Today I traveled from Providence to Chicago by way of The Black Hole of the Eastern Seaboard. My flight from Providence to Philly was fine, after I got my bluetooth headset back. When I landed in Philly I found out that my flight was canceled so I was re-booked on another flight, so I didn’t have much to do. I did spend my time using my new phone to send Utterz to update folks with my travel hell. In the end I finally did get to Chicago.
The reason that I was so annoyed today about my travel plans was that I was supposed to meet Robyn and Lisa and their families for a meal at Sweet Baby Rays around 1:30CST. Lisa has two kids and Robyn has 4. So each time I had to call with another delay I felt worse and worse about it. I would be content to spend the day in the airport because I could find something to do. However when someone else’s day and time is affected by my travel delays I feel very guilty even if I can do nothing about it. Both Robyn and Lisa as well as their families were so great about all the changes.
Who are Robyn and Lisa? Well Lisa is there on the left and Robyn is on the right.
And here is a photo of the three of us.
They are both bloggers that I met at Blog World Expo and Postiecon. Each of us blogs as part of PayPerPost/IZEA. We even made a little video for Ted. But this was at the end of the meal and wasn’t the best time to do it, plus I didn’t mention that I was shooting video with the phone.
The photo today is of Lisa’s daughter, Madison and one of Robyn’s sons, Barrett and her daughter, Blakelynn. There were 6 kids, and two husbands at the meal. 11 people in all and I think we did very well and the place is still standing as Lisa so aptly put it on Twitter.
I said I wanted a photo of all three Posties and I think it was Robyn who said we should have a photo of the two girls and one of the boys to represent us instead. I ended up getting a couple of the three of us anyway.
If we had planned ahead we would have had the kids wear our IZEA shirts, which we all agreed were the most comfortable shirts ever. I always travel in mine now. I also wear it so that one day an IZEA employee or another Postie will see me in the airport.
Dinner was awesome at Sweet Baby Rays and I even photographed my plate of ribs like a certain “A-List” blogger.
I bet I’ve been taking photos of my food longer though.
So today was awesome once I got to Sweet Baby Rays.
It was too short though I really enjoyed spending time with both Robyn and Lisa and their families. Everyone was so nice and we had a great meal, good conversation and I got a glimpse of my life in the coming months to years. And that was pretty cool too.
