I'm flying out to Phoenix tonight to spend some days with my wonderful team members out there, and so I will be packing my bags in a little bit.
What used to be a stressful experience, always worrying that I might forget something, is now super easy. I don't have to think, I can just be watching my favorite TV show while I methodically collect all my stuff.
