Busy Weekend

Pixlr (1)And it's Monday again. Not ready for this week to be honest. I am covering for a co-worker who is on vacation which is always a bit tricky and also am mentoring a new employee remotely out of our Houston office. The mentoring is a rather new development and is going to be a bit of a "trial and error" situation until we can figure out the best way to train remotely. I am able to share my screen which is helpful. And there are also Skype training sessions set up for the new employees so all that's helpful. It will all work out in the long run. Just may be a bit of a "winging it" situation until we get there. 

The weekend was fun even if the weather wasn't as great as they had originally forecasted. Saturday we went to the Connecticut Garlic & Harvest Festival which was a lot of fun. The weather was rather dreary and even a bit drizzly and slightly chilly but not too terrible. We had fun walking around and since we went relatively early the crowds weren't too bad yet. We bought some olive oil, ciabatta bread (with green olives + red peppers) and a spicy red pepper cheese spread. Lots and lots of booths with various dips, cheeses, oils, jams, jellies, honey and everything in between. You were able to taste most of it as well so that's always fun. Anyway a fun time. 

Sunday we went into NYC for a walking tour. The Greenwich Village Rock Tour to be exact, focused on the musical history of the area. It was one of Mike's Christmas or birthday gifts I got him last year and we finally got around to scheduling it. We had done a similar tour before, punk music in the East Village, and that was really fun as well. So we spent a little over 2 hours walking around the Village. Luckily the weather was relatively decent. Rather humid but otherwise not too bad. No rain at least. When we were done we stopped at the Penny Farthing for brunch. Always a good spot. Eventually made our way home and caught up on some recorded TV. 

And well here we are and it's Monday again. Let's see, anything else I missed from last week? Oh yeah, Wednesday I went for my wisdom teeth consult. They gave me the cost of the procedure (I need to get all 4 wisdom teeth out), what it would cost out of pocket. Next step will be to figure out exactly how much insurance will cover. Well, we will see I suppose. I now need to actually call and make an appointment so that will need to happen sooner rather than later so I don't procrastinate for too long. I am figuring some time in January. Well, we shall see.
