Place 72 – Day 930: Vancouver, BC – IKEA, We Meet Again!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a busy day yet again!

He had some tickets to do right away in the morning and then he had a team meeting, followed by a meeting with an external vendor, which ended up leading into another meeting. The meetings were… frustrating…These settings actually brought up some more issues with the specific situation, but it was a bit enjoyable trying to figure out some solutions.

Once that was done, he had to talk someone through something which took less time than expected.

The remainder of the day was a lot of tickets and then Curtis made some niceties within the chat application at work, which make things run a bit better.

Kim’s Day

Kim had a super productive day! She sat down with her team and her manager to go through their RACI chart. Given that Kim is looking after a few teams, with just one member or less in each, it took forever! The meeting overran by about 2 hours, but it is 95% complete and it is so satisfying!

She then had a chat with her manager after to review it and write up a communication to send out to the company. They both then met with the COO ( Kim’s previous manager, and her managers new manager!) To present the RACI and discuss potential plans for hiring in the future.


After work, we headed to IKEA so Kim could pickup her desk which she was able to order through work.

Seen as we were going there, we went in for a look around to see if there was anything else we could get.

We got ourselves some replacement glasses (as Curtis keeps breaking them, for some reason) and also some more mugs as well as some other random items and Swedish chocolate, of course.

We drove back home and on the way we picked up KFC to have for dinner.

The rest of the evening was relaxation and just watching some TV.

This Time Last Year

Mr And Mrs Hale
