Houston has been…fun! I’ve been training with some of the guys and gals, who are off the walls smart, by the way. I’m excited about the excellence I see in this company, not to mention its potential.
And, I’ve encountered some new experiences. I’m kind of a “land rig” type oilpatch girl. I’ve met some consultants this week who do offshore platform type drilling and completion work, even some who “decommission” platforms. They talk a whole new ball game, and it’s very interesting. I’m being the supersponge, soaking it all up. Neat stuff, this other side of the oilpatch!
I’ve seen some really good friends, as well as some customers that are developing into friends, and that is always fun. My boss came in yesterday, and we discussed schedules, so I can plan the next couple of months. I’m excited about that, as well. New frontiers, new mountains to climb, it will be an adventure.
And today, I received an e-mail from my boss, right before lunch. I read it, and a couple other managers were copied, and I read it again.
In two weeks, he wants us to go to Orlando, Florida, to a meeting, which also equates to a big industry social event. And…they want us to take our spouses. Slap me ‘side the haid…be I dreaming???
Jumpin’ Jillies!! I think I can get used to this kind of stuff.
Hello, Southwest Airlines? I need to make some reservations….
