The week started Sunday evening for me as I departed for the Atlanta Airport for a flight to Seattle (referenced in the last blog post). Since my flight was originally delayed by an hour, I was excited to enjoy an amazing dinner at One Flew South. After making it to the gate, the flight continued to get delayed due to storms. After two hours, we finally got to board and I was excited that I would be getting into Seattle around midnight EDT, so it still wouldn't be terribly late! After about 30 minutes on the plane it was announced that we were going to be delayed another hour or two because we had two flat tires! I mean I totally understand that the tires need to get fixed but does it really take 2 hours!!!! On top of that, we had to stay seated in the plane! With the delay, I finally made it to Seattle around 2 AM EDT which is WAY past my bed time :) I quickly got to bed and was ready to go the next morning at 4 AM (Seattle Time) due to the time change (sometimes the inability to sleep in really stinks!) After getting quite a lot of work done, it was time to head out to lunch before my meeting at Amazon at 2. As I get to the rental car at noon I learn that the car won't start :( After the hotel crew tried to jump it and was unsuccessful I started getting worried because the car was brand new and only had 4 miles on it! After calling the rental place they called a repair guy out and after 30 minutes we finally got the car started! With the delay I had missed lunch and I headed to Amazon for the afternoon meeting. Below is a picture of my drive in of the space needle (my one touristy act of the week) and my super yummy salad from Whole Foods! Whole Foods is my new way of healthy eating while on the road because it's quick but very tasty!

Upon returning to Atlanta on Thursday (only a 1 hour flight delay) I return to my car. That was where I found my last surprise for the week...a cracked windshield :( Normally it wouldn't have been a big deal but I think after the week I had, I thought it was the end of the world! I was super excited to get home after that and enjoy seeing my little one while finishing up the day of work.
