I'm back home and it felt nice to sleep in my own bed again. Made myself stay up until 23:00 so that I'd re-orient to the timezone successfully. I nearly dropped dead into bed at that point, but woke up at ~09:00 this morning, got up and started working on things. So far the day has been spent almost entirely merging patches, reviewing patches, committing a couple of fixes here and there, going through board email (I was impressed when I counted the board mails in the last year and saw that we do over 300/month on the board list), catching up with the devel lists and replying to mails that had piled up while I was gone.
Still to do includes grocery shopping so I have food to eat in the house, laundry so I have clothes to wear, Google SoC final evaluations, more mailing lists, another handful of emails I need to send out, going through business cards collected at Akademy and as much coding as will fit in between all that. It's going to be a busy day indeed.
At least the cats are happy I'm back; both of them are curled up around me right now sleeping. =)
