Travelling for work

In the past 4 months, I have travelled to Kelowna, Savannah, and Salt Lake twice for work. I feel like things are progressing very well with the new role. I am loving what I am doing and I am really learning so very much.

I went to Kelowna first, administering training on some software that we are using. We use a Record Management Software and I was charged with getting the Kelowna team online. It was a great 2.5 days in Kelowna where it was sunny, warm and filled with some visiting with the team. A quick trip which I enjoyed greatly.

The next trip was to Savannah, Georgia. Most of which was recorded on this blog. I loved the trip to Savannah, and even though I didn't get to do a lot on my own, it was amazing to be there and see some of the history.

Salt Lake, I think I will be going to a number of times. The whole team that I work with, work down there so bringing me in is much easier than for them to all come up here. I haven't had a lot of time to tour Salt Lake but what I have seen is that it is square, flat, and pretty. It has a distinctive "Vanilla" feel to it which is interesting because I have never had a feel like this from a city before. I plan on seeing more the next time I am down there to be able to know the city better.

I hope to do more travelling soon, but with this job, I never know. There were smatterings of talkings about Phoenix and California, but who knows! :)

Happy New Year and Welcome 2012

Here we are again, looking into the sparkling promise of a New Year. Full of fresh ideas, goals and dreams in hopes that this year will be a wonderful year... fingers crossed right?

So, here just slightly over the threshold of a shiny New Year, I make resolutions...

1. To do the Half Ironman in Sylvan Lake (July 22)
2. To cook a new dish at least once a month
3. Blog at least 2 times a month
4. To volunteer at least once a month
5. Call or talk to Jen (my BFF) at least once every 2 weeks... I sure do miss her.

Some of them not very exciting, some of them already in the works, some of them may not even happen... but for me, looking into a brand New Year without goals, objectives, a direction to go in, well, that's asking for trouble friends because I would try and do it all!

Happy New Year to all of you and I hope the ideas, dreams and goals that you have set for 2012 are all achieved (and well before Christmas!) :)
