I can’t believe my week is almost over already. I’ve been in the home office this past week, training for two days and then visiting all my coworkers, going to meetings (instead of just the voice on the phone), and generally having a blast.
Tuesday night, I got to meet my friend’s son for the first time and see her little girl I hadn’t seen since she was a baby. Last night my area had a happy hour after work. The book that shall not be named (50S) was a hot topic, and all the guys had to quiz me about it after the ladies were gone. Then I hooked up with Barbara Longley for some incredible Thai food and great biz talk.
But tonight… Ah. The BEST time. I meet up with my dear friend Wanda (you’ve seen me dedicate several books to her!) for a long, leisurely dinner. I ate a delicious, healthy salad with wild rice, cranberries, almonds, and chicken. A weird (to my MO sensibilities) mix, but it was so yummy. Then we decided to take a walk.
We walked. And walked. And talked books. And walked. She thinks we probably walked a good three miles!
A year ago, I wouldn’t have been able to make it that far.
There are some people that it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen them, you can talk and laugh just like you saw them yesterday. That’s how it is with Wanda. I’m so blessed to have you as my friend! Plus I got some great activity points for my team’s challenge.
Now I’m back at the hotel packing up and nearly in tears because I’ll miss everyone so much.
The funniest comment this week when a friend/coworker saw me for the first time: “DUDE, you’ve lost half yourself!” Ha, not quite, but I nearly will by the time I hit goal!
