I have been working nearly non-stop since my return and have accomplished nearly all of the things I returned to do. I finalized the annual operating budget, prepared for and held our monthly board meeting, finished numerous reports and reconciled all of our financial accounts. The board did my yearly review and I received a glowing report and a substantial raise.
My co-worker and I left at 8 am this morning to drive 240 miles to a media training session in Bozeman, Montana. Last night's board meeting lasted until after midnight, so we were pretty tired on the drive, but perked up after numerous
cups carafes of coffee. Today's session lasted from noon until 6 and then we went to Borders where I bought my cousin's birthday presents and several books, including Tuesdays with Morrie, which was recommended to me by a fellow blogger.
Afterward, we returned to the motel room to relax. The photo (below) was taken from the balcony.
It feels good to unwind, if just for a little while.
