A Few Things I Do

So I've probably been tapped to lead the new Quality Control Initiative which has been piloted in East and Central and will soon be rolled out here in West -- so next month I will travel to Dallas to check out Central's shop and what they're doing. I will be there a week, the second week of October, and at least I checked out ahead of time that there IS free WiFi in the hotel.

I don't think anyone I know or what to see is actually in the Dallas area, and Austin is too far away, so I expect I'll spend most evenings doing much what I do here, watching TV and playing on the Internet.

What I'm hoping is that this will finally give me the actual promotion that will move my pay grade to suit the amount of work I'm already doing.

It has finally stopped storming (although there was another "popup" storm last night that blew roofs off up at 3rd and Bell), and there's no more puddles in the yard, but there is black mold EVERYWHERE. Ugh. How do you folks who live in regularly humid climes deal with this?

good luck. I hope this does lead to that promotion

I'm sure there is probably plenty to do in Dallas

You get used to the mold (being allergic to it I get to scrape it off the windows with gloves and mask on)

Absolutely no clue at all. My boss hasn't even HINTED at it.

Coolness -- and yes, I send good thoughts for your promotion/pay increase.

Dallas actually does have cool stuff to do. I'd check the Dallas Observer for ideas.

Ooo, thanks. I'll see what I can do -- my teammate is actually renting the car (we're sharing that expense, of course, since we had to already have two fares and two hotel rooms on the company dime!), so I may be limited to what I can WALK to...!

Hugs!!!

*sending positive vibes re: promotion/raise* You deserve it! You do terrific work and undo the terrible work of idiots!

Yeah. I don't like mold and mildew, either. I keep up a desultory battle, but it doesn't really work when the weather doesn't cooperate.
