Place 72 – Day 203: Vancouver, BC – Car Service

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work and had a lot of emails!

He got messages from a few different people asking for some help, so he went off to each of those people and assisted them.

At his team meeting, he wore his new team T-shirt along with the rest of his team. During that meeting, the team surprised their boss by giving her a t-shirt as well which they had all paid for so she could have one too.

Curtis’ day was meeting heavy. There was a big debrief meeting after black Friday, so he had to setup for that as well as attend.

After that, there was another meeting for his team and in the morning he did have a brief meeting regarding some software they had all be trying out.

Curtis was able to try the new coffee that was added to the office collection today. They now have a (hot) nitro brew coffee on tap…one dark roast and one medium. It was incredibly smooth and delicious!

After lunch, there were no meetings, so Curtis had some time to get on with other things.

As well as this, he has a colleague that is visiting from Winnipeg, so he was chatting with him as well as learning some network things from him.

Kim’s Day

Kim left early and dropped the car off at a garage that is owed by one of the dancers she trains with. They had a lovely chat and then Kim took the bus into work.

When she got in Kim did a thorough check of the floor to ensure that everything was clean, as she had recieved a few comments lately about it. She took photos of things that she felt weren’t up to standard and sent them over to be looked at over the evening.

Kim then spent some time booking a meeting room and some catering for a meeting that is taking place tomorrow.

Kim then spent a fair amount of time going over invoices and making sure they are all sent to Accounts so she knows that they will get paid and everyone will be fed during the party.

In the afternoon Kim had a quick meeting with her teammate where they went over the plans for the next few weeks, as there is so much happening!

They have the quarterly new hire social lunch, a pot luck and the holiday party, all by next Friday. They agreed on ‘guess the song’ but a festive addition for the game for the social lunch, they went over what to order for the potluck and agreed to send out a chaser message to remind people and they went over the plan for the holiday party.

Kim explained the menus and rough plan for the room set up.
After the meeting Kim sent out the reminder and then spoke to people in regards to donating old brand backpacks to a Starbucks that is trying to collect 300 to make survival kits for homeless youths. The great thing is it was all approved and marketing even want to come along to take photos too! Its great for Kim to have the ability to help out in this way!

Kim then took 2 trains to go pick up the car. She left with a small list of things that certainly have to be done or may need to be done!

Chilli Chicken

We had some chilli marinated chicken in the fridge so it was time to eat that!

Curtis cooked it up with some more sweet chilli sauce, some soy & some ginger and we had that with rice.

After dinner, Kim went up to the shop to get a few things we needed.

We watched a bit of TV and then went to bed! Today went very fast.


This Time Last Year!
