HI HO HI HO, It's Off To Work I Went

So I was in Florida Monday and Tuesday for work and got to fly first class on the way down.

That was totally SWEET!

We got to Florida and it was colder than it was up in Michigan, pissed didn't begin to discribe my feelings on that.

We got to the supplier around 11am, and ended up leaving the supplier that day around 6pm.

We went to dinner at Outback, yummy! Then back to the hotel for our 7 AM appointment at the supplier on Tuesday.

Our hotel was right in front of an amusement park (small one) and 1 block from Cypress Gardens.

Didn't do much at the hotel, surfed for a bit and was so tired I feel asleep by 8:30pm.

Up at 5:30AM Tuesday morning ready for a nice hot shower and what did I get? A luke warm trickle of water out of the shower head. That was not a good start to the day.

Got to the supplier and did what we needed to do and were done by 11AM, out flight out was at 5:30PM.

We tried to get a earlier flight out by everything was overbooked. Stand-by was impossible they said.

So seeing that we had 6 hours to kill we decided to head over the Downtown Disney and have lunch then do some shopping (Downtown Disney is Disney market area, food, shops, etc).

We ate at Cap n' Jacks, it was a seafood place and I had the Crab Cakes, yummy!

And then we shopped.

Do you know that Disney has a store just for DOG STUFF?!!!

Yes, the puppies got plenty, t-shirts, necklaces, bandana's, and Maggie got a princess hat complete with minnie ears!!!

We headed back to the airport and hit the bar before our flight.

Got home at 9PM on Tuesday.

It wasn't too bad of a trip, got a lot settled with the supplier, but definately the next time I won't be staying at the same hotel, it was yucky.

I will also be flying in on Sunday (or even Saturday) instead of getting up at 4:30AM on Monday morning to get a flight.

The air was quite hazy and it smelled, the supplier said they were getting a lot of smoke from Georgia.
