My seasons and timing are thrown off. Not only is Daylight Savings Time moving up the calender, so is the Halloween Trade Show. It's THIS weekend instead of the middle of March. And I'm so not ready for it.
My enthusiasm hasn't kicked in yet. Maybe I'm still traumatized by incidents from last year's trip. This time should be better, tho. Much smaller group, easier to communicate and keep together... I hope.
I was also initially worried about the weather. I mean, let's face it, Chicago in February is not the most pleasant place to be. But current weather forecasts are saying it should stay relatively warm but rainy. I can deal with rain. Cold is what makes me cease functioning and causes excessive whining.
In any case, I'm preparing for the trip properly. I have a hot stone massage scheduled for tomorrow night and I'm taking Monday off to recuperate. Plus there's a really good chance we could be seeing some real-life dead bodies on Sunday. Here's hoping for a stress-free trip and that I don't come home wanting to kill anyone.
