This weekend was good - I went up to Breckenridge for a retreat with a professional organization (Women in Design) I joined this year. It's a non-profit organization that was created to advocate for and educate women in the "built environment." That means female architects, engineers, project managers, and interior design professions mostly (the first two being professions in which women are underrepresented). I was drafted for the position of co-chair for communications. As I expected this might happen, you might say I volunteered for it. It will be a lot of work, but it'll be good for my resume, good for developing my management skills, and good for the community at large. It will not be good for my social life, but as that is currently non-existent, it appears to be no big loss.*
The main downer of the weekend is that I lost my cellphone somewhere up there. I discovered the lack just as I and the woman with whom I was carpooling were pulling out of the parking lot. We stuck around for another couple hours scouring the condo at which we were staying, my luggage, the route between the pub at which we ate and the condo, and waiting for the bartender to get in, in case the phone had been turned in after the management closed the office of the pub. No phone. We left contact info and I re-searched my bag when we got back, but still no phone. SO, I'm going to a Verizon store tomorrow to get a new one. The big bummer is that I really liked the design of that phone. [sigh] We'll see what options I have tomorrow.
Hope all y'all's weekends were fun!
* I realized later how self-pitying this statement is. The truth is, who knows what'll lead to me meeting someone I like who likes me back?
