I'm Corporate and I'm Here to Help
In the past two weeks I have been in Virginia, North Carolina, Atlanta, and Las Vegas all courtesy of work. We have manufacturing facilities in Virginia and North Carolina and our EHS Manager summoned me (well, ok, I voluntarily visited) to conduct a few environmental compliance audits. Funny how the plant managers were not overjoyed to see me...hmmmm. When I worked for the government we told companies, "We're the government and we're here to help." Now that I'm on the other side, clearly that is bullshit. I'm thankful for the EPA, Ohio EPA, NC DENR, and Virginia DEQ for their costly, I mean necessary, inconvenient, I mean easy to comply with laws. Without all of them, and their convoluted, difficult but oh-so-necessary laws, I would not have a job traveling from site to site telling plant managers, "yes, we HAVE to do this." Seriously, I am only trying to help.
Fish Nets and Heels

Yes... He said this.
When in Vegas, you should wear fish net stockings, with high heels and a short dress...right? Well duh...of course! I had an environmental training and the training company only offered the class in Scottsdale, AZ and Las Vegas, NV. Luckily for me (and Scott) the flights were much cheaper to LV. Just to be responsible I will say this: The environmental training was extremely helpful, useful and I passed. But really, I was in Las Vegas with my husband, for three days, without kids, are you really interested in my environmental training? Right.
Well, Scott and I had a blast. A freakin' blast. I didn't really get the flashiness and gaudiness of Las Vegas, but anywhere that it is perfectly socially acceptable to walk around at 10 a.m. in a short dress, fish net stockings, with a drink, well, I could get used to that. When we were married, Scott and I didn't have a honeymoon so this was our first vacation just the two of us. I so enjoyed being with him, kidless, no responsibilities, in a warm city where anything goes. THANK YOU MIMI and GRANDPA for watching the kids!!!!
Had. A. Blast. (and learned a lot.)
