Aaaaaaaaaand I’m Back
Phew. that was quite the trip.
I don’t sleep too well in hotels. Add to that… I had a sore throat all week (conveniently only at night, while I was trying to sleep). Also, it was Coooold.
So, I was exhausted, but it was still cool to be in NYC.
My boss told me to come up for three days, so I was supposed to be home tonight at 10.
Then, all the meetings and stuff ended up being yesterday and I had NO REASON to still be in New York. He told me to “enjoy the city”.
I know he was trying to do a very nice thing with that, and I appreciate it, because my boss is a sweetie, but I sure would have rather gone home Thursday night had I but known.
So this morning, I did get out and walk around Midtown, which is always fun. But it was 20* outside, and I just couldn’t take it. So after two hours, I decided to just say to hell with it, head to the airport and hope I could catch an eariler flight and not just get stuck at the airport for 7 hours.
Turns out, there was a flight that was boarding just as I got through security. So, bing bang boom, I was on my way home and got home at 2 instead of 10. Woo Hoo!
One thing I DID do this morning was stop at the Stage Deli and get me and the SB each a Knish (no bacon, tho, Tiff). I packed them (with some worry – I was afraid the TSA might consider mashed potatoes liquid – but it went through security fine) and the SB and I had New York Knish for lunch here in Charlotte – love it!
So – no monsters attacked while I was in the city. So it was a good trip, and good meetings. But goodness, I am always sooooooo glad to be home.
