10/10/09 — Five days of school visits done in MIssouri. Since I’ll be in the area until next Thursday (one more day in Lee’s Summit, then three in the Kearney area), I’m spending the weekend away from home. Today I’ll do laundry, write a bunch, read, and cap it all off by watching a football game on the tube. Tomorrow is my day for a seven mile run, then more writing. At home I write standing up. I find it to be less tiring than sitting for hours. Here, in the hotel room, that’s not a choice, so I’ll be doing lots of sitting and writing. Which is fine. I always try to make the best of what I have. All I really need is my lap to set my laptop on. Anything else, like this nice desk in my room, is gravy!
