Posts sort of dwindled down and stopped happening when I went to Denver last week. I’m not terribly upset about it, because I made sure that I still accomplished the things that needed to be done. I’m still working through a steep learning curve at work, so most of my head-space has been occupied with learning the new material. I still have not let myself fall completely off of the map, but I haven’t gone for a run since leaving for Denver. Tomorrow I leave for Dallas, so I have to commit myself to running more often upon my return.

While I am in Dallas I will be working for virtually the entire time, and probably will have very little time to sleep. I can’t expect to get much done outside of work, so staying sane will be my only goal for the upcoming week.

Heather and I recently tried a recipe for Gajar Halwa, or Carrot Halwa. This is a delicious Indian dessert made with carrots, milk, cashews, raisins, and cardamom. I will share the recipe as soon as I get a chance to post it. I was surprised with how authentic it tasted. Tonight we will make a Navratan Korma for the first time. If it turns out to be good, I’ll post that recipe too!

Tonight I will be packing, and doing last minute preparations for travel. No matter how often I travel, I always modify my preparation based on lessons learned. Since I am always changing my methods and worrying if I have forgotten something, I will make a checklist. If this checklist is not complete, I will add to it. The next time I travel I can refer to the checklist and update it to reflect my “lessons learned”. Once I finish my checklist tonight I will post it here, and I welcome any suggestions, criticism, advice, etc. (as always).

Enjoy the day!

    Checklists are always useful. They free your mind from having to constantly review the things you have to remember. Remember the “Tabletop” theory!
    Have a nice trip, see you when you get back.
