- Stay relaxed. I'm not a big international traveler, and this is a very stressful week of really challenging meetings.
- Get as much rest as possible. Last time I came home, I was really ill.
- Eat well, & get some exercise!
- Enjoy the trip as much as I can. See the three above. ;-)
- Use any downtime to clean up my budget & get some personal finances coordinated.
- Avoid spending any personal money, save for a small souvenir for the kids. This should be easy.
- Figure out our tax plan. This could be an entirely separate post (and will be), but we just heard back from the accountant, and we owe. . . a LOT. We need to both figure out where to come up with the money, as well as make major changes to our withholdings for the year.
- Finalize our travel budget for the year. I need to attend a memorial service, and I'm reworking a planned trip that will result in more flights, but is the best thing for the kids. All of this means I need to completely re-look at our 2015 travel budget & make some tradeoffs.
That's all for now, and here's the view from my hotel room!
I hope you are able to stay well for the duration of your trip and when you get back home. I usually end up getting sick.ReplyDelete
I managed to avoid getting sick! I'm definitely tired, but so happy that I didn't bring home the flu, like last time. It's helped the jet lag tremendously. :-)Delete
Hope you have a good trip, get plenty of rest and the transition back home is an easy one.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm back, and after a few nights of good sleep (11 hours on Friday!), I'm feeling almost back to normal. We'll see how I feel tomorrow, when I have to be up at my normal 5:30 ;-)Delete
