December 21, 2001
It’s always weird leaving home for an extended period of time. I’m afraid something catastrophic might happen. Fire, flood, the cats peeing on every piece of furniture. I usually spend the last few minutes double-checking everything just to make certain I haven’t left the shower running. I never do.

And what am I dreading most as I walk out the door?

What will await me on my return home: The mountains of snail mail, email and three different newspapers. I’m already overwhelmed with stacks of things that must get done. And a week on vacation only exacerbates this never-ending problem.
