work calls me to new york fairly often.
headquarters is there.
my extended team is there.
i sometimes have to be there.
i usually work it so that i'm on the first flight out in the morning.
then on the last flight home.
it makes for a very long day.
but it means i'm only away from home for a day.
that's better for the kids/home.
but it's kinda torture for me.
so when meeting schedules mean i have to do an overnight
i try to make the most of it.
set-up all my face-to-face meetings.
have coffee or drinks with a colleague.
take a stroll down 5th avenue for some shopping.
hit a food truck.
and when schedules align meet-up with my
brother and sister-in-law for dinner.
how cute are they?
then it was back to the hotel,
with a surprise upgrade to the penthouse suite.
high roller, right?
reality sets in pretty quick.
facetime connection problems
and then there's the dreaded commute home the next day.
in a snow storm.
penthouse dwelling replaced with a
corner of the floor at penn station near a outlet.
travelin' highs, lows
and all the stuff in between.
