Now you see why we’re looking to fly south? This type of winter is for the …. heck, this type of winter ain’t for anyone.
While most of the businesses in the area are closing down due to the ice storm and lettting their employees stay home, I am doing the opposite. I spent most of the day yesterday, calling employees IN, telling them to plan to spend the weekend here so that I know our departments are covered. Here. At the hotel. Where I’m spending my weekend too.
I love my job, but I hate staying in the hotel where I work. I’m uncomfortable letting employees and guests see me in unprofessional attire, and I especially don’t like working out in front of them. I got up way early, before most of them started, to get in a quick workout and then stealthily snuck back to my room. I managed to avoid all but one employee and one guest, neither of whom were awake enough to know I was me.
But now it’s 7:30am and I’m ready for a nap.
Picking out my room last night was difficult too. We have too many frequent guests who like certain rooms, and I didn’t feel comfortable sleeping in any of “their” beds. I finally decided on a room where I can go out my back door and be right at the fitness center. It’s at the back of the hotel, pretty isolated. And I don’t know any of the guests who’ve slept here in the past.
I can make this work for the weekend, but my desire to move to Florida has increased ten-fold. I gotta make this dream a reality soon. I just gotta.
