There have been a fair number of changes over the last month since my last update.
I decided, after a lot of thought and chat with other parties, that I would not be continuing as the Club Manager for the Babe Ruth Rockies. There were a lot of reasons for me to step down and I could only think of a few to continue. I am going to remain on the Board of Directors so I will still be involved. I may return to umpiring, I have not decided as yet. I wanted to give the league plenty of notice so that they would be able to fill the role. It is likely tough to find a non-parent willing to do this job.
My new job at work is keeping me very busy. I am enjoying it. I still get to work from home which is awesome. No commute – no traffic, no people on the bus and train and a big savings since I don’t have to put out $100 a month on transit.
We have a work conference coming up, next week actually. I have my regular dog sitter looking after Blondie and Hera. It has been a year since they’ve seen her, Hera is much larger than she was, much sweeter as well though. I know they are taken good care of when I am gone.
I am flying out on Sunday morning, having lunch in Toronto and dinner with my Aunt and then heading to the conference on Monday in Collingwood. Should be a good week. There have been a LOT of staff changes at works so it will be good to meet new people.
Also on the work front, I may be making an overseas trip in the coming months. This is yet to be confirmed but it looks like I will be going to Mauritius in the middle of the Indian ocean. I may find our more about this next week at the conference – guess I will see. It would be an experience of a lifetime for sure.
