I need to be better at doing those kind of things. I'm a little worried I've hit "peter principle" limit and it's all going to come crashing down here any second.

For you, I think it's more impostor syndrome than peter principle.

That is kind of one of my concerns. One can say no only so many times and I've already turned down an offer to move to compliance. However, I think if I apply the proper reasoning for saying no (I have no SO to tend the homestead in my absence, I'm not just starting my career and have people reporting to me etc.) I might be able to get away with it.

Speaking of humidity. Anybody spent the spring/summer in RI? Company is talking about sending someone out there as a "culture ambassador" for a recently acquired company and the CIO asked me if I would be interested. They would rent a furnished apartment etc for me plus pay an extra stipend over salary (not sure how much yet, still being fleshed out). I figure I could negotiate maybe 1 flight a month back here too. Not sure I can do it though. I'd have to find somebody to take care of my house and stuff.

We're announcing bonuses. I got to tell my direct reports how much they were getting for the first time which was cool. I got a healthy 10.5% up from 8% last year.

Had a near 70 degree day last weekend just to add insult to injury.
