What a busy day! After work I headed to TJs to pick up my favorite treat…LARABARS! I am going to a fun city next week for work, and I want to be sure to have plenty of healthy snacks on hand. So, I am packing nuts, Larabars, etc.
I’m not going to tell you where I am going…yet! Let’s see if y’all can guess the destination. I know there are hundreds of cities in the US, so I’ll narrow down the choices for you.
A. New York City
B. Washington DC
A, B, C, and D are all super fun cities, but only one is correct. Take a guess and let’s see if you are correct. I will post the answer on Saturday evening once I arrive in [enter city name here]! And if you are a friend or family member who already knows where I am headed, please don’t guess! It’s not fair!
So, I really wish there were more hours in the day. For someone who works 9 hours a day, comes home and works out, makes and eats dinner, watches TV, BLOGS :), and wants to read a book before bed, there are just not enough hours in the day! Who’s with me!?
As you can probably tell, my day today was packed. After TJs I headed to Lovin Spoonfuls for dinner with my co-workers! They wanted to have a farewell dinner for me at my favorite Tucson restaurant! It was lots of fun! I tried something new this time, but unfortunately I forgot my camera at home, so no pictures…sorry! I ordered the Route 66 Burger, which was a “cheeseburger” with “bacon.” The quotes mean that everything was soy. In case you haven’t read my earlier posts, Lovin Spoonfuls is a great vegan restaurant that I frequent often! Oh, I also had a vegan chocolate chip cookie! YUM! After dinner, I headed to Target to pick up a few things. Then I came home, started laundry, and started packing. Bleh! It’s funny how when you have LOTS to do, all you want to do is park your butt on the couch!
Before I peace out for the night, I wanted to share a couple of more things with y’all. First, check out the super cute wireless mouse my manager got me…it’s pink!
There’s actually a pretty funny back story to this gift. One day, I asked my manager if he had an extra thumb drive I could borrow. He came by my desk to drop off the drive and also had another small box in his hand. He gave me the box, and I got super excited because I thought it was a wireless mouse. I think I even said, “Wow! How did you know I needed one of these?” Well, the “mouse” ended up being something else, and he could tell from my face once I realized that it wasn’t what I thought it was, that I was a little disappointed because I said “Ohhh, thanks.”. Haha! So, he got me this mouse because he knew “it was what I REALLY wanted!”
The other thing I wanted to share today was a book I am reading called “Helping – How to Offer, Give, and Receive Help” by Edgar H. Schein.
It sounds (and looks) kind of boring, but it’s actually really interesting! It’s kind of text book”y” with examples and stories mixed in, but I enjoy those types of book…what can I say, I miss school. Nerd alert! Anyways, I am half way through the second chapter, and I can’t wait to read more. The author addresses three different kinds of helping situations – formal, semi-formal, and informal. And he attacks the topic from a cultural and sociological viewpoint versus a personality and character one. I will be sure to highlight some of the main points when I am done, so you have something to look forward to! I think the world can use better helpers!
Next time I’m on here, you’ll find out where I’ll be blogging from for the next week! 🙂
