I am appalled. I just returned to my seat on the floor of the Denver airport. I didn’t like what I saw when I looked in the mirror while washing my hands.
We’ve just made the long drive to Denver from Seattle. We were helping a friend get all of her belongings to her new home, so this was no ordinary road trip. We were in a (violently shaking) 26-foot moving truck for three long days. It was tiring.
So, looking in that mirror, I realized I need sleep, Visine and a haircut (Caanan would agree). Help with the bags under my eyes – the size of marshmallows, by the way – would also be appreciated. Does Preparation H really work?
Anyhow, we’re waiting patiently on standby (currently into hour 10) for a flight that will haul us back to Seattle. Sitting here we realized that the ride from Seattle to Denver was unexpectedly productive and actually worth the heavy eyes and tired bodies. The truck was so loud that we couldn’t really talk or work or do much of anything. That being the case, we just sat quietly much of the time and – at one point – contemplated:
What we are each happiest to have tackled during the first part of 2012.
What we are each most looking forward to tackling during that last part of 2012.
Turns out, that the long distance ride turned out to be the perfect intermission; an ideal chance to reflect on the first part of the year and to dream about the months to come. Now that we’re hanging at the airport, we’re alternating between working and (finally) sharing our thoughts from the road.
We want you to join in our intermission. In the comments, let us know:
#1) What you are proudest to have taken on so far this year (a goal you made movement on, a trip you took, etc.).
#2) What you are most eager to take on at some point during the remainder of the year.
We’ll go first:
Caanan: Cementing the next phase of our business goals (long overdue!).
Kent: Getting back into learning Spanish. No excuses.
What about you? Let us know in comments!
