Mega CommutingJudi Vandenburg
After much belly-aching and back-and-forth, tears, unending support, love, and “we can DO this!” attitude, we have temporarily split the business, with Diana having moved into our new production facility in California, and Judi-and-family fulfilling orders from our location in Illinois. Our plan is to visit each other for a week each month, taking turns on location. So far (2 months) it’s working out, though commuting is expensive, turns useful time into mind-numbing-Spirit-Airlines-no-wi-fi-can’t-recline-my-seat-can’t-sleep-can’t-work-I’ll-never-get-this-time-back-time and I’m sure we’ll be very happy once we’re permanently reunited in June 2017 (waiting for the Big Kid to graduate H.S.)
When we ARE together, the creative juices flow, new products get engineered, old processes get revamped, we step up our professionalism, and we enjoy our time together very much. I’m so pumped that our company is old enough to be able to say we have “old” processes!
California is beautiful, and I’m excited about making a new life here.
Such is my first blog post – keeping it real!
Wishing you both all the best while you mega-commute! Just a few short months to go.
Happy new year to you!
