For the first time in a long time, I am going out of town... on business. I'll be sleeping in a hotel because the function lasts two days. The whole thing is happening in some really fancy hotel in Rhode Island. I can't remember when the last time I went out of town on business was. I really can't. I'm not even sure if I ever really have. I can remember going on vacation to places and then adding a business venture somewhere in there. But never solely for business mainly.
I'll be participating in discussing the future & direction of my company in terms of their employees. We attend interactive groups where we share how we feel about the current status of the company, where we want it to go, how we want it to improve, etc. I was invited to this function because I won the Best Merchandiser Award at my store. Pretty nifty for someone who basically is paid to be colorful. Wink, wink. My partner rolls his eyes when he hears of my company's effort to make working conditions for employees more comfortable. He thinks we're cultish. Maybe we are BUT I do get paid well, with full-benefits, and a 20% discount on groceries. Not sure if I ever mentioned the discount.
Should be exciting. I am concerned about one thing though. What am I going to wear? Later.
