Have you guys ever had "one of those days" and needed to regroup to figure out the reason why...?
Today was one of those days. Our work week is Sunday - Thursday so today was the first day of a short week. For the most part it was OK, but there are a few variables that just shouldn't be. They are easy fixes from my perspective but _________________________ (insert 1000 reasons why it hasn't been corrected).
Anyway, I left work with a mean side-eye and school girl eye roll.
On my short drive home, I asked "Why am I here again?"
In Atlanta, I had a GREAT life and pretty much had everything I wanted. There were a few needed changes in the way of personal and professional experiences...which is what led me here....personal and professional change.
One of the things that this "experience" gives me is opportunity travel. Travel is the main reason that I embarked upon this "experience". Next month, I am going to Phuket, Thailand. With everything being in such close proximity, travel is relatively inexpensive and easy.
Before returning to the States, (Atlanta, then Little Rock, then DC), I am making a stop in Rome.
I am thoroughly excited about my trip to Rome. I will be there four days and the entire trip was less than $1,000. Yes to the ma'am. What a bargain! I will be sure to post lots of photos.
On the way back to Abu Dhabi, I am meeting a friend in Paris for New Years. Yep, yet another one of those "experiences" that makes some of the oddities here OK.
So, that was my mini vent for today. Thanks for listening and if any of you have traveled to Rome, let me know what I should see.
Until next time....
