Happy Friday to one and all!!!
I'm writing this blog entry from a different office than usual, as it is Friday, and that's my 'remote meeting' day. I'm part of the Communication Committee here at work, and every Friday we meet at 10am in one of the other buildings (where all the big wigs are).
Since I have back to back meetings from 9 to 10 and then 10 to 11, it makes more sense for me to start my day in the 'other' building and head to my normal office after the 10 o'clock meeting.
Now that you know that completely USELESS piece of information, I'll move on.
Thanks again for all your positive and insightful comments about my job situation. It's nice to hear from people who have 'been there' and yes, I'll say it - are a bit more 'seasoned' than myself, so they clearly know what they're talking about. It's a little sad to see that my company is heading in the typical, awful, un-loving, direction that so many others are - but I'm not at all surprised.
Anyway - enough work talk!!!
I'm looking forward to my Orlando trip next week, but I'm still a lil' sad that Jim isn't coming with me. It's going to be really weird traveling alone (I never have) so I'm planning on reading a lot and keeping myself entertained. I just hope the person next to me on the plane doesn't mind me gripping their leg in terror during take-off. Jim never does. :-)
Once Thursday night rolls around, and my friends start arriving, I'm sure I'll be fine, but all the logistical crap (getting to the hotel, checking in, blah, blah, blah...) will be weird for me to be doing alone.
I'm sure most of you can't even remotely relate, but I've never travelled for work, so the entire concept is very foreign to me.
So, back off. ;-)
In other travelling news, Jim surprised me last night with an early birthday present!!! He informed me that we're heading to Ft. Myers for a week in March!!!
We're going to be staying with my parents while we're there and will be seeing two Red Sox Spring Training games. My dad works for the Red Sox at City of Palms Park, so I'm hoping we get some 'special treatment' while we're there. We've been there to visit before, but it was at Thanksgiving a couple of years ago, so even though we got a tour of the park, we never got to see a game. I'm VERY excited to go.....I'm sure we'll have a great time.
The fact that we're staying with my parents is great, because we not only get to visit with them, but save a TON of money!!!
OK peeps...I'm getting back to work now. I hope you all have a super Friday, and a great weekend!!!!
