It is so dry and so hot here right now. My water smells and tastes like dirt and is literally undrinkable. I can’t even make coffee with it. Yuck. I just went outside to get the mail and I swear, it must be close to 100 degrees still! The news cut-in just confirmed it’s 97 degrees out. Ugh.
I went out for a smoke break at work this afternoon and didn’t take two puffs before I had to go back in. The heat is hurting my lungs. It’s completely miserable.
I found out why my boss wanted me to keep the first week of November blocked off on my calendar. Turns out he is sending me to Orlando for 4 days for a learning conference, with topics ranging from developing online content to LMS systems to global learning and a lot more. He’s going, too, so as soon as the publish the schedule of sessions, we’ll have to figure out who is going to what and that sort of thing. I’m kind of excited…I’ve never had to travel out of state for work before.
Since this will be after the big 8.9 upgrade, I may tack some travel days on before or after the conference for a little R&R while I’m there. Not sure how exciting DisneyWorld will be by myself, but I’m willing to find out for the right price. I need to figure that out soon because I have to get with my other boss to book travel and hotel. Apparently the hotel tends to fill up fast for this thing. And I have no idea how my company handles this type of expense. Hopefully it’s not a reimbursement thing…surely not!
My parents are on an Alaskan cruise this week. I’m still in shock that they actually did it, along with my mom’s brother, sister, and their spouses. I hope they are having a blast and taking lots of pictures!
