I do find time to walk Bailey in the Park (that's how I know the tulips are almost gone). And I did go to Syracuse for a conference over the weekend. The New York finger lakes district is really beautiful. I stayed with a friend who has a house (built in 1872) on one of the lakes, which was much better than having to park at the local Holiday Inn, I tell you.
Other than that, I'm all-work-all-the-time right now. I hope that things ease up a bit once the June 5-8 conference is over. For me, it's the "Little Red Hen Conference," after the fable of the little red hen who did all the work planting, tending, and picking the corn, though she had all sorts of volunteers to eat it. I'm the little red hen on this. But as far as I'm concerned, everyone's welcome to eat all they want, as long as they don't bitch and moan about anything. The time for "advice" passed about three weeks ago.
I'm taking Friday off so that I can have a 4-day weekend before the onslaught. It really is time to break out the seasonal clothing and put away the wool. That should help, right?
