Home…

September 12, 2008

I’m home guys….and very glad to be. It was a long trip and a long week. All in all, it was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated in my mind. I thought being alone in a strange city was going to be terrible, and it really wasn’t. In some ways….I even enjoyed it a little. Wouldn’t want to do it again anytime soon, but there were some enjoyable moments.

I did like Atlanta, it’s a great city. I walked to Centennial park and did a bit of exploring. Last night I was trying to walk to an underground mall I had heard about called….appropriately enough, ” Underground Atlanta” and I stopped a “Downtown Ambassador” to ask him where it was. Seriously…they have these uniformed “Ambassadors” sprinkled all around to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. If you look confused or lost at all they will come right up to you and ask if they can help! Anyway, I asked this guy where it was since I had seen signs for it. His response? “Uh….I wouldn’t go there if I were you. It’s pretty rough” Okay….so I asked him if he had any suggestions of where I could buy a little souvenir for my kids…his response? “Well….if you went right now while it’s still light and got in and out really quickly you could probably go to The Underground…but don’t stick around.” Seriously…..why would I go there after THAT glowing endorsement? Let’s just say I was not feeling the underground love,  so I headed back towards my hotel and stopped at a little shop to pick up something for the kids, which thrilled them.

So that’s all…I’m home….Everything is back to normal….and I’m looking forward to some down-time with my family.

OH….and if you made it this far? Check back in the next few days because I’m doing a giveaway and it’s going to be a GOOD ONE!!!!

Peace out!
