It's time for another Virtual Coffee Tuesday. I have been looking forward to doing the weekly Tuesday post since I had to miss a couple weeks because I was traveling for work. If we were meeting for coffee in person, I would tell you about my travels the past two weeks. Since this is Virtual Coffee, sit down with a warm mug of coffee, tea, or whatever you enjoy sipping in the evening, and read about my travels.
My two weeks of traveling was fun, refreshing, long, exhausting, and frustrating. My trip started with missing my first flight. This was totally my fault because I did not arrive at the tiny airport, with ONE terminal, an hour ahead of time. For the record, I arrived 30 minutes ahead of my flight and EVERYONE was still sitting in the lobby and had not even gone through security! Even though I was
I was really looking forward to getting to KS Friday afternoon to hang out with my dad that afternoon. On Saturday we had plans to go to the farmers market and can tomatoes. We ended up not doing much that weekend since I was exhausted from my travels.
On Monday I headed to CO with my supervisor to visit the three offices in CO. The week long trips to CO are always crazy busy and exhausting. We work non-stop and usually only take a break for lunch and dinner. This time was no exception, as we worked most evenings till 9:30 or 10!
The weekend after CO I went back to my parents house to can tomatoes, make salsa, visit the farmers market, and just relax. It was a great weekend to catch up with them and enjoy being at my 2nd "home."
Last week I was in the KS office working with two new employees. It was a week of frustrations for me which I wont get into here. The short story is I am not doing what I love or have a passion for, so the frustrations I experience at work are just not worth it! The week in KS really helped me to start thinking about what I really want to do--be my own boss. I've always wanted to have a coffee shop and bakery but without having the resources I need to open one I have to put that on the back burner for now. Anyone now of any investors that want to put there money in coffee??? Just kiddin' (kind of)! While that dream simmers on the back burner, I am researching things to get my Etsy store up and running. I have MANY ideas for the store and even ideas outside of Etsy, it is just being brave and doing it! I will talk more about those ideas in the following weeks.
Fortunately my flight home was uneventful and it was WONDERFUL to be home again. Two weeks away from home, living out of a suitcase and in hotel rooms, is a long time!
What have you been doing the past few weeks? I would love to hear from you. What dreams do you have? What one thing have you always wanted to do but never actually been brave enough to do?
