So, as an early birthday present to my mom, my sisters and I pitched in to get tickets to take my mom to see the traveling production of Saltimbanco by Cirque du Soleil. We started our evening off with dinner at a local establishment ion St. Chuck called Lewis and Clark's. It was great! I had never been on Main Street in St. Charles before, and it was a lot of fun. Dinner was good and then we headed to the show.
Now, the last time I went to VEGAS with Steph and some other couples, we saw Ka. To be honest, I wasn't too impressed...it was just okay, and I had high(er) hopes for Saltimbanco. It was much better. There was a lot of crazy high-wireness and general fun...my mom had a blast, which is really all that matters!
For those that are unaware, I am no longer traveling to Bogota tomorrow, which is both a curse and a blessing. It's a curse because it will make the engagement a touch more inefficient because we will not be there in person, but luckily, the management team down there is amazing. It is a blessing because I am traveled out after 4 years of traveling; don't get me wrong, my job is sick, and I love the Mothership, but am ready to cut back on the travel schedule, which I will be officially doing during mid-February to a new team.
Overall, life is great...and, I am home for Valentine's Day for the first time in 4 years! (in 2006 and 2007, I was in San Francisco at P-DUB, and 2008, I was in Brazil for the Big M).
Have a great rest of your weekend!
