Science fiction didn’t get it all wrong.

I had a holiday letter from Rich and Tricia when I got home this evening. Also, there was a large box from Amazon which is the package that Mom admonished I not open until we are able to do a video chat and the folks can watch me open it. We’ve scheduled the video chat for tomorrow night. This is one place, certainly, where science fiction got it right. I remember watching The Jetsons as a kid, with their video phones. Three decades later, here I am, able to allow Mom and Dad to watch me open my gift live, even though I’m 2288 United miles away!


Night’s where I work out in the evening are tough. I got home from work after 6:30 and by the time I’d finished my dinner and packed my lunch, it was already 8 PM. I’m supposed to be off to bed now because I’ve got to get up at 4:30 but I haven’t even had time to unwind yet, let alone to anything else. Yet another reason to avoid evening workouts when I can.

Into work and then back home

I got up and went into work as usual this morning.

Just before 9 AM, I figured I’d check on the status of a package I was expected to be delivered later this week. I hadn’t heard anything on it, and when I last checked, it hadn’t even shipped yet. However, when I checked this morning, it was already out for delivery today. And I need to be home to sign for it.

So I headed back home at 9 AM, to work from home for the rest of the day and wait for my package to be delivered. I’m home now, working on an exciting PowerPoint presentation for a meeting later today.

No package yet.
