Well we are just finishing up our little tour of the world down under and we finally came across an internet connection with lots of time at a reasonable cost.

I would love to post what we have been up to but I tried it on a post card or two and it didn't turn out so well. Let's just say that we have been very busy doing lots of fun stuff. Most of the time we have been busy enough not to even see time go by so when it came time to go leave from the Brisbane it was a little surprise to all of us.

On our way down we stayed at a hostel and a Best Western. The hostel was a unique experience and I would suggest that not everyone try it. If you like a quite night it is wasn't the place to do that. Though being in a party town might have had something to do with it. The Best Western seems a little strange because really we aren't west as we are more East. Anyway since there was a big conference going on nearby, we ended up getting a "Spa" room for the cost of a normal double room which was cool. Let me tell you that was a very relaxing experience that was much needed after the previous night's stay in the party town.

We are just cruising around here looking around enjoying our time away but we are both starting to get a little home sick. I guess four weeks will do that to anyone :)

Anyway time to head off to something new and exciting!

Annual conference

Well I just finished up with my annual May conference. It was a whole lot less stressful this year compared to previous years though this is pretty normal for us. Every year we get some process hammered out or created so things go that little bit smoother. This year we did a lot of little things and everything took a lot less time than normal. This is a good thing since it is just what I needed. Some good time to slowly wind down.

As most of you are probably wondering I haven't made it out to of town yet but I am starting to time shift my body clock so that is why I'm posting at near 2am :)

On the bright side I should at least be half way changed by the time we land and that is a good thing considering it is 15 hours offset from the current time zone.

Anyway I will try to post pictures when I can while I'm away. I figure it would be nice if we put all the digital equipment to work for us LOL

The Prophecy

Well who would have thought it would come true.

It seems what I spoke about back on Feb20 did occur. I am now a member of the non working class. The funny thing about it is that I am happy. There is much to say on the subject but be aware I won't say anything here. There is a lot of paper work for me to review since I have no exited the company unwillingly.

The good news is this. At least the parting package that I am getting will be given to me over the next normal pay period that means in the middle of the month I will get a nice little bonus.

Now before all you legal folk out there start saying "This is agreement to terms for my release", the paperwork that needs to be worked on is the agreement. Dianna said that since this is a minimum amount that needs to be paid I am entitled to it anyway but if I am going for more then that is taken up later.

In the mean time I have a no strings attached vacation and I'm planning on enjoying it.
