Miss E MIA

I've been MIA for the past week and a half and I apologize for that, dear friends.  The reason why is quite exciting though!

No, no babies for our household...c'mon folks, that's not the ONLY exciting thing that can happen...*ahem* to certain family members who will remain unnamed :) 

Ok, now where was I?

Oh yes, so my manager and my director were both out of town last week.  So who was left to fill in?  Well, me, of course!  

Takeaways from the experience:

  • It was a challenging, fun, fast week.  Time flies when you're putting out fires having fun.
  • I love my manager even more after experiencing firsthand what she handles in a given day.
  • There is a reason management is paid more.  Enough said.
  • I'm pretty good at what I do.

Needless to say, I came home late each night and with barely enough energy in me to eat dinner and flop into bed.  

Oh, and did I mention I started a half marathon training schedule last week as well?  Never-you-mind the fact that it lasted through the weekend and now I haven't been back out since.  I'm easing my way into this thing, people.  One toe at a time.

Good for you with the mgmt experience you got! I'm sure you did fabulous. I can only imagine how exhausting it was - mentally and physically!

Good Luck with the training. It never lasted for me. I'm not a runner and I've had to accept that after several failed attemps ;)

Good for you for filling in for the manager/director!

Keep up the training! It will pay off in the end!

That's awesome that you've realized you're good at what you do! Sounds like you have a good situation between that and your manager.

As for the half-marathon, I'm impressed! I'll cheer you on from my virtual sidelines, my e-champagne flute raised.
