Busily Booted and Loved

I am working very hard at my meetings in California. I am presenting, organizing, and am meeting non-stop. I love what I do, but man — I’m busy! Begins with breakfast meetings, then meeting-meetings, then lunch meetings, then meeting over dinner.

What boots am I wearing for all of these meetings?

While I brought two pairs of dressy cowboy boots, I am finding that my feet are desiring more comfort. I am standing quite a bit all day long, and walking a LOT between the location of these simultaneous meetings both within the building where the meetings take place and back and forth to and from the hotel.

I have been doing daily walks while wearing my Chippewa hikers. Because those boots are so comfortable, I have kept them on my feet with dress clothes that I wear for work. No one has said a word.

But I learned something else, too. I made a remark that “flip-flops are not permitted” in the restaurant where we had a group dinner on Tuesday night. So what did some of my colleagues do? They purposefully wore those ugly things. Ugggh!

After a long, long day, I returned to my room and found this — Roomflowersblog…with a note from the spouse, “thanks for preparing all those meals for me before you left for your trip. Love, spouse.”

Aw shucks. Nice to be loved. I sure miss him!

Life is short: enjoy what you do, but cherish the love back home.

One thought on “Busily Booted and Loved

  1. That was sweet that your spouse brought you flowers and sent them to you all the way to California. Oh, and those flip-flops that your colleagues were wearing, “Of course they were going to wear them, it’s summetime”. But anyway, like myself, I’m sure that you pretty much ask yourself, “How do I manage to survive the summer months with people wearing those ugly looking, and they are UGLY!!!” For the life of me, I don’t understand why people love wearing Flip-Flops. I mean, they’re look ugly and they make the most annoying and irritating sound. Well, at least, I still have my earplugs.
