~potential travel?~

I rec'd an email this morning from the new dept manager.

There is finally a (tentative) plan to bring everyone together for an off-site meeting of some sort.

This would take place in Dallas.

I've been working remotely from TN for 2 yrs & 3 months now w/o a company-paid trip back there. In addition, there is only 1 person on the current team who was actually there when I was located about turnover...

It would be my crap luck that this trip would be planned during my journey down "let's get fat" road. I can only imagine the snugness I will feel in those ultra comfy airplane seats too.

This means I need to buy MORE *&^%$# maternity clothes as I do not have anything that would really work for the office.

I can't help but to be opposed to spending even MORE $$ on clothes that will be worn only 1-2 times (if that). I may even leave the tags on and return them when I get back...I've never done that, but there's a first time for everything.

And since the "falling out" with my aunt, I will not be notifying her of my upcoming trip and will let the company fork out the dough for a comfy hotel room for me instead of staying with her. I'll sleep much better in a hotel room anyway.

We'll see if this pans is 4th quarter after all and who the heck spends money in the 4th quarter??

sounds like a great trip to me. The new clothes thing stinks, but other than that, a trip to DFW sounds great. Sorry things w/your aunt aren't better. Hope the trip comes thru!!

I'd rather not go though - at least not right now.
