My Private Jet

Today was a most excellent day. It started out with me in a panic because I couldn't find my camera, and I thought I was behind, and the kids were both breaking down into fits! My bosses were coming to visit, to train, and check up on me out here. I was really nervous about the whole thing. I thought surely they were going to tell me that I haven't done jack shit since I got here, strip me of my star floors gel pens, and send me on my unemployed way.

That was not the case at all. We visited an amazing installer that yours truly was responsible for finding, and then I received some really great tips, objectives, and strategies that will help me grow the business.

Then the best part came! I got to get my picture taken with the private jet! The only reason I got to go near the plane was so they could give me some ginormo magnets with the company logo to put on my car (yuck) and some more goodies like tiny flashlights and calculators to hand out to customers (that my kids will find, play with, and I will be digging out from behind the sofa). Since I was already standing next to a cool private plane, I awkwardly asked my boss to take a pic with his iphone and email it to me (and make sure to copy C25Karen). He's not much of a tech guru so it took him some time to figure out the camera. I had to hold my pose for, I swear, more than an entire minute before he snapped the picture. I just stood there, one elbow on the wing, with my thumbs in the air for 45 min to an hour.
Can you tell I see TONS of private planes, like, all the time?
After I unboard my jet, I'll be off to the Rolling P-Stone for my Thursday meet up! A great way to end the day!
