I'm on Vacation

Currently sitting among a sticky at 28 degrees Celsius, listening to the wind make xylophone-like sounds as it rushes through the drying palm branches, I am on vacation.

Good morning, Punta Cana

Unfortunately though, my husband is not. He’s working about 4 hours each morning helping the TEAM 1040’s morning show with Barry MacDonald and Scott Rintoul broadcast on location. However, I bought my way into the trip and I’m going to have a full on vacation, even if it kills me (although hopefully it will achieve quite the opposite).

Team 1040 Group Check InLast night our good friend Duane, who is down here staying at another hotel, met up with our group outside the resort compound gates as about 20 of us watched the Canucks via satellite. You can take the girl out of Canada but you can’t take the Canada out of the girl.

Thanks to Tony Roma’s Punta Cana location staff for staying open til at least 2am so that Vancouverites could get their hockey fix (just hours after we landed). Another shout out goes to Air Transat staff for finding out where we could watch the game and for making sure we could all catch it.

To think, last week at this time I was 11,000 ft up a mountain in the Alps and now I’m kneading white sand as smooth as powdered sugar between my toes. After 18 months of working 12-hour days 6 days a week (with a work trip here or there) building my company, it’s nice to take a bit of a break.

You can listen weekday mornings to the TEAM 1040 to hear from BMac & Scotty about what the group has been up to. Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to all of our loved ones.
