It seems every time I get close to getting caught up on submitting my daily photo submissions, some other thing happens... This time around, a very fabulous trip to Mexico ended on a bit of a sour note... But more on that in a moment.
The trip itself was positively awesome, my muscle man and I went back to Cozumel, to the resort right next to where we honeymooned (the resort we originally booked for our honeymoon, but on that trip we got upgraded to the nicer resort next door...) Even though the room and food wasn't as divine as the fancier place, it was still really great (that buffet...omg... I ate so much!!) and of course it was the same gorgeous beach! And my parents came along with us, which was super fun also since I don't see them that often
And we got to go scuba diving this time, so that was loads of fun!! I've got tons of pictures to edit, (and lots of videos too thanks to a last minute purchase of a go-pro video camera!) but first there's that little aforementioned sour note..
I arrived back in the states and called during our layover to check on work, see if maybe I could come in late on Friday since I realized our flight was getting back to AL so late. But when I called in, I found out that the other girl who shares my job responsibilities had quit.... YUP... QUIT... While I was out of the damn country... There were some very choice four letter words I would like to have exclaimed, but I was in line for customs and figured that was probably not smart!
So instead I just accepted reality and got my happy little ass up Friday morning to see what the damage was... She had at least put in a one week notice (the day I left on vacation, and I was gone for 8 days) so there was only one day she wasn't there at all, but the last week she certainly didn't go out of her way to do two people's work (as I had done for her 2 weeks ago when she went on vacation) so there's quite a lot now that needs to be done...
Although, on the plus side, her leaving gives me a chance to possibly restructure our job responsibilities and rather than hire a replacement, hire an employee who will do the parts of our jobs I don't really like as much
Really glad my bosses are giving me that option, they have been hesitant to give me much managerial responsibility until now, so there's certainly a silver lining that I'm very much taking advantage of.
Long story short, I thought I was going to be able to catch back up with my submissions very quickly after my vacation, but clearly life has other plans... I'll certainly do my best though!
I really like posting daily on dA, so I'll certainly try to keep up with everything (but you know, the paid gig comes first
