Daybook 27feb24

One of Jess’s closest friends passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, so we are in Minnesota for the week. Jess flew up Sunday morning while Kirby and I drove up, as Kirby would probably explode or something if he went on a plane.

Kirby as a copilot is lacking: he slept most of the trip, has no eyes, and is also a dog. But he made up for it by being a good boy and cute.

Yesterday was spent getting sorted, rescheduling appointments, and figuring out what the shape of the week is going to look like. It’s like planning and executing an impromptu vacation but for the most tragic of reasons, and the destination is Minnesota (don’t @ me, Minnesotans, ’tis merely a jape).

The view from our hotel room yesterday. Don’t be jealous.

Today, we moved into an Airbnb that is more Kirby-friendly, though the view is not as picturesque as this alluring urbanscape. I was able to get some work done while we waited for a thing to happen that ended up being pushed to early tomorrow morning.
