I had the main day of my work-related “retreat” yesterday. We got started at 8 AM sharp and finished up just before 9 PM. I felt like a limp noodle when it was all over. Sitting around in a conference room all day and talking can be extremely draining. We were well-fed, breakfast, lunch and dinner. But it was still a long, tiring day.

We have the second part of our retreat tomorrow (Friday) from 8 AM – noon.

There was some light at the end of the tunnel, however. The Yanks beat the Red Sox to take 2 out of 3 from them in the recent series.

I got back to the hotel at 9 PM, went right to bed and slept in late. I didn’t get up until 6 AM and I skipped the gym this morning.
