I’ve been traveling the last couple of weeks for work, and I think lack of sleep and recycled air have done me in. So now I’m home and suffering with a sinus infection. My left cheek and head are pulsating with pain. Good news is that I dragged my achy body to the doc’s yesterday and now have antibiotics to do some major bacteria ass kicking.
Even better news is that the sinus infection didn’t start until I got home. I really would have been upset had it all started when I was in HAWAII. Yes, Hawaii. I know, it’s rough. I’ve got to earn money somehow though, right? Actually it’s usually pretty lonely when I travel (I prefer traveling with a buddy), but the people in Hawaii were so warm and welcoming. I was lucky enough to extend my trip by a day, so I lounged in the sun and stared at the ocean. I don’t think that view would ever get old. As I was training my class, I had a stellar view and am very impressed that I was able to stay focused and not suddenly yell, “I can’t take it anymore, the beach is right there!”
Speaking of the training class, on the first break one of the participants asked me where in Utah I live. He thought I looked really familiar, and then we realized we were in the same high school graduating class! How random is that? And how unfair is it that he lives in Kauai?!
Of course I was sad to leave such a beautiful place, but I definitely prefer being home with my family. Plus, figuring out how to get in and out of airport bathrooms with luggage gets old fast. Can someone please help airports redesign their bathroom stalls? The following is a list of airport bathroom criteria:
1) The stall door must open outwards (try getting a suitcase in and out when it swings inward)
2) The stall must be large enough to accommodate 1 adult and up to 3 bags
3) Hooks must always be on doors for purses and laptop bags (no one wants to consider having to place their bag on the nasty floor)
There’s probably more, but I’ll stop. Oh and for any of you traveling to Hawaii in the near future, WEAR SUNBLOCK! I saw so many lobster-colored people and I wanted to yell, “Get the eff out of the sun!” I like having color as much as the next person, but I prefer it to be closer to brown than bright pink. Just sayin’.
Here is the view from my hotel room balcony. Ahhhh.
