The other day we got word that Travis needed to go down to Iqaluit the beginning of December for some dental work. This of course entails me having to fly down with him (Leah doesn't fly well). Now it's not that I'm so adverse to a small change in scenery (although Iqaluit is really, really far down on my list for a change in venues), but it is a major pain in the butt in terms of life in general and the House in particular. Now I'm madly trying to find someone to cook for clients for five days, while I try and fill my time down south (maybe Leah will let me take her laptop, although I kind of doubt it), and keep Travis both entertained and soothed. Currently I don't have anyone booked, and could just block off the time, but, quite frankly, we could use the revenue. And there is always the possibility that you lose out on a longer term reservation.
The other headache came this morning in the form of having too many clients. One of our clients was due out on today's plane but it was cancelled due to weather. Normally that shouldn't present a problem, 'cause if no one can get out, no one can get in. But I have a client who arrived yesterday, booked into the hotel for a day and booked in here for the rest of their stay. Four clients - three rooms.
Fortunately two of the clients, who are travelling together, are going to share a room, so that problem is resolved. Now I just have get baking for the meeting here tonight.
