Almost Done

First off, to all of you Facebook users. I feel it necessary to let you know that in order to read the complete post of this blog, you must click the "view original post" link at the bottom. Apparently Facebook will only import so much of my blog. If anyone knows how to remedy this situation feel free to let me know.

Second of all, I only have two more work days at Park Place. I am so looking forward to getting out of there. This week I have been able to really find out just how burned out I've been. With that said, there is a bit of sadness in leaving...especially my staff. At one point, I had my dream staff put together...incredible maintenance, great housekeeping, fantastic leasing staff...then it all sort of fell apart (lay-offs, cutting hours, staff finding better jobs). Oh well, such is the ebb and flow of management. Aside from having a great staff, I have become very good friends with them all. I'll not soon forget Yaime, Seidy, Victor, and Edgar.

The funny thing of this is that I really haven't been counting down the days until I start my new job. I've actually measured it by the number of conference calls I have left. See, every week I have to be in on a conference call with the owner of Park Place. I do not enjoy these calls...never have...it takes away from my precious time to do my work. But, as of today, I only have one left on Monday at 3pm, and then I am done forever with Park Place. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
