Almost Vacation Time!

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Just have to get through a few more hours of work and then I will be on leave until Wednesday! Heading to Florida tomorrow morning! My flight leaves at 6am to Denver, and then around 7:30 I head to Orlando! I checked in online this morning and printed my boarding passes. I am ready! I am mostly packed, but I also made a list this morning of everything I could possible think of needing so that I dont forget anything! After work today, I will eat a quick dinner, pack up and take Buffy to boarding, go to my dance class, and then come home and finish all of my packing and hopefully get some sleep! Since my flight is at 6am, I am planning to wake up at 3am so that I can eat breakfast, double check my packing one more time, do a quick cleaning of my house, and make it to the airport with time to check my bag. I feel like once I leave work today everything is going to be a huge rush! But I am so, so ready!

Yesterday both of my meetings ended up getting cancelled, so I was able to get a bunch of work done today, so that I only have a few things to follow-up on today. I left a bit early to go to the gym and the parking lot was completely full - not one parking space available. This is my constant big complaint about the base gym. If you go towards the end of the work today, it is always full. Not being able to get a parking space is frustrating to me, and its a clear reflection that the gym will be packed to the brim, and is the reason why I keep contemplating getting a private gym membership... Anyway, I left base with the intention of running some errands and then coming back later, but once I ran my errands off base I realized I left my ID card in my office, and didnt want to deal with the hassle of getting a pass to get back on base. Plus, my legs were incredibly sore from tap class the night before - even my glutes were sore from tapping! So I took a rest day, and stretched. I think that was the better decision. I also made my 2nd attempt at tutu making and it was also unsuccessful. And now my craft room is covered in pink glitter from the glitter tulle. I need to vaccuum that tonight! I think I will just see if I can find a tutu or skirt at the expo this weekend instead.

This morning I had my phone meeting with my boss to get my work feedback. Since I've been doing this job full time for 8 months now, it was probably time get some feedback. I was nervous, but not really sure why - I am a people pleaser so I really just wanted to hear good things. But I did. Most of my feedback was "clearly exceeds" or "outstanding". She discussed ways I get stand out among my peers, etc. She asked me what I was interested in doing for my next assignment, and I told her I was thinking about separating. She was definitely not so happy to hear that and said she thought I had a great future in the Air Force and told me to just think about it, and think about other assignments that I hadnt really considered and to talk to her before I make my final decision. *sigh* Well, I guess it's nice to know that your boss thinks highly of you, though.

Ahhh Cant Wait For Tomorrow!!!
