Well, yesterday I returned from a business trip to Pittsburgh (which I love - born there, went to High School there). I haven't been there in close to 25 years. I wanted to get downtown...I love going through the Ft. Pitt tunnel and BAM you are in the middle of downtown with all the lights and bridges! Unfortunately I didn't get the chance. Work kept me close to the hotel. I need to go for leisure instead of work so I can see all the things I want to.
I'm feeling a little blue. I was in Boston last week, Pittsburgh this week, Dallas and Jackson MS next week. I get a week off and then it's Denver, Sacramento, and Minneapolis. Even though they are troopers, my kids don't like me being gone. I know my DH is taking great care of them while I'm gone, but we all just miss each other. I really don't want to go next week. I leave on Sunday night and don't get back home until very late the following Friday. It may be career-limiting, but I don't think I'll ever do this much traveling in this short time-span again. It's just too tough on me and the family. Frankly, I'm too old for this nonsense. I get the kids little gifts, talk to them every night asking about school and activities, but it's just not the same as being home. This is just too damn hard.
