T & I survived the trip to Atlanta. It's really funny but for a city that I was born, raised and spent most of my adult life in I never felt a connection to the city. The traffic was a horrible as I remembered, the over-crowding was the same and for the most part it is still a very dirty city.
Sure there are plenty of new developments and urban renewal is flourishing but there is a trail of abandoned areas for every "in place" created. It was nice seeing my friends and the family that I cared to see but it was ever so good to come back to my real home.
We stayed at the Waverly Hotel at the Galleria which was quite nice. The location was as good as you can get as far as being by the interstate(s) and in an area that is still relatively nice so that made the trip a lot easier to deal with. I've officially made the obligatory 10 year visit and I'm glad it's over.
So when we get back there is some D-R-A-M-A going on in the office. We have a meeting at 4:30 today and who knows what the hell's gonna come from it. The only thing I worry about is being able to keep my mouth shut if blame starts being cast for something that I or my team had no part in. I am not one to sit back and quietly watch judgement being cast when it's not due. Should be an interesting meeting none the less.
Every time we go away and board the dogs our older one, the Chow, comes back home with a stomach bug. Poop....more poop...and more poop. Add to this he is a stuborn old dog and refuses to take medication without a fight so yesterday was not a good "parenting" day for T. He somehow took charge of poop control and medications so he was not a happy camper by days end. I'll make it up to him somehow.
