I'm in Indiana, PA today and tomorrow for my son's college orientation. Long boring day, though lots of useful info and food for thought.
We stayed at a lovely B&B last night in a place called Dilltown. Had the whole darn place to ourselves! Beautiful old house and garden on a creek and right next to a hiking/biking trail. Might actually have to travel the trail one of these days!
Breakfast was very nice, but the poor woman had to get there at 5am to have everything ready for us to eat by 6 - we had to be off by 6:30! Wonderful eggs and ham and blueberries. Plenty of excellent coffee.
Late this morning at the orientation, though, I was starting to feel pretty hungry, and all they had was the standard carb crap - muffins, bagels, and pastries, plus oj and coffee (no decaf). For once I didn't have any munchies with me and I was starting to feel a little low in the blood sugar department. I looked over the table again thinking I might have to resort to eating some of the junk when I spotted a big bowl of jelly packets. Nestled amongst them were cream cheese packets. Hurray! I was saved! Luckily no one noticed the lunatic in the back of the hall eating a couple of the cream cheeses with a plastic knife. I managed to survive another hour until lunch at 12:30.
It poured buckets as I made my way to the dining hall. I kept the top third of me dry, and my purse and bag, but the rest was pretty soggy.
More indoctrination all day tomorrow, and then we're done at 5pm. Two hour drive home and then we can enjoy the weekend. I did manage to get a few "action items" off the college list today (some financial aid info I needed, and some contact info he'll probably need before school starts).
Challenge 1: Add activity at home to my must-do list.
Challenge 2: Bedtime is now going to be 11:30.
Challenge 3: Leave work on time. It'll all be there in the morning. Whatevs.
