Until this trip, the past couple of months of travel were uneventful. I got a little spoiled with on time flights, no lost baggage, and smooth travel. Then I made this trip. I participated in a great Pretrial Research Roundtable at John Jay in Manhattan sponsored by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. I then traveled to Princeton to present at a Municipal Court Judges Conference. The ride between Manhattan and Princeton was stunning. It reminded me of how much I miss fall foliage. This trip was also proceeding flawlessly, until I returned home with the flu. And I mean the flu. I was down and out for about a week. It was BRUTAL! I know, I know, I should have gotten the flu shot. And I was going to, as soon as I returned home from this round of travel. 😀 If you are reading this and it is still flu season, please, get your flu shot!
