Food List/And then they lost my luggage....

Good Thursday Morning! I am so excited that it is Thursday already I could do a little dance! My Wednesday went pretty well but it was a LONG day. I got up early and was dressed in high heels and a suit by 6:30. Our client meeting went really well but was MUCH shorter than we thought it would be. As a result, I got to the airport in DC four hours before my flight. They wanted to charge me $50 to change my flight so I said forget it and just sucked it up and got a bundle of work done in the airport (I already gave them $15 to transport my duffel bag and now they wanted $50?, anywho). So my plane was on time hooray! I got into Charleston around 9:45 pm (still in my suit and high heels) and was so excited to get home. Unfortunately, they lost my luggage....I think this is more annoying now that they make you pay for your bag- its like you've paid them to lose your luggage. Any who. I made it home safe and thats what matters! I am working from home today awaiting the arrival of my luggage. No exciting food pics from yesterday, but I figured I'd post my food list:

I don't travel that often, but my mom did and I think over the course of her business career, they lost her luggage like 10 times! But it was always delivered the next day!

Glad you got home safe, that's what matterss!

Sorry about the lost luggage - and you totally have a point - how does that work - you pay them money - and they lose your stuff?

Sorry :(

Hope you have a good Thursday!

Glad you had a safe trip. I've been through the lost luggage a few times and I always say as long as they can track it and know where it is, I'm okay with it. As long as it isn't gone for good I know it will eventually get to me. :)

ohmygod that is SO infuriating about lost luggage!!! and the fact they make you PAY for it as well, that is just plain ridiculous. a few years ago i arrived in estonia to do a concert, and they lost my luggage, and i retrieved my concert dress at 2am in the morning of the day of the concert. ARGHHH.

That is some serious organization.

Lost luggage is one of my fears. So sorry.

This is simply unbelievable! Man, this thing's getting better and better as I learn more about it. To be honest you cannot beat the services or the people that I have dealt with.
