Right now I’m in route to Tampa for a work conference that starts tonight through Tuesday. Yes, it’s Saturday and yes, it sucks. Not having any weekend at all is not my idea of a good time. What’s worse is that even though I’ll be in a relatively cool (figuratively, obviously Tampa is anything but cool in July) place, I’ll most likely be stuck in an over air conditioned convention center for 95% of the time.
So instead of dwelling on all that negativity, I’d rather talk about what has been good in the past day or so.
Spending our Thursday night here.
Ulysses jet-skiing and me reading my book on the boat.
Dinner at my favorite restaurant, Dish which I unfortunately just learned has been sold to different owners.
I had the pizza which was out of this world good.
And a rainy Friday night which was perfect for 2 episodes of Lost (more confusing than ever now!) and a mug cookie.
I’ll try to remember these things when I’m freezing cold inside of a windowless exhibit hall pretending to be interested in whatever conversation I’m having.
Although, one redeeming factor of this trip is that there is a sponsored 5K race for attendees on Bayshore Boulevard Tuesday morning. Awards are given to the top 2 women and men finishers. Considering the age of most attendees of this conference, it might be the only shot I ever get at winning a race so I’m definitely doing it!
See ya from Tampa.
Do you have to travel on weekends for work?
Do you get comp time if so?
