Hotlanta... in the rearview mirror

Well, i have been back from Hotlanta for a couple of days now. I was there for work - my organization puts on an annual conference & this year's was in GA.

The conference went really well. As usually there were people who loved it & people who thought it was a waste of their time. What's that saying - you can't please all the people all of the time - yeah, we have that problem :)

We worked a lot, but i had more downtime than when i worked for Snakey Snake. That was a nice change from what i am used to. Who would have thought a little extra rest at night would be good for the next day?

We didn't have a chance to see many of the 'big' attractions while in Atlanta, but we did see the mall right behind the hotel. We tried Ted's Montana Grill & PF Changs. Ted's Montana Grill is owned by Ted Turner (for those of you who didn't know) and it's just another way he's trying to take over Atlanta. You can't go anywhere without seeing Ted Turner this, Ted Turner that.

There is a PF Chang's in Richmond, but none of us had been there before, so we tried it while we were in Atlanta. I thought the food was really yummy & the prices weren't too bad either.

We left Atlanta Sunday morning to arrive in Richmond around 2:15pm. The journey through the Atlanta airport took forever! So those of you who have to fly out of there, make sure you heed the warnings on how much time you need. It was a little over an hour for us to get from checking our bags, through security to the actual gate where our flight was leaving. That's a far cry from what it's like to fly out of Richmond!

I started sneezing on Sunday & haven't stopped. i think it's safe to say my allergies/sinuses have gone haywire. This is why it's great to be home, right? Speaking of home, i would have stayed home today with my ills, except that while the big kahuna is on vacation this week, I am 'in charge'. I don't know exactly what that means... i tried to get us out of the office early, but that didn't go over very well. Guess i'll know by the end of the week if the title is going to bring anything exciting for me :)
