Mike's sister Stacey works as a flight attendant and yesterday she had a 24 hour lay over in Charlotte, which is about 1 1/2 hours away from us. Even with no sleep, she was still super fun! We took her to see Wake Forest University and the medical school. We also went to Furnitureland South, the largest furniture showroom in the world! (Mike calls it the Disneyland of furniture.) We zipped right through, and still managed to take about 2 hours. You could really spend an entire day and not see everything. I can't wait until next weekend when she has another trip and we get to show her more of North Carolina!
Earlier this month I spent a week in Louisville, Kentucky. It was my first time in Kentucky and my first overnight business trip since I moved to NC. My former job in AZ required about 50% travel, which was way too much for me. I didn't really mind this one trip to Kentucky, espcially since I don't anticipate much travel for work in my future. Besides, the city was beautiful and most importantly... I got to see the huge Louisville Slugger!
