This was my job today. We got an umbrella to hide from the sun and spent our time bouncing between our chairs, the wave pool, and the lazy river. I needed some relaxation time move than I realized.
Clint wanted to do a quick getaway before school starts, so we’re in Vegas for the weekend. I’ve been sitting here for a couple hours since we arrived, and I don’t think I’m going to move. The view is great, the company is even better, and I don’t have a damn place in the world I have to be right now.
After two days out of the office, I spent today in kick-off meetings. Like, ALL day. This morning my VP put this slide up on the screen and encouraged us to do what we need in order to try to maintain balance in our life. It’s good in theory, but laughable in reality (given, for example, that Sat.-Tues. I worked more than 40 hours).
Day two of the retreat is done and I can finally get some rest. It was a TON of work to put together, and it didn’t all go quite like I hoped. BUT, in general, I’m pleased with the progress we made and think we’re in a good place for getting ready to start the school year. This is my full team at Zion. They make me crazy some days, but they’re full of heart and great at what they do–and I wouldn’t trade them even on the bad days. 🙂
