Place 72 – Day 198: Vancouver, BC – Mimosas, Bloodwork & Coffee Explosion!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work and did some admin as usual, and then had his daily team meeting.
After that, he tried to get the nitro coffee sorted, but after doing exactly what he does each week, it didn’t seem to work!

He ended up, throughout the day, speaking with 2 different people at 2 different companies and it was determined that the nitrogen gas may be too low for it to work, but others were working so it’s a little confusing!

During troubleshooting, Curtis managed to spray coffee everywhere, including all over his face!

Curtis had mimosas and pancakes at work around 10:00! It was fun, the pancakes were homemade and the drinks were great. Nice it chat with the few people in the office (due to the Mexico trip) and have some food and drink.

Post food and drink, Curtis helped someone with the printer, which ended up taking 45 minutes!

Curtis joined in on some games with people from his team and a team close to his. This was for an hour and then he had lunch.

After lunch, Curtis completed an onboard and did some more admin, then met Kim to go home!
Kim’s DayShortly after Kim got in the weekly shop arrived, so she organised all of that and then responded to a few emails that she missed from being out of the office on Friday. She then headed to a LifeLabs centre to let them steal some of her blood for testing. It was very easy, she was in and out within 15 minutes, even though she arrived early!

On her way back to the office Kim stopped by the Youth Centre she dropped the donations off at the other day and handed in some nappies as a colleague had a few spare that no longer fit their babies.
when she got back into the office Kim sorted through some invoices and took a look into one that she didn’t understand further. She ended up having to reach out to the travel agency to see what was going on. Towards the end of the day it became apparent that it was a fair charge, so that is good news.
Kim spent a little of her time today trying to find a venue for a summer party. She had a great idea in mind, but cannot seem to find a venue that would work at all! It’s a little frustrating, but it’ll all come together in the end. Kim also took a look into setting up a blood drive across all 5 offices, but it turns out that it’s not possible as mobile collections are not a thing and Kim just made them up.

In the afternoon Kim spent a lot of her time looking into why a letter was returned. It was rejected by the postal service due to insufficient funds to send the letter, however when Kim ran it through the system again it printed the same amount of postage. Kim called the postal service who said that the postage should easily cover the letter and that maybe it was an issue with the machine, which led Kim to have a 30 minute phone call with no new information at the end of it.

Kim ended up heading to the post office and dropping it off by hand and asking if they know why it would have been rejected and they didn’t believe that it should have been. So the letter is back in the post and Kim is just hoping it doesn’t come back in a few days!

Evening TogetherWe had a weekday evening together today, which seems rare!

Usually Kim’s out at pole or Curtis is doing something, but not tonight!

Kim went to the shop to get a few things for dinner and then made another Risotto!

We watched the film Good Boys and ate some food for the evening, with some TV thrown in there too.

Perfect!


This Time Last Year!
