Anyway. You see the difficulty. I think the tentative plan is to fly to Chicago first, lugging as much as necessary since there will be cars on either end. Then fly from there to the Bay Area in early June, still lugging. Then leave most of the stuff at David or Jed's, when I take the train down to L.A. for a week (probably third week of June); travel light. Come back up to the Bay Area for a week or so. Go up to WesterCon in Portland for a few days with Jed (fly?) in early July. Continue on by train to Seattle and visit Kirsten for a week or so. Take the train back to Portland? Fly back? Make Jed or David throw me a birthday part at the end of July? Just hang out in the Bay Area from then until mid-August and fly back to Salt Lake, lugging my stuff.
Something like that, anyway. Looks a little crazy, don't you think?
Today I need to finish up some odds and ends, finish my dishes, clean my room, and then go to Borders for the afternoon. There I will hopefully do the first draft of my Kathryn paper, and also do some browsing for possible authors to solicit BW stories from. I have a student conference at 6, so I'll come back for that. I think I may cook in the morning, so I can just eat leftovers for dinner, rather than expecting to have the energy to cook then. That sounds reasonable, yes? Seems a manageable day, no? I'm really trying to get everything done, but also not work myself into a state in the process. :-)
