going to open a bottle of wine, read for a bit, then hit the sack.  I plan to sleep until I wake up - I'm not setting any alarms.  I went to the grocery store tonight on the way home so I wouldn't have to do it tomorrow.  I do need to clean the house but it can wait a day or two, plus it doesn't take more than a couple of hours anyway.
