Calls went well. Some leads that I forgot I had.
Just need to convert. Think this new covid wave or variant or whatever it’s called has everyone sheltering prematurely, or working from home. Not many in office here, at least not from my team. Lunch today with IT partner, then after that back to Nook office. Need to get groceries for kids, food and whatever else.
Nervous about having them for the weekend, how I’ll keep them entertained, amused, happy. I’m overthinking it, I know. Checked weather, should be cloudy and cold from what I see. I’ll figure something out. I know I’m thinking about it too much. And when in about, ask them what they want to do and just do that. Right?
Hungry already. What snacks are in the market in the break room. Can’t remember. When I went back there last looked like they hadn’t re-stocked in a while. Probably from more people working from home, AGAIN.
Just had a thought about leaving but ignoring it.
Students asks about a grade change, and I accommodate. Just to be done with it. Does the student deserve it? No. But I want to be done. Set aside more time for writing, and the AE story, and my wine story – the new draft. Even thinking about “teaching” for a second is disruptive and honestly anymore just annoying.
Looking for as many wine pictures as I can, on this laptop and in phone. Friend tells me she has to drive to Napa to take a rapid covid test, and how annoyed she is. While I understand, I envy the drive over Calistoga Road.
Thinking of my morning vineyard walks at Roth, either with Jesse or by myself. Miss that… how do I get back there. I know, the business plan I told them about – make money in tech, sell out, make wine and watch vines grow and write about it till I’m gone. Sounds simple enough.
