Received a call today from the woman who has spearheaded the trainings I have attended since January and who got the grant that allowed me to do that and to do the big – BIG – presentation last week.
She has some more money to spend.
She wants to spend some of it on me – well, actually to send me to a conference in Las Vegas – just two weeks after I return from the surprise trip I mentioned a coupla posts back. Not just me, but me and two other specialized trainers (that’s what we’re called – isn’t that cool? Specialized Trainers – heh) Okay, and I know that those “me’s” should probably be I’s, but, Ize not gonna change ‘em, ‘kay? ‘Kay!
If she is able to arrange for the?three of us to make the trip, I won’t have to spend a nickle – my airfare will be paid and my hotel and everything! Per diem, too, I think. Not sure how that will all work with my salary, but whatever they do NOT pay, my agency will pay – since this is a specialized conference. Woot!
Oh – and we are going to be in a hotel that does NOT have a casino! Gasp! I know!! After all, they even have slots in the AIRPORT in Las Vegas!! So, I guess that I will have to get the one armed bandit fever taken care of either in the airport or at another casino. That can be arranged if I feel it is necessary. lol.
Should know by sometime next week whether or not this is all going to fly. Heh – well, whether or not this old girl is gonna fly. The tickets are costing a bit more than the hosting agency had offered to pay, so they will have to approve the extra expense for us to go. So, we will see what we will see.
