Real Working Women
Well, I just got back from my first real business trip! I went to Las Vegas for a HR training thing, 3 days of INTENSE learning. My head hurts and is full of HR laws and procedures that I will most likely never use unless we move out of state. They are implementing a new designation just for us HR people out here in CA because we are so damn different!! Unfortunately, I have to know everything, even if it doesnt apply to my company, in order to take the national exam.
I didnt stay any where special, I didnt go out and I only used a $1 on the slots...and lost. I was, however, able to order room service, eat an entire order of creme bruele and take a 2 hour bath with no one banging on the door, every night. Eventhough that was great, I really missed home. I missed my baby, my hubby, my friends, and gasp, even my work! Its good to be back among normal people and not stuck in a room, with over a hundred people, all asking, "Does your company has a strategic plan for employee retention in place for the new year?"
Lord, I am so glad to be home!!
