It’s time for another edition of “The Traveling Misadventures of Michelle.” I think I could devote another blog to this, but I digress. Earlier this week I thought I had my travel misadventure out of the way when I got a mystery substance (barf? baby food? who knows!) on the sleeve of my suit jacket. Apparently I was WRONG. Yesterday, I flew to Baton Rouge to attend a few meetings on Thursday (today). After delays, I finally made it to Baton Rouge. Upon arrival, I learned that the Governor had not only declared a state of emergency, but all state offices would be closed tomorrow. So, basically I had flown all this way for nothing. Oh well, since I was flying on to Little Rock I figured everything would balance out and I would at least make those meetings. Well, apparently I was WRONG again. Now that IAH is closed until tomorrow, I won’t be leaving Baton Rouge until SATURDAY. Seriously. All flights tomorrow afternoon are booked. And now I am going to miss my meetings in Little Rock. Not cool. To boot, stores and roads are closing down here in the thriving metropolis of Baton Rouge due to freezing rain. I am trying to remain calm, but am not doing well in that regard. At least I have a laptop with wi-fi, a hotel gym and room service, although the gluten-free options are almost non-existent. Here is my home for the next few days.
Could be worse, right? If you have any tips for enjoying my stay in Louisiana, please let me know!
