|11/1||Woke up at 6:00AM. My throat is still kind of sore so I woke up in the middle of night few times. After taking a cold medicine, it was a smooth sleep until the morning. The temperature in the morning was 33F, just as predicted. The radar shows some snow in the southern Indiana. Went to work on time. I had to make a field trip, and a phone call to competitor to get some information. I had an evening meeting so I did not come home until 7:00PM. I cooked noodles because I was not in a mood of cooking rice because of a trip tomorrow.|
|11/2||I needed to go to other office from today, so I
left my apartment around 8:30AM to pick up my rental car. I got a 2006 Chevy
Cobalt this time. The car runs okay but both trunk and gas tank cover needed
to be opened by hand. It's a pretty cheap car. At least I can drive okay. I
drove on I-69 to the north, when I reached to Michigan border, I saw a pack
f cloud looks like bringing snow. Just as I predicted, it was snowy when I
was driving on the I-94. The road got really slippery in the night and I had
to drive carefully on the way to the hotel. Had lunch at Burger King, and
dinner at Red Robin's. I hoped to get burger there but I cannot just eat
burgers all day so I had a salad instead. My cold is getting worse.
Driving in a snow is not cool.
|11/3||I could not sleep much because of the cold. I woke up at 6:00AM and stretched my body. Now I am getting my cough bad. I reported to work at 8:00AM, had meetings with customer whole day. I had lunch with coworkers at a Japanese restaurant. I went back to hotel around 8:00PM, picked up some medicine at a grocery store and dinner at Applebee's on the way back. I went to bed by 11:00PM but kept waking up because of the cough. I think I worked too much today...|
|11/4||Woke up at 6:00AM. Had breakfast at the hotel. I
start to drove back to Indianapolis around 8:00AM, but became very sleepy on
the way. I had to take a break at a rest area for about 15 minutes. Came
back to Indy around 1:00PM, stopped by office to do the paperwork. Went to
bed around 11:00PM after calling home with sick voice.

|11/5||Just came back from a business trip and now I am
heading to Mexico for another. I have been sick quite a while so I hope I
can get over with it. The plane left for Dallas Fort Worth. Unfortunately a
storm was threatening our path so instead of approaching from the northeast,
we had to fly to northwest before landing. The plane to McAllen was okay and
had no problem, got picked up by a shuttle van to the hotel and spent
evening okay. Went to a restaurant near by, and also a convenience store to
get some water.
Waiting for departure at Indianapolis Airport

|11/9||Arrived at airport and only to realize the
flight has been canceled. I used the power and internet connection at the
airport until noon to work on the assignments. Got on the plane and arrived
at Dallas Fort Worth. I could take free offer to the first class upgrade for
the flight to Indianapolis but I did not feel like it, until I saw them got
served with dinner! Next time, I will not miss my free upgrade. Came back to
Indy but had to work on the report so I stayed at office until 10:00PM. Went
to bed around midnight.
I am glad my business trip days be almost over, for now...
|11/10||I did not get up until 8:00PM. I must have been
pretty tired. I got showered and headed to work. Stayed whole day just
taking care of the stuffs. It was a bit humid but I liked it that way
because I don't like the rapid transition from the hot to cold. Stopped by
bank in the evening before heading to home. The sky was pretty in the
evening although I know the rain is coming.
The sky is pretty in the evening. Although it is dark because of the rain cloud approaching from the west.

Stopped by haircut place to get refreshed. Unlike last weekend. I had my time and not coughing so I was able to talk to my mom on the phone for a half hour.
