My MN Week

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.  :mrgreen:

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!

  1. Sounds like you had a great trip. I’m visiting my mom and siblings, and glad to have a vacation. Can’t wait for rt next year.
    Miss you.

    1. (((Ann))) I miss you too! I’m dying for RT next year! I hope you have a wonderful visit with your family. Did you make it to AAD?

  2. Hey, you driving down I-35 on your way back home? Maybe we could meet up for a hello somewhere. {{huggs}}

    1. Tambo, man, I wish I were driving! That’s exactly the way we’d normally travel. Since I’m alone this time, I flew up. 🙁 Maybe next time!

  3. Ah man, I so loved spending the evening with you! Even though it feels like we’ve never parted when we see each other, it would be do much better if we didn’t have to part in the first place. Your like a sister of the heart, my friend.

    PS there is NOTHING strange or weird about that salad combo! One of my top five salads for sure!

    1. Wanda, Ha, I’ve NEVER heard of putting wild rice on lettuce. But oh so good!!! Hugs, totally, I wish we didn’t have to part at all. You’re the sister of my heart too. I sooooo hope it’s not so long before I come back this time!

  4. Love that ‘lost half yourself’ comment 🙂

    Glad you had a great time. That salad sounds delicious. And friends you can pick up where you left off with are the bomb!
