Not in a Very Good Mood but Trying!

Well, not much going on here so I'm sharing Katy's pic of the teachers at school dressed like penguins.  How cute is that?  

And a pic of Katy and Cody.  I snagged these from her posts.  
Love and miss these two.

Monday was Monday.  A lot had been earmarked on my time in the way of orientation and one quit before the day was over wasting 2 hours of my precious day and the 1 hour the week before in doing offer and prepping.  But it is what it is.  Another Monday in Paradise, lol.

I wish I could say that I was happy about 2019 now.  The flu took something out of me I think.  I've got to get the nutrients pouring back in.  I've laid off a few supplements due to the antibiotics but it's time to get back on full throttle.  I've not been a very happy person emerging from the flu.   I guess it's just that I'm not to par, haven't been eating right b/c all you want is comfort food - if you can eat at all.  And I have been in NO MOOD for non sense.  I've had NO PATIENCE for inefficiency either.  If I've spent precious time working to do something and whatever I'm touching does not work properly it has lit me up. And of course in my current world, nut much HAS WORKED.   I realize the flu should not give license to anger and unhappiness but unfortunately the two came hand in hand.  I'd love to say I'm in a better humor, but I'm not! But one thing is for sure.  The body follows where the mind goes, so it won't be long before I'll be in a better humor.

I just need a new balance in life, a new leaf, a new direction, some change up in my goals and to be realigned with them.  Right now I'm still a little deflated and pretty irritable.  And not very fun to be around.  When I'm like this, I'm liable to be pretty honest as well!  

I know what I want. I just have to figure out how to get there.  It makes me mad to be in between.  And I guess that means I have some figuring and contemplating to do.  Because I don't quit til I win.  It ain't over til I do!  ;-)  Determination is my game.  I don't lose.  

Ya'll have a good Tuesday and I'll try to do the same.  I think I'm just not a very good winter person.  This is not my climate, lol.

Phoenix Remembered

Phoenix was just gorgeous!  While it was nasty back home, and very cold at times, we had beautiful weather for the trip.

After the Botannical Gardens, I came back to register for the event (more of a check in point and receive my Isagenix badge and gift bag).  Afterwards, the others were just coming off the mountain and getting an Uber over to the convention center, so I was able to walk around the block at the Convention Center.  I loved this old church.  

And I'm a sucker for palm trees too.  

That night I made the suggestion of heading to T'Bone's.  It's just out of the way - about a 30 minute excursion or more but it is nestled on the side of a mountain and you can see the night skyline of Phoenix.  We almost did not get to go - as you know how it is in a group - people wane in and out and make other suggestions and so forth.  Ultimately though - they must have liked the sound of it, or perhaps no one had a better suggestion, or maybe the sound of a reasonably priced steak in a western setting with a view and no crowd, had meaning.  

On the way, the Uber driver commented that she couldn't believe we were going all the way out for their steaks which she found fat and greasy.  The crew in the car's hearts dropped (the ones that heard).  And I, who am shy a bit around people I don't know very well, was concerned that my pick would not be a good one for these folks.  So my heart dropped.  However, I think most of the car didn't hear it. I told those that did - I could vouch how good it was as I'd been there numerous times.

The next day off the balcony!  Shaking it!  I had shakes for breakfast except for that last day, when I ate a big breakfast at the hotel as it was a big day of flying home and I needed food that would be breakfast and lunch.

But I loved having a balcony.  I had pretty views from both sides of my room.  And this day we went to tour the Isagenix corporate office (huge) in Chandler, AZ.  WE boarded a tour bus.  

Here is Lou and Lisa, my travel buddies.  I work the FT job with Lisa - I'm sponsored under Lou.  So they are my leaders through all of this.  And good ones they are. 

The building is beautiful. 

I took a pic of the in house grill. It was called George's Hangout.  How cool would it be to be able to walk to the grill to eat inside the building and not have to leave?  I didn't take a pic of the grill itself as there were people and it seemed rude. 

It seemed appropriate to take a pic of the Human Resources department.  ;-) 

And here is the man that is responsible for so much of the nutrition and the science behind it.  Actually winning a Nobel prize for the discovery of "Product B".  Between him and another guy Bill Andrews.  This guy is responsible for the formularies of the nutrition and keeping it so that it is nutritious and pure.  Quality of all the ingredients is important, all natural, and when we say "the best nutrition on the planet" we do mean it.  Often the ingredients are sought in countries far away to get the purest forms.  If you have ever had this nutrition, you believe it. I never want to be without it, I know that. 

But this guy above, and Product B, with the telemores and all.  I'll have to do a post on it.  But our DNA gets ragged on the ends - our telemores and that is what causes our bodies to break down - it's our telemores within our DNA at the cell level.  Product B fixes telemores - it repairs DNA - it reverses aging?  Quite the discovery.  I have Product B in my vitamins now!  It's a diffferent name as it's gone through it's 4th generation of improvement.  It's Isagenesis in name now.  I have the regular vitamins + Isagenesis.  It's exclusive to Isagenix.  You can't get it anywhere else.

Afterwards we went out for a Taco - Lou wanted a Taco and so did I. Lisa was ok with whatever but mainly appeasing to us to have our taco fix!

We ate at a place that used to be a church.  They actually kept a lot of the history within it's walls which was really cool. 

                                                    Back at the steak house.....Here is a bunch of our crew.  It's amazing that something like nutrition would bring a group of people together.  An amazing amount of weight loss around the table too if you added it up.

Now back at the Taco place.  The pics got out of order and I'm not rearranging at this point. lol Best I remember the salad was not that great - something in it I was not fond of.

But the tacos were fantastic.  And this was the name of the place.  The Taco Guild.   They are known for Phoenix's best tacos.

More photos of the church at the convention center from the 3rd floor of the convention center.

Panoramic shot.

I was told my future was so bright I needed sunglasses! 

Our team dinner was that night.  I'm not sure I have any photos of our group from that night.  I was pretty full from lunch.  We sat at the bar and had a corona and chips and dip (free) while we waited for the crew.  And so at dinner I just ordered soup.  It was good.

Here's what it looks like walking around the restaurant.  The name of it was Canyon Cafe. 

And back at the convention center the next day!  

After a full day of conference - which was excellent, we headed toward "The Kettle Black".  It was kinda like an Irish Pub feel.  Loved it.  

Sun rise of the last day of conference.  This was coming out of my hotel room.  The view was pretty on both sides.  

The pictures didn't capture it but while the sun came up it made beautiful golden hues on the buildings as we Ubered in to the Conference Center.

On break back at the Conference Center, I found a side porch and did a Panoramic view.

And it was time for a cup of Joe!  

This was an amazing pic.  These folks were there and just seeing how their lives have changed - just because they are putting proper nutrition in the bodies.

And then after the conference a bunch of us began walking to our destination for dinner and also where many of us would be getting the flu.  We don't know that for sure but the guess is good.

But first a pic of our group.   Many are from Atlanta but from many other places as well. 

I was shooting for the decor and not the people and here is what I got for Mother Bunch Brewing.  I thought it was hilarious that we go to dinner here as it was a brewery I was the only one that got beer, but they did have a full menu and other bar drinks so many had wine or margarita.  But what was really served up was the flu virus.  

Of this crew, 5 of us got the flu.  So you had to think that perhaps it was here we contracted it. 

And there you have it.  I'm off of here to go get a day of work done for my day job on a Sunday since I did get that darn flu.  What an inconvenience it has caused for so many, by putting me behind.  But what can you do but try to catch up.  It's so much work and I'm so behind and it keeps shoveling in.  

I'm trying - and determined and committed to getting it caught up as much as I can humanly possibly do it.  It's getting to where I stay behind anyway as we don't have enough help so people end up just having no choice but to wait in line until we can get their thing processed.  

Anyway, once I catch up I can start working on my goals.  What a nasty way to start out Jan with the flu - sure puts a wrinkle on things.  But I'm emerging as I can and we'll take life on from here.  I'm very excited about a few things when I have time to be.  lol

Geeky Day and Phoenix Botanical Gardens Video

Well, here we are on a Saturday and my day has all but rearranged itself.  My intentions were to get up early and start working.  Work I did but on a couple of projects I've mean meaning to do.  One thing led to another and after about 10 geekified hours later, I find that my photos have all been redon on my iphone - a 2018 project I vowed would be done by end of year.  And I wanted to show you all my Phoenix photos and it was going to take too long so I put the Botanical Garden all in a video.  And then the perfectionist in me has to go do it the long way.  And tweak every little thing about all 89 some odd photos or video clips.

 Midway through the photo project I got sidetracked.   I realized that one of my customers enrolled a customer and I got all excited.  I had no idea it had happened.  I should have.  It sent me a notice and I thought the notice was about someone that was already a customer b/c she had the same first name.  Anyway, I realized that my team was growing and got all excited.  I had to look to see what was going on in my back office.  While I was there I did my orders for the next month and then also ordered some under George to make the other leg even out for a cycle.  Yes it's legal.  I needed the BV on that side so ordered some under him.  And I needed to do the Walmart order because the dogs and cat were running out of food and I didn't want to have to go to Walmart in person.  So I got that done.

And did any laundry even get started? Nope.  And no ironing done.  So I'm a little put out with myself for not doing work first, but I'm about to go start a load of laundry and then go start on my Full Time HR Job work and then tomorrow I'll still try to wear all three hats of HR job, the PT job and the housework!  We'll see how that goes.

George went to town to get our next quarter's seafood.  We are well stocked in seafood, beef and pork still.

And it has rained cats and dogs today.  And that is why I brought stuff home to do.  I didn't want to drive in the rain.  Trying to do work on a weekend day though when you are home is so hard.  I kept thinking "ok in a minute, ok in a minute", but after this blog entry it's time.  Working on a Saturday night.  I'm unreal behind.

My voice is getting better with each and every Zpak pill.  I'm mending quickly.

My back evidently was scalded a bit - although not red and no blisters - from the hot water while I had a fever.  I kept turning it up hotter but it didn't feel too hot on me.  I guess it was.  My back has felt sunburned for 3 days.  I can't figure out anything else it could have been.  But I do remember leaning over in the shower to let the heat sear through the core of me when I was chilled to the bone.  Today when I put aloe on my back - it's the first relief I've felt in two days.  My back has been what has made me feel the worst the last two days, lol.  Is that not weird?  It's almost embarrassing.  I will put on more aloe before going to bed.  I think that has also impacted my not sleeping as good.

Last night I slept in 4 hour chunks instead of two like the last few.  So that is good.

And I'm going to leave you with the Phoenix YouTube video of the Botanical Garden.  I need to start taking my better camera with me for these shots so I can do away with the black sides when using the iphone.  If you watched it - let me know and give me a thumbs up on YouTube if you can.  And even follow me.  I'll be doing these more often to practice a bit.

Tomorrow I promise to post the rest of the Phoenix pics!  There are not as many of those but I went wild at the Botanical Garden as it was crazy!  So this video is six minutes of dessert and southwest botanical and landscape scenes out there and not much else.  It's beautiful but if it bores you just click off.

Ok off to get stuff done and quit being geeky!

Normal Temps this Morning

I woke up with normal temps this morning.  Doc said stay off til Monday but I am going in for a little while today to print/scan/offload/transfer some things over.  With no fever the threat of spreading the virus is gone. 

Do I feel my best ever?  Heck no!  But I can tell I'm more normal than I have been all week.  I had a rough day yesterday and wondered if that meant a turning point.  It sounds familiar - the day you start to pull your hair out and get angry at everything - the next day is better suddenly.  Wonder why that is?

Supposed to be a nasty weather system come through.  I am likely going to work tomorrow either from work or home.  Depends on what I get done today and what I need to do tomorrow.  I just can't print, scan, and such. 

As for personal contact today - I plan on staying cooped up/holed up in the small chance it has not been enough time - or the cold part is still contagious - so it's not 24 hours fever free to make sure - so there is that.  So I'll keep my distance.  Likely will not feel like staying the whole day but will do what I can.

My entire back area is sore - like sensitive.  I thought it might be from coughing but I've not really coughed that much.  I woke up with it like that yesterday and it's still like that today.  I have not experienced anything quite like that except for when I had shingles - it started out that way but on one side.  So it is still that way this morning and I hope it goes away as it hurts for anything to even touch my skin.  Did I toss and turn so much I chaffed my skin? I've never had that happen before either.  It started before I took the first med yesterday so I know it's not the Z- pak.  Or did I scald it in the shower while feeling cold with fever and couldn't tell how hot it was?  It feels like a sunburn kind of sensitive but it's not red at all.  Weird.  I will take Tylenol b/c it is my main worrisome symptom right now?

And wow - that Z pak starts to control the crud really fast.  They don't want to give it to you.  It's supposed to be for infections of the ear and bronchial - and can be given for pneumonia as well.  I DO think my ears were going into infection.  She agreed they were filled with fluid.  That normally is next.  Also I was wheezing yesterday afternoon - and I wasn't doing that earlier so I think it was about to go into pneumonia - maybe or just in my bronchial.  But I am breathing better, have hardly any sinus drainage or coughing - some but minimal.  It is clearing it up.  They don't want you to know that a z pak will do that.   I have many and I know what works for me.  It won't clear up the flu but it will knock the crud.  I mean I guess they don't consider snot an infection?  lol Well the Z pak must think it is b/c it clears it up in a hurry. 

Can you believe my doctor (at the walk in center) tried to play dumb with me?  She acted like she didn't know what a z pak was?  Really?  So I played along with her act acting like she really didn't know.  I explained to her what antibiotic it was and that she should google it sometime ::insert giggle here::  She said "well I can't give you that because what you have is viral".  I explained that it was not for the viral but for the infection that is happening in my ears and bronchials - b/c I will be back in here in two days again.  I explained to her (playing her game) it was not for the flu itself but complications of the flu.  She then said "Ok I'll give it to you but tried to get me to switch to steroids".  No I'll take the z pak thank you - I have to do this every time and I know what works. 

So yeah.  I knew I had to fight but I know what works with me.  The doctors and the pharms can continue on with their games and rules.  And I have my own set.  While they own the world, I'll at least be able to breath again.  I pray that one day for the sake of the earth that doctors are allowed to practice again and treat people with what works and not be controlled by the $$$$$$$$$$.  It'll never happen as our world continues to spin out of control, but at least in heaven we won't have sickness. 

And no night.  Hmmm.  I may miss night.  I kinda like night.  I have never thought of that before but I like the fact that there is day and night.  We'll have God's love and God's natural light and to be away from that in heaven will not be good, so I'll take it.  But I do love the coming and going of the sun - the sun rise and sun sets.  The moon and it's mystique.  The stars. 

Anyway, I'm getting off tap here so I need to go and get my shower now that dogs are fed and walked, coffee has been made and sipped on and George is through with his shower. 

Soon I'll catch up on pics, but I have to catch up on work first. 

Can we start this year over?  Geez. I think if I knew I was going to catch the flu I would have cancelled the trip to Phoenix.  It was a good trip and I loved loved loved the Botanical Gardens and my day out, loved the info at the conference, and loved making new friends.  But geez I could have gone without the flu.

Flu Continued

Up this morning.  Slept well the first half of the night but the drainage has kicked in and coughing as it goes into bronchials and nasal passages and throat. The world is blessed as I've lost my voice.  My fever is at 100 at least w/o Tylenol.  So that means with Tylenol it would probably go down to normal.  So I'm going to the doc today so I can see if I can get the z pak.  I didn't want to have to go twice - so I just waited til I was in an infected state.  Otherwise they won't give it to you.  But now it's in my ears and chest and sinus hurting really bad above my eye when I look up.  So now is the time for doc.  I suppose I should stay out another day with still fever at 100.  I will plan on trying to go tomorrow.  And Saturday if our offices allow.  One could argue I get more done at home as far as being able to concentrate on things.  But it makes it hard w/o a proper printer and scanner. I have one but it's not a good one and very cantankerous.  I may have to try and use it today though for a couple of things.

I felt pretty good yesterday with the Acetaminophen bringing it down from 102 to 100 and it was before all this drainage did its damage overnight.  I was even down to 99 last night before bed with more of it so I could work through until dinner was ready - then we watched Below Deck. The coughing surprisingly has made my muscles very sore this morning.

All this is so very annoying but what can you do.

So off to the doc today and hoping for Z pak.  I hope they won't be stubborn about it.  If so, They will witness me being stubborn.  I am not wanting to argue about it but I'm liable to, lol.  I am ready to feel better and I know the zpack works well when I'm in this condition.  I don't think I'll be taking no for an answer.  :-O  It won't be pretty if they say no.

I looked in the mirror - I look like death itself.

I thought the year was getting off to a pleasant start other than work being wildy overburdened, but I guess not.

This too shall pass.  In the mean time, off to take a shower and to be first in line at the doc.  To make matters worse - the rain is heavy outside and I'll get to be out in that.  No one to drop me off or anything like that.

So far George is clear and not infected with it.  He either has good immune going (normally he does) or the virus stays laden for a few days which I think it does.

I think I've had the flu like every other year?  I'm not really sure but I think I'm done with the flu shot.  I think - not sure - but I think it impacted me in a negative way in my gut biome and still not corrected totally.  And then it didn't even help.  Even some doctors are finally admitting they don't believe in the flu shot anymore.

My eyes look horrible too - big huge circles.  I guess it is from no solid sleep the past few days.  I was thinking I was sleeping pretty good but I guess not so if it is in 2 hour spurts - so I look horrible.

My throat is sore, can't talk, and the congestion has really set out to make for a miserable day.

So off to the doc I go for the first appointment at walk in.

I have to make sure my company's insurance will cover the walk in center I use - it's a little more selective than Gibson's insurance was.  I don't want that to make me mad so I need to check that to see if I have to drive across town (that will make me mad too).  My walk in center is very close and right at the end of our neighborhood.  Tempted to just go there anyway.  At worst out of pocket.

I know I'm a little moody today - my positive self is not glowing during the flu days.  Just dealing with all this crud now.  Good grief.

And I don't like being behind in life!  I'm catching up though slowly.  Everyone including me will have no choice but to be patient.  We were short anyway in help so whenever you try to take off whether it be vacation, funeral, sickness - it's just a disaster.

Anyway - ya'll take care and I hope you don't get this in your circles!

Oh - one more thing!  I called Comcast and got the router fixed.  All they needed to do was reboot.  I had asked George if he would call the night before but he didn't.  So I had to call yesterday so I could work as it kept knocking me off and then I'd have to relog into our internet and then into our VPN at work - was soooo annoying.  Once I got annoyed enough I called.  Now we are back in business and the router is reaching everything.  Not sure why it has to be rebooted or what that does.  It's an Xfinity router so at least the cable company could do it.  They were really nice but they don't want to let you talk.  I couldn't half way talk anyway.  I kept teller her the reboot hadn't taken yet that we had to wait til it reset but she was rushing me on to try my PC.  I told her it is not going to work until the router has had time to reset.  She kept saying "oh don't worry about the network - it's ok - just try your computer now".  Well ok dumtwat, if that is what you want I will follow your directions just to prove a point.  And of course it wasn't working.  She put me on hold to get more help.  In the meant time the router finished booting up and of course it was working but I had to wait til she got back to say "it's working".  I started to hang up but that didn't seem nice.  She laughed at our internet title (network).  That was good b/c we meant for it to be funny. 

Well ok off of here to see what the doc says.  I don't think we are going into pneumonia or anything as no pain and I'm not sick at my stomach and fever going down.

Have a good day!

Flu Bug

Well, I can't believe it has been 3 days since I posted and I didn't get to post much last week either.  You all have probably thought that I have quit blogging.

Monday about 2:30 I began feeling a sore throat after having a dry cough all day.  I thought something was in the air.  I guess it was - the flu bug.  Likely was caught in Phoenix.  But so glad I got home before it hit.  When I got home my fever was shooting up to 101.

Tuesday morning I got up at 5:30, dressed and headed in to work - in sweats - to retrieve my computer and work to take home.  Oh gosh you would not believe how behind I am.  I did a few limited things yesterday and responded to email but found it hard to concentrate with that kind of temperature and took naps all through the day.  Was miserable with the fever and head pounding and feeling like my eyes about to bulge out of my head.

Last night I began taking Acetaminophen when the temp reached 102.7.  It brought it down 2 points.  This morning again it was 102.7 and I took more. The head is breaking loose now and I have kleenex boxes in every room and cough drops not far.  With the Acetaminophen kicking in, I've been able to eat today.  Some mac and cheese and peanut butter and crackers, and now munching on blue corn chips with my coffee.

The internet keeps going on and off - our TV has not been able to connect in several days.  And now our devices and laptops are having issues so I think the router might be going bad.  It's extremely annoying as I'm trying to work and it keeps knocking me off.  That said our internet here has always come and gone momentarily but usually comes back as quick as it left so I've not fussed but once about it.  But it is getting worse now.  Sometimes you can't even recognize our website or wifi - which means to me the router is going bad.  But what do I know?

I need to be at work ya'll!  It's so hard to work from home with no printer, no scanner and away from our files.  I feel so disconnected and helpless.  I may work Saturday if our offices will allow it (alarm wise).

So I'm unsure about tomorrow.  I probably need to stay away another day so as not to infect anyone else but I'm tempted to go and hole up in my office with door closed and be remote from everyone.  I feel better today with the Acetaminophen and will feel even better tomorrow.  If the internet keeps acting up I may have no choice.  I would feel bad though if I still had germs and spread them.  So I guess I'll keep trying to work from home and then knock it out of the park on Friday and Saturday.

Well, just wanting to pop in and say hello.  I'll be posting some Phoenix pics over the next few entries.  Just don't have it in me today.  Behind on everything in life.  Just wanting to feel good again.  But today is certainly an improvement on yesterday!  At least Tylenol is getting me out of bed.

Home Again!

Well, after a very easy, smoothe, and quick flight, I find myself home.  We descended into clouds and into a cold rainy Nashville.  I am some what unpacked, a load of laundry in, and have been well fed tonight by the spouse.  

Maisy met me at the airport along with George.  

We were very busy day and evening with our general sessions and then dinners after the sessions, with the crew.   Then time with George checking in each night.  

Then I would check our groups Instant Message feed for what the latest details were.  It was hard to get all of us in one place w/o reservations, so we ended up splitting up into groups and everyone kept up my IM.  It was a very active feed.  

But now to switch gears.  It seems like tomorrow should be Saturday.  lol  So I'm so off on the schedule but it's all good.  I'm pretty rested.  And I did have some restful time at the beginning of the week with some sleep in mornings.  And it was a lovely and fun time with our crew.  Lots of good information.  

Glad to be home.  It's been a good vacay and a great seminar and I have a lot of good ideas that I am very excited about.  

I had to change the blog decor.  Coming back from Phoenix and to my dull snowy blog - was depressing.  So I had to step it up a bit.  George laughed b/c he said the decor is not "Southern".  Well, who cares.  This Southern girl has some fried up L'Attitude changes every now and then - which is what this is all about - my lattitude changes and my attitudes in between.  

This Southern Fried chic enjoyed her week and made a lot of friends.  I'll be posting more tomorrow or Wednesday, if the time allows.

I do have to spend some time this week setting some goals.  

I'll get her done.  When the goals are in writing, we have so much better chance of reaching them.
So ON TO it we go! 

And tomorrow back to the world of HR and the land of acquisitions and transitions.  My side gig may be taking a back seat in the a.m daylight hours, but it has no monetary ceilings like the day job does. And that is pretty exciting to build something that will pay you while you sleep? 
:-O  :-D

Nite Nite.  Glad to be home!

Hello from Phoenix

Maisy misses me George says! And I miss her. He gives her food and treats to console her but she is sleeping a lot when I call! 

She licked my hand the morning I left, knowing something was up. I’m not used to being away for this many days. But I miss her at bedtime as we talk and I rub her tummy and then we sleep. 

I am in Phoenix with our team.  We have eaten dinner the last two nights with various parts of the crew as they arrive. 

I need a selfie stick... good grief! lol 
Here is the view from the front of my hotel suite.

And here it from the back at sunset. 

We ate dinner at the arrogant butcher on our first night.

Here is the hotel courtyard where did a zoom conf call with our group. 

Last night we ate at a favorite restaurant of mine called T-Bones. The filet was wonderful.

So yesterday while the group hiked a very steep and treacherous hike, the Lord led me to the botanical gardens instead. It was perfect. I loved it and took so many pics. I’ll wait til I get home to share them though. I was on my own but had a good day and was happy to be where I was! 

But until then here is a pic...It was a gorgeous 70 degree day and a wonderful walk through dessert life with dessert flowers blooming. 

I also had lunch there on the grounds and had watermelon green tea. Yes I got the burger. Mainly because it was so much cheaper than everything else and it was awesome. I also ate with a bird sitting opposite me so I wasn’t alone. 
And those fingerling potatoes were really good.


Then off to a brewery because it is what George would do lol and I had the time. So off to The Beer Shop in Tempe nearby. I Uber’d every where! 

Then off to register for the event and get my badge etc. 
Here’s the brewery pics.

And The Phoenix Convention Center area.

And then walked around downtown waiting for friends to get off the hike and Uber over. They registered and we all headed for dinner on the side of the mountain overlooking Phoenix. Slept pretty good last night. We have a tour of Isagenix headquarters this morning and then a free afternoon and our big team dinner with everyone tonight. 

Y’all have a great day! I’m so tempted to rent a car and go to the Grand Canyon and skip the conference lol. But I won’t! 
Take care!
