Ten years later
Wednesday, September 11, 2019
Signed up a while ago to be a back up on a project. Didn't know what that meant, as I'd never done that before. I held off for signing up for a couple things this weekend because there was an off chance I'd be heading out of town. But the project started over the weekend, and thinking I'd not been selected, I went ahead and signed up for those events.
So apparently, not getting called to go down to Arkansas at the start of the project didn't mean I wouldn't get a call eventually. That call came today. At 641 I got a voice mail. At 648 I called back and was told that the position had been claimed. At 8 pm or so I got another call, saying the other person's babysitter situation wouldn't allow them to get away on such short notice. So I called back around 9 and I was in. Only, I was out at a concert, hence the delay in calling back, and was going to stay there until my friends from Wisconsin had played their set. So now it's near midnight and I have to book a flight. And pack and do laundry maybe not in that order.
But I'll be in Arkansas tomorrow. Never have been to that State, so it's another place to check off the map.
Only for a week, though, so I suspect I won't get to do any touristing. And I'm not even sure where I'm going (flying in to Fayettesville). Kinda flying very seat of the pants here, but that's just the way it goes sometimes.
Amusing part is that I was supposed to go to Arkansas ten years ago, but my portion of that trip ended up getting cancelled. Finally getting down there. Better late than never!
