Training in Virginia..

We left Winston-Salem after breakfast on Friday to make the drive to Chesapeake, VA to Lighthouse Point for our management training. We have been told we'll be here for six weeks. We arrived here a little before 3 p.m. and got our stuff moved up to the room. This facility is almost completely occupied so I think we are in the last room they have left to rent. It's a large room on the front corner of the property...overlooking the entrance. Weather getting here yesterday was gorgeous. We had all the windows down so the warm breezes could blow through the car.

Last night we went out to dinner with Linda's daughters Laurie and Stephanie and Laurie's husband and two kids. We went to a great Mexican restaurant...the food was very good.
After dinner we went to a frozen yogurt bar where they had a kazillion different toppings to put on the yogurt. Linda and I shared strawberry yogurt that I had topped with fresh strawberries, chocolate chips, hot fudge and hot caramel. Yum !! Went back to Laurie's house long enough to see the kids off to bed and then we returned to our facility. (We are only 10 miles from their house)

This morning we had breakfast in the dining room with the residents. We met Helen and Rudy, the co-managers here. They seem like super nice people and I'm sure we'll be working with them quite a bit while we are here. We're still not sure if we start our training tomorrow or Monday. Rudy is going to try and find that out and let us know. More later....
