During those two days of work, I discovered that my team moved areas again. It took me a good five minutes to find my desk. But, I love the people that I sit next to. I laughed entirely too much. Thursday ended with my winning the "Shining Star Award" at work. I was surprised and shocked. It was unexpected and I appreciate it. It makes me feel like I am actually on course at work.
Plus... I got a balloon...
OH and I got a cool little thing in the mail from someone I adore... She is so sweet!
Friday November 21
Why is it so hard for me to meet people? Social anxiety at it's worst.
We woke up super late and got ready to head out to the Grand Canyon. I am shocked and embarrassed that I went on this trip and did not take a single picture. I just enjoyed the beauty.
Dreamy took me to a bagel shop and we ate the bagels during the drive up.
Guys, the Grand Canyon was BEAUTIFUL. I was shocked that something that big could be real. I was in awe and had a hard time moving. I just wanted to stand and stare for hours. When Dreamy asked if I wanted to do the trail, there was no way I was going to say no. So we headed down. We kept going lower and lower. I kept warning him that going down into the canyon was easy, but we would need luck to get me to climb up out. And sure enough, when we started to come back up I was exhausted and having the hardest time. I was so embarrassed. He was hardly breaking a sweat and I was breathing so hard and dying.
After our hike and a last minute view of the canyon we made our way back to Flagstaff. I was STARVING and the hunger was affecting me. I passed out in the car and did not have the energy to go shooting with Dreamy and his friend. So, while he was shooting, I watched the fun and slept in the car.
Let's be honest, if I do not eat, I am GRUMPY. I definitely was a moody pants. So, we changed pretty quickly and headed out for dinner with Dreamy's friend. Dinner was great. I laughed so much and ate a ton.
Sunday November 23
We slept in. To the point where it was lunch time when we left the hotel and checked out. So, we had barbecue for lunch. We played games at the table while we ate. Dreamy then surprised me by taking me to a reindeer farm. We got to see all kinds of animals and we even got to feed the reindeer. It was amazing!
Again, I cannot believe I failed to take pictures on this trip. I started to regret it when we headed back to Phoenix. I was so sad on the drive back. I didn't want to come back.
The only thing that made me feel better was knowing that I had Monday and Tuesday off.
Yup. Two more random days off.
