So today again went off without a hitch. We made progress, so that is good. And so far this trip is going off well, compared to the first one which I made out here to same location but on a different project, that one was a disaster. So I set my expectations very low for this trip, and I am happy that I could raise them.
I am disappointed though because I got stuck with a hotel that is being renovated so their fitness center is not open at all because well they are using the room for something else I guess. That puts a damper on my workouts, but it is Florida so yesterday I did a walk-run, unfortunately I cannot run every single day that I do that because well the whole knee thing, it puts a damper on those types of things unless I am on an elliptical machine. The other thing about this hotel that sucks, is it has ants I have spotted in the room, and then the microwave doesn’t work all that good. But I will get that replaced tomorrow and mention the damned bugs yet again.
Was supposed to go out to dinner with my son who was down here on a little vacation at the same time I am traveling here, but that didn’t happen so I didn’t get in a workout today, so that sucks too, on both counts. But all good, I will get to hang out with him after I get back home.
So other thing that sucks, nothing like finding out while you are on a work trip and you are a contractor that the company you work for lost the re-compete on the contract and that you won’t have a job in about a months’ time. Now I have already applied for said job with the new company. Not that I wanted to, but I did. I have worked for this company twice before, the first time was OK, the second time well it sucked. So hoping the third time is better. We will see. I have another option that is in the works, but it could be timely in how long it takes to make it happen.
So that is it for now, almost time for me to hit the sack.
