Well, I’m back from the Entomology conference, and I’m now snug in my house, looking at the snow fall. (I also know for sure that I’m back in rural Michigan, because I can see my neighbor and his gun stomping around in the corn fields. 10 inches of snow doesn’t seem like ideal hunting weather to me, but what do I know?)
Every time I travel, I realize again that I am, in fact, very much a homebody:
“Noun. 1. homebody – a person who seldom goes anywhere; one not given to wandering or travel”
That’s me! I like seeing all my friends, and seeing some cool new research, but dang I am SO GLAD to be back at home. If my husband didn’t prod me to go outside and interact with people socially, I’d probably never leave.
They really need to hurry up with that Star Trek transporter technology. That would be perfect. Then I could travel–and return home immediately.
So, hopefully, I’ll be back on the job, back to writing more about what I learned at the meetings, and back to (slightly) more informative pieces. For now, though, I’m watching the snow fall, hoping my neighbor has hot coffee with him out there in his blind, and just staying in bed. Home.
