Another busy week, Hopkins Inn and packing

IMG_20150725_190905So another crazy week. I really don't know when it will end.  It does seem to have gotten a tad better but there are still a lot of kinks to be worked out. Lots of small things that are causing problems. I honestly feel bad leaving on Wednesday, not knowing how things will go 

In more positive news I did spend the week training a new employee and things seem to be going ok. He is the younger brother of someone who also works there.  His sister started out in my department as one of my employees many years ago and was honestly one of my best people. Eventually we promoted her out of my department and she now runs our payroll along with HR and some accounting. So there's hope her brother can be an assett as well. :) Fingers crossed. :)

Mike will be at work while I am away as well. So hopefully he can keep an eye on things and help with some of the tasks that I usually cover. 

Saturday we had to work but had dinner reservations at the Hopkins Inn at Lake Waramaug. We usually try to go there every July around our American wedding anniversary (July 12) but it hadn't worked out yet this summer. So Saturday the weather worked out and we enjoyed a delicious dinner on their porch overlooking the lake.  

Today we slept in (we both needed it, just been so drained from all the work stuff), ran some errands and are now at 121 in Oxford for lunch. 

Eventually we will head back and I will start my packing for my Europe trip. I don't leave until Wednesday but I want to get some stuff arranged, update my music, find all my chargers and adapters etc. Also need to pack up some of the things I am bringing with me for people. Always so much to do. So I figured I would have more peace of mind starting tonight. That way if I do need to go out and get something I can always do that Monday or Tuesday. 

Mail Update: Received letters from/owe a reply to: Caroline/Scotland, Nina/WA and Lotte/Denmark.
