Okay, so my expense tracking isn't going as well as it should. But until I have time to sit down and go over our accounts/receipts, I'm just trying to keep up with the individual trips. Hopefully I can knock the details out later.

I'm at my work conference right now, and it's going well. It's really incredible to be meeting with the Senior Vice Presidents of different departments, and actually conversating with them. Makes me feel like I don't deserve to be here, haha.

It's also nice to have my own room. I thought I would feel left out because I am the only one without a roommate (odd number of people)... and it is like that a little, but for the most part it's nice. I don't have to worry about my roommate coming in drunk with a guy in the middle of the night, and I can spread my stuff all over without anyone caring.

The group of people here is pretty good as well. Alot of Type A personalities... which isn't really me. It's so funny when you get pegged as a "quiet" person just because you can't get a word in edge-wise. And we are all going through the same program, and are from different states, so that is interesting. It's neat to see the few people I knew, and meet others that I never would've known.

I do miss BF though, and my pup & cat. He is holding down the house like a true bachelor pad... I think he had plain biscuits for supper. Poor thing, lol.

Well... guess I'd better get to bed, I've got to get up early again tomorrow.

    One of the few times I use envelopes is during the biz trip. Collect receipts, do the nightly wallet purge and stick them in the envelope. Also know what you can get reimbursed. For instance, for us, no liquor.

    Sounds like you're having fun!

    All my life I've been pegged as the quiet one, and my perspective is like yours -- I'd talk if you'd all shut up for a minute! Smile Guess I'm not an interrupter.

    Our policy is similar baselle... they won't reimburse for alcohol if the receipt is itemized. But we've figured out how to get around that one a bit, haha.
