I had a fantastic time in Boston this past weekend. A college buddy of mine lives there with his girlfriend, and another college buddy flew in from NY. Friday night was a ton of fun, and I found it amusing that the bar we were at used the default background from Windows XP as their "mood setting theme" on many of their TVs.
We survived the night quite well thanks to Berocca and enjoyed our Saturday touring my friend's hometown, Gloucester. The flight home on Sunday was nice and it was awesome walking into a house with kids screaming "Daddy!!". I took the day off yesterday to spend some time with the fam. We made the most out of it with a trip to the Natural History Museum, and some sledding in the fresh snow.
Today, I'm back in the office with no motivation to work. I can't believe how many things I have on my plate right now. Unfortunately, the 100+ e-mails I need to answer, the AppFuse bugs I need to fix, and the Spring Live chapters I need to update will all have to wait. My schedule doesn't permit any real work this week. Instead, I have to fly out to Vegas tomorrow for TheServerSide Java Symposium. The schedule looks really good, so I hope to learn a lot at this show. Julie's flying in Friday night, so it should it be another fun week. With March Madness in full force this week, Vegas is sure to be a crazy place.
