Whoever said ‘women only glow’ isn’t spending the day in a suit in the Mexican sun

I got a rock

Day 5 in scenic Baja California Sur, Mexico. Or San Jose. Or Los Cabos. Or Cabo. Whatever. 🙂

In any case, three days (of four) of baking in a shaded area where we’re on “booth bitch” patrol. Zero trips to the pool. Zero trips to the beach, but I’d rather be in the infinity pool any day.

I wanted to shove off to Cabo Wabo last night, but not even the “cheese factor” enticed anyone to want to join me. So I’m literally dragging a colleague out to dinner off the reservation, and then we will just HAPPEN to end up there. 🙂

Because I’m the BOSS …. that’s why!

I ended up at a really good restaurant on the fourth floor of one of the timeshares, in a corner table overlooking the Gulf of California. I had a lovely grilled tomato salad served on a bed of Manchego cheese. Then I had “Mexican fondue,” which was a mixture of Manchego, chorizo and pure magic.

There was alcohol. Too sweet and yummy to be considered alcohol Good God, the alcohol I have consumed on this trip. I might not have been able to put on a swimsuit (dear hotel guests: you’re welcome), but I’ve sure had my tequila. (And everyone else’s.) Ole!

I’ve spent a lot of time with a newer staff person. It’s nice to see how far I’ve come, knowledge-wise — not just in our niche industry, but as a manager, since she’s a brand-new one.

The things that are challenging for her are the things that don’t even make me lose a wink of sleep anymore. I hope I’ve been able to help her to bridge some of the gaps she’s encountering. Or, at least, that I’ve corrupted her sufficiently. 😉

Anyway, I’m sure I’ll make up for lost time on that corrupting bit tonight. It’s good to have goals!
