Week 1 in Augusta!

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Wow!  I have been a total bum!  Not a single update since I arrived in Augusta, Georgia last Saturday!  After being home for four and a half months, getting back into the swing of travel has required more adjustments than I remembered. 

I had all these grand plans for writing a post about packing tips, but that would have required me to start packing more than 11 hours before my flight.  Yup, after all these trips, I still haven't learned to plan better.  I decided to take one of my new suitcases and one old one, and I was very impressed with the new bag!  Obviously the TSA was as well, as they took the opportunity to inspect my luggage and contents, and left me a love note in return. I'm sure I'll follow up with a full review of my new bags after a few more trips.

I arrived Saturday afternoon as planned and joined my friend Dan Huffman and his wife for dinner at French Market.  After a previous lack-luster experience at the Surrey Center location, I was a bit nervous but had a completely different experience.  Dinner was fabulous - I had pecan fried chicken and then bread pudding for dessert.  YUM! 

Sunday I continued the "death by indulgent food tour" with a drive to Atlanta for brunch at Holeman & Finch Public House, the food was amazing, and lunching with a foodie friend is detrimental to my waistline.  A trip to check out the new CB2 store and quick stop at Ikea made it a great Sunday.

Yes, I took a picture of my brunch - wouldn't you hate to travel with me?

This week has been a busy week in Augusta! Monday started our three week training class, David is out of the office (recover quickly, buddy!), the Site Manager had to travel to Atlanta.  With so much going on, two senior leaders (who happen to be good friends) traveled to Augusta to hold down the fort; which gave me the opportunity to catch up with them over dinner throughout this week. 

This weekend will be busy too, I'm traveling to Atlanta to see family and Mrs. Whitney Wrona; you may remember her from this video last summer in India. 

Look for more updates next week, and maybe even a few pictures!
