We are gearing up for vacation next week though. What is special about this particular vacation is that A). it was totally unexpected and B). Andrew was finally recognized for all of the hard work he has done over the past year.
Just before my trip to Ireland with Sue, Andrew had his yearly evaluation. He called me afterward sounding gloomy. I asked how it went.
“Well, they are sending us back across the ocean.”
Dead silence from my end as I had the thought of packing up everything – again, finding a new home – again, leaving new found friends behind – again. Just when things were starting to feel normal…
“What?!?” I finally stammered out.
“They are sending us to the Bahamas for a week, as a thank you for helping the top sales team.”
Apparently every year his company sends its top sales team from each region, and their families, somewhere for a week. This year they decided to include the service person that helped each team the most – that was Andrew.
So after a very tough year for him – flying all over creation, working until two in the morning repeatedly, and dealing with everything they’ve thrown at him – he finally gets a break for himself.
We are going here.
Before you hate us too much … here is the forecasted weather.
As my Dad so nicely put it – “Well … it won’t be raining in the bar.”
