Weekend Update

Well, it was a productive weekend if nothing else. I did all of my laundry and reformatted my laptop.

The amount of laundry was pretty minimal, but I did take the time to hand wash all of my shirts that can't go into the washing machine. That always takes forever and gives me a backache. I'm glad I won't have to do it again for a while though.

Then, I took the time to lay out all the clothes and things for my trip. It occurs to me that I'll be wearing many hats on this trip, so I'm probably going to end up taking as much luggage as is allowed on the flight. There are your normal everyday clothes. Then, I need multiple suits for these interviews.

I also need some business casual clothes for slightly less dressy, but not completely relaxed events. Then, I need 'going out' clothes. And also, you can't forget swimwear and wedding wear. I'll also be attending an evening wedding while I'm gone, so I've got to take a dressy dress.

And of course, I need shoes and accessories for everything. Of course, finding these is my closet is no problem, but getting them on the plane with me may be. Being 5'10" and wearing size 10 shoes, my clothes take up a lot of space... especially my shoes!

I also have a tendency to wear big necklaces and those take up a lot of room too. Anyway, this morning I'll start trying to put all of the clothes into suitcases. We'll see how that goes.

In addition to my attire, I also have to pack up all of my business stuff. It's going to be a Business in a Box for me for a few weeks. This includes my computer, stationary, notebooks, books, magazines, calculators, other electronic devices and all of their power adapters.

Because of this, I also used this weekend to completely format and reinstall my laptop. Because of all the web sites I visit to do research for my business, spywear had found its way onto my machine. Luckily, it's cleaned up now and ready to go.

The only thing left to install is Apache Server... and I'm hoping my friendly next door neighbor will help with that step! ;-)
