Not shown: We got back around lunch time, we unpacked at the store, and then I was dropped off at home. I was asleep on the couch by 6pm and put in bed by 8. I did not move at all until 7:30 the next morning, because I had to pee.
That's the shoe store I used to manage. I was called in to show a maintenance crew where the lights were, how to open the doors, and where to find all of the fancy things like the breaker box. The notes I had hung up everywhere in the back room were still there and all I could think was, "Whoever rents this place next is gonna think I was a massive bitch. I mean...they're not wrong."
Yes. I gave Darth Vader a bubble bath.
Today's positive thought: I made it home from Denver and I accidentally got myself promoted.
I've just read this back for the first time and damn, you can tell I was dead tired because I typed like a dumbass.
Update: My Alabama people say it like I do. But my Texan and Arizonan people do not.
I almost fucking died. Twice. I just wanted McDonalds.
I also showered and the water pressure was so hard, it knocked me out of the tub.
Positive thought of the day: If I'm being completely honest, I did NOT want to come on this trip. I didn't want to travel away from Boyfriend or the hamsters or be in a strange place with people I only know from work or be in a car for double-digit hours...
But I'm so glad I came. I saw a falling star so close, while at the boarder of New Mexico, that we could see the flames trial behind. We saw the sunrise as we went over the Rockys and it was incredible. I got to see snow and mountains in real life, the ones you only see in pictures. I've made quite a few good connections for work and put myself out there to be a face of the company (and they're expecting 20,000 this weekend, which is terrifying for an introvert like myself) which I have never done before.
Over all.... 9/10. Would do again. The -1 is because the Beer Boys live here and the schedule is so tight, I can't buy them a beer before I go back home. See ya next time, guys?
