Joey and I have had a pretty busy June and summer as of today! I am so thankful for a fun filled summer after this past school year. *insert awkward smile* It was...stressful to say. So much so that I got shingles back in May. Thankfully it was on my mid-section along my stomach and back. I hear you can get it on your face- which can make you go blind. Crazy!
Anyways, June started off with a trip to west Florida! Some of this I already posted to the social medias, but something I didn't think about is that once those platforms are gone, so are all my posts. I wanted to make sure our adventures were documented, so back to blogging!
So why Florida? Joey works for Orange Theory Fitness as the head of IT. The studios he supports are in Houston and west Florida. He needed to go to Florida to complete an audit of all the technology goods (AV and computers). Since he happened to be going when I was on break. I was able to go! I helped Joey with the audit of the computers that are used in the front desk. I made sure they were running at optimal speed and working correctly as well as checked the network speeds.
----Something Joey and I learned during the pandemic is that we love working together. In March/April 2020 when schools were closed, but they still had no idea what teachers should do I used that time to help Joey with his work. At that time, he was rolling out tablets to put on the water rowers at all the Houston studios. I helped get the tablets ready and then while all the gyms were closed, we went to each studio and got them all set up. I really enjoyed working on something that was completely different than teaching and also being able to help/spend time with Joey-----
When the opportunity arose to help Joey again, I said yes please!!
I have only ever been to Disney World in Florida so I was excited to get to see other parts.
We would visit studios during most of the day and the late afternoon/evening have time to explore.
We visited Fort Myers and Naples first.
We ate at the Village Pub- highly recommend!
