What a day... had a 7.5 hour trip to Southern Germany today, with many construction sites and traffic jams along the A7. Strangely - much more traffic than usual without any vacations ending. Even the experts had been confused.
Well in France we had quite a lot of people coming back from vacations this Week-End. The town seems to be full of life again. Here we had 3 serious heat waves with temperatures going as high as 41°C (and no less than 25°C at night), which made streets really empty. Now we have storms when temperatures hit 32°C or so, then we lose 15°C overnight, 1 day of light rain, temperatures rise again for a week, another storm, and so on...
Can't somebody please ban me forever with some smirky reason like "Get a job" (OK, I have one) or "spend more time with your children" (Which my job currently prevents by me again sitting alone in a hotel)...
Here I am, on the road again,
There I am, upon the stage,
Here I go, playing star again,
There I go, turn the page...
9 hours of work and here I sit at the hotel, reading requirements and planning the next project. Which I will likely do. Somewhere else.
Well, at least nobody sees me shed a tear about a dog. Which was part of our family for 12 years and now had to die because of lung cancer. Its easier to be alone and have the space for it, than to be with customers and be professional, but its much harder to be far away and alone then, compared to having your family around. And its pretty annoying to feel painfully sad, when I am thinking about the memories that made me laugh last week and at the same time I know that those times are again over. I would prefer trading the time for posting this for just having some minutes to play with him again. But damn, I can't. The time is gone again.
Well, I would be a really poor candidate for a Mars mission with my (lack of) emotional stability, wouldn't I?
