+ As you might recall, I was in the desert for work for 7 days (and I got to play with drones. Yay!). Including the 2 days in the office, before I left for my field trip, I worked 9 days straight and I accumulated 32 hours of overtime. Needless to say, we put in some really, really long days. I am not sure if you’re interested to know what a field trip at my job entails, but let me know in the comments and maybe I’ll blog about it sometime.
+ I’ll be off for the next few days (thank goodness, I need it!) before going on my next field trip on Sunday.
+ I had no coffee for the 7 days I was in the field (except for one iced coffee, I remember now). How I survived the week without coffee, I don’t know, but the hotel coffee was terrible and there was no easy access to the only coffee shop close by (Starbucks) because we worked such long days, so I went without it. The first cup of coffee back home yesterday was pure heaven in a cup.
+ I completed the 20-day fitness challenge last weekend. I wasn’t sure if I was able to finish successfully as the last days of the challenge happened to coincide with my field trip, but I made use of the hotel gym a couple of times and my fieldwork involved some hiking, so I was at the very least able to get my steps in. I am going to recap my experience in a different blog post, but for now, I’d like to say: it was a really fun and motivating experience! Thanks again to my friend Susi for inviting me to the challenge.
+ The Red Sox clinched the AL East playoff berth against the Yankees as the best team in the history of the franchise. Yes, yes, yes, amazing! There are a few more games left, but it’s been a really fantastic season for our team! Now on to the World Series!
