PostHeaderIcon A Day Off…

Those of you here in Austin know that we’ve had the wettest and weirdest Summer in recent history. My niece is here visiting and we had all this fun stuff planned around office hours, but it wouldn’t stop raining!

Late Wednesday night, I looked at my schedule and workload (not to mention the weather forecast), contacted my main sub and by 11pm we had bought tickets to head to Sea World all day Thursday. Who has the ability to do that? Not many people. It made me realize how much I appreciate what I do, that those long hours working have paid off, all that marketing coming to fruition. Yeah, a few things came up, but I had the ability to check email, send a text message to my team members and go on and enjoy the park. My kids? Well, they think mom and dad are pretty cool 🙂

We had a great time and loved every minute of it. And my clients? They were well taken care of.

I truly am grateful that all of our hard work has paid off. As OffAssist gets more mature, it makes me feel a sense of accomplishment, but more than that, a sense of pride. And, ya know, I shouldn’t panic when I think about taking an unscheduled day off. So what? As long as the clients get the very best service and I get some much needed R&R;, it’s all good…

Some pics from our day just because I can never pass up an opportunity to show off my little cuties…

L-to-R: Jamie (6), Cassie (4) and cousin Marie (8) – And yes, that really is what life with Cassie is like.
