Tomorrow is the last day of my week and very much appreciated especially this week as I have spent the last 12 days being the boss. I work downtown Chicago three days a week and live in NWI which is pretty far south if you ask me! (I work across the street from this building>>)
Most days I don't mind the almost 2 hour commute having my alone time on the train and in my car. The last two weeks I have been doing it 5 days which I admit would burn me out if I had to do it on a regular basis. My boss just returned from a trip with her husband in Israel. It was great with her being gone but also bittersweet having to do her job all the while, dealing with European barge owners and trying to help people choose which cruise to take. It's not an easy job when dealing with France - I have only been to Ireland and Germany (with inclusion of Luxembourg and the southern tip of France) and would never claim to be an expert. That's her job! Thankful to be back to my regular old office manager role - and always have a new appreciation for what she does when having to fill her shoes. They are HUGE!
