This week I am traveling for work. I am participating in an excellent training program that is keeping me very, very busy from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm every day. A new saleswoman that I hired in June also came down here with me. We have a nice 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite with a shared living room, dining room and kitchen. The best feature – our fireplace!
After class every night all 15 of us at training go down to the hotel lobby where they have a “social.” The hotel provides dinner, buffet-style, and an open bar with free beer and wine. The wine is really crappy, but after a few beers it doesn’t really matter. Last night we drained the keg dry in less than an hour. Tonight they said that they are prepared for us. 🙂
Although I will probably not post for the rest of the week, I wanted to assure you that it is because I’m having too much fun. It is freeing to enjoy myself, take some “me” time, and sing duets in the hotel lobby. If that last comment got you confused, let me explain. There are some incredibly interesting people here with me. One particular man in his 60’s was a professional bull rider, a champion pool player, and is a fellow country-music singer. His repertoire includes songs from much older artists than I am familiar with (from back before I was even born); however, he has a great voice and we have found a few songs we both know.
So the rest of this week I will be learning lots, growing in my career, and building relationships with other people in this industry. I’ve already gotten one job offer. I’m not looking to move right now, but one day I will. It’s never too early to start building towards your future. I know that mine will be bright no matter what happens in my marriage. I hope it will be bright for my husband, too. I also hope our growth brings us together, not apart. That ball is in his court right now.
