Today was my kind of Sunday…we slept-in, came home from the chalet to get some washing done, the groceries and finished un packing the last few boxes. We even had time to fit in a nice 4km run under the hot sun. With the moving and weekends at the chalet I haven’t prioritized running too much so it felt good to be out there running again .
After the moving rush of the last few weeks we decided we needed some time away. And so, Seb booked a hotel in Old Orchard. He did it quickly and didn’t realize that the place he booked was in such bad shape. This morning I finally got around to looking at pictures of the rooms…oh boy!!! I couldn’t imagine us staying there even one night. The toilet bowl in some rooms was right there in the bedroom with the bed…no bathroom door, just a toilet bowl in the middle of the room.
$300 was already charged to the credit card and we weren’t sure we could get our money back. Very grateful that after 2 quick phone calls we were able to cancel everything without charge.
A bit of internet research later we decided to go a little further South to Atlantic City and made another reservation there. Relieved that we will have a nice place to stay during our vacation.
It’s always great to know that people appreciate the work that you do. Over the last few weeks I feel like things are really flowing well at work. It’s crazy busy at work (with my colleagues getting new jobs and vacation time I’m pretty much on my own), but I’ve been mostly delivering good work. It feels good when one of your internal clients writes you a great feedback email and sends it directly to your VP.
