Pass the tissues please…

I have a cold. Today is the first day in about two weeks that I can work from home for the whole day. I have to go into the office tonight since I am giving a training. Until 5Pm, I am working from my office, with my own daylight, my mom’s high school desk and my fur bearing colleagues. Oh, and let’s not forget the music and my nearby Nespresso machine! It doesn’t get much better than that.

There were people from the US and Western Europe here last week. Which meant we had days full of meetings, nights full with dinners and somewhere in the moments in between, the attempt to still do your regular job. I wasn’t getting alot of sleep either so Friday morning, I woke up with the crud that is going around. I spent the weekend only walking the dogs, reading on the couch and sleeping. While it didn’t stop the crud, I am hoping it will make it shorter in duration since I would really like to start liking the taste of coffee again. Right now, it is not a pleasure and I am drinking tea instead – not the same thing at all!

So far so good on driving into the heart of Rotterdam without getting a ticket. I keep waiting for one to drop through the mailslot but none yet! I am going to another concert next month, starring one of the musicians I saw at Cross Linx. However, this time I am taking the train. πŸ™‚

A week from Sunday, I leave for Lisbon. I have some training to go to. I really like that city so I am looking forward to seeing it again. And then early next month, I am heading to Seattle. I have some stuff to take care of so it will be a short trip – 5 days, including flying time. The boys will be glad to see me come back with a suitcase of tortillas – but that’s not the reason I am going.

Hmm, I seem to have lots of technical difficulties this morning. Nothing seems to want to start up properly – including me πŸ˜‰ If this keeps up, I will have to take a day off. Obviously, this machine is still working since I am posting so I guess that means I better make use of it!

  1. Ok so I guess I should have told you earlier that I had foot surgery on February 17th which meant a lot of time in bed, reading everything I could get my hands on while trying to heal. Maybe if I had told to earlier you would have posted a few more entries adding to my entertainment and recuperation.
    Sounds like you are busy as always – hope your feeling better soon. Take care

    1. Hi Joni,
      I would have worked day and night to churn out entries for you if I had only known – the Princess Package of course! I hope you are feeling better and are back to being on your feet πŸ™‚

      1. So sweet of you – if I should ever need to stuck in bed again for two weeks I will let you know in advance so you can be prepared for some heavy duty churning. Back on my feet again (plus one ugly and difficult to use medical boot) and finally get to drive again. Today will be my first day driving since February 16 – let’s hope I haven’t forgotten how.
        Thanks for all the entertainment – let me know if you have time for a cup of coffee while your in town. Would love for the three of us to get together. Be well πŸ€

      2. Hi Joni,
        I’ll send you a message via Viber when I get there tomorrow. I’d love to see you. I know Bex is in HI so I guess you and I will have to hold down the coffee fort πŸ˜‰ So remember to check your phone!
