I’m most reachable in the afternoon. (How to contact me)

I’m back from a lot of traveling: in the last 3 weeks I’ve been to Miami for work, a week of vacation in New York state, and the Mexico-Guatemala border for work. Today is the third day in August when I’ll be in Washington.

That means today is a catching-up day for me, getting through what’s in all the inboxes that have accumulated while I’ve been away, and checking in with colleagues. I have a staff meeting in the morning and should be reachable after that.

I may leave the office early to catch up with home needs like laundry and food—but not too early, as a big portion of our house is being renovated and it’s a construction site for much of the day.
