34.365.2014 India Day One!

Ok… We arrived! So far, so good. The hotel is amazing, the food is pretty good and we have a great day catching up on sleep. I took an Ambien last night and slept for a good 8 hours. The I woke up for a delicious Indian lunch.

We had wonderful massages to relax. I even scheduled 2 more! Then our local director from the India office met us and helped us find all of the shipping venues. Driving is crazy!!

We then went to Commercial Street to find some deals. And some stray dogs. It really bothers me.

And now to bed after a pizza dinner.

31.365.2014 The Last Supper

Today was prep day… Finish up email, give the team instructions, laundry, pack. I was excited to come home and Dave had already done the laundry. AND the TV was finally mounted on the fireplace!! Woo hoo!

I was able to pack and take a nap before we headed out to dinner at Bar La Grassa. First time there and it was yummy! Here are the leftovers:

So I called this my last supper before I go to India. I’m a bit nervous about my possibilities of food.

And the pooch only had leftovers of his treat too!

30.365.2014 Friends

Today was a blast. It was our annual Leadership Summit where we hear about last year and our focuses for next year. It’s also fun to reconnect with friends in the organization that you haven’t seen for awhile.

That’s why it was a blast to go to drinks with this lady and our friend Jill to celebrate birthdays.

26.365.2014 Travel

Today we celebrated Max’s second birthday. We enjoyed some Donato’s pizza and a really fun Thomas the tank Engine cake. He was a lot of fun whipping through his presents and trying to stop and play with just one of them. And he did so good at blowing out his candle!

Then we headed up to Columbus for our flight home which I was convinced was going to be delayed and/or cancelled. Well it wasn’t! The captain did tell us that we had a lot of turbulence which always helps my nerves. The ascent was beautiful!

About an hour in I noticed that we started to veer to a different direction and change altitude lower. The captain confirmed when he came on and told us that we were landing in Detroit because the engine was losing oil. I surprisingly stayed super calm. The lady beside us had a panic attack and literally was moved to the front. Either way, we landed safely.

Now we are waiting patiently to get a new plane and a new crew. Unfortunately, the crew arrived, but our second plane also had a mechanical issue that couldn’t be resolved. So on to a 3rd plane. We waited about 2-3 hours total. Oh yeah, and we had this lovely fire alarm too. What I find interesting is that no one got up and moved.

But we just landed and all is okay! We even got a little liquor for free on the flight. Baby needed that with the turbulence. 🙂
