My clients and I get around. Some of us further away than others!
Had to stop and take a quick inventory of who is where and then realized, I had to share.
Friday Morning, Party of 2
I took to DCA early Friday morning, the first day of summer, two giddy adults bound for Miami and then eventually a Carnival cruise ship the next morning. No idea where the boat is planning to dock, just totally jealous that they’re on a boat. Yea – these would be my father & step-mom! Bon Voyage!
Friday Morning, Party of 4
Family heads north to Pennsylvania to move son into college dorm, leaving me with their pooch and pool in the back yard, complete with waterfall with a seat under it and a raft hammock to float and be the ultimate Lazy-Lauren! Fab!
Friday Afternoon, Party of 1
Client heads to Europe this time, Luxembourg to be exact! Must be nice!
Saturday Morning, Party of 6
Yes, party of 6, that’s a half a dozen people, and yours truly, in the family SUV for a quick jaunt to Dulles at 6 a.m. sharp! Hawaii-bound for two weeks, 4 of the people in this party are under age 8 and talk about ecstatic, no matter what time it was!!! Whew, I was certainly glad by the time they all piled out that I actually wasn’t going! Holding down the fort, getting the cars serviced and detailed in their absence. Love it!
Saturday Morning, Party of 1
This time it was off to Union Station for the train-taker client headed to New York City and then Connecticut for a trip that’s a little business and a little pleasure!
Sunday Morning, Party of 4
Pick up time: 5:15 and they all pile into MY car, complete with the install of a booster seat and a little girl in a party hat and they’re off to Dulles to catch a plane to San Juan, Puerto Rico and then a Cessna to Saint Thomas. I think I was literally on autopilot myself for this run.
Monday Morning, Party of 1
A 6:30 a.m. departure out of Alexandria and off to Dulles for a fabulous businessman headed to Los Angeles “for work” all week! This was soon followed my what’s called rush hour in the big City.
Monday Evening, Party of 2
Known this client for a few years now and at pick up today I finally met her other half. Hilariously fun couple headed to Seattle. Or…. maybe not. The plane never departed so this was the first completely round-trip to DCA in a day for me and I soon picked them up at the airport and brought them home to sleep in their own beds and do it all over again today…
So let’s look again, that’s:
21 travelers total, and
7 paying clients, in
4 days, including
3 early mornings in a row to Dulles
2 different airports
2 cars to detail (3 if I splurge and do my own!)
1 Cruise ship boarded
1 Cessna ride
1 train station
1 cancelled flight
1 paid personal assistant & countless miles driven.
The moral of this story: I love my job!
Safe Travels & Happy Summer, One and ALL!
(Could you bring me home a postcard at least?!)
