Ryan and Megan's Atlanta Itinerary
Friday, October 5, 2007 - Tuesday, October 9, 2007

OK, so this isn't really supposed to be a vacation-trip, but we'll make one out of it anyway! You see, back in December, my manager asked if I was interested in public speaking. Oh, sure, I thought - I'd be happy to give it a whirl. So, we put together a little blurb about project management and sent it to the Project Management Institute (PMI) for consideration at their annual global congress. Sure enough, we were chosen to present! So, we are headed down to the conference from October 6-9, and we'll be giving a lecture about implementing a project management office in a healthcare setting. No kidding - you can check it out here: http://congresses.pmi.org/NorthAmerica2007/TheCongress/AOF/Event.cfm?EventID=187. Here's the kicker - it was exactly one year ago that Megan and I were married, and now I'm leaving her for our first anniversary. As luck would have it, though, her current employer agreed to let her attend this conference! Hooray! Now we'll get to spend our anniversary together, and she can witness me making a fool of myself in front of a large group of people. So, that's the deal, folks. We are flying in a day early so that we can catch the sights and sounds of the city, and heck, this will be a new state for me, as well. Number 45! Now that's just peachy...

Friday, October 5:
What an early morning!  Today will be our main day of touring the great city of Atlanta, and boy is there lots to see here!  We could check out the Coca-Cola factory or the CNN headquarters or even the gravesite of Martin Luther King, Jr.  We've got a rental car for two days, so who knows what we'll be up to.  Whatever we end up doing, we'll be staying local and maybe even get some dinner with my co-workers.

Saturday, October 6:
We will have most of the morning to ourselves, but then it'll be time for actual work at the PMI congress.  We will also be attending a meeting for a healthcare special interest group tonight..

Sunday, October 7:
Today is our first anniversary, and we'll celebrate by eating the top of our wedding cake - yummy - assuming that it wasn't taken away by security on the flight down.  From there, we have to drop off our rental car early in the morning - this is one thing our workplaces are not paying for.  Then, it's time for the PMI congress to kick off with receptions, keynote speakers, and so on.

Monday, October 8:
If I (Ryan) got any sleep overnight, it'll be a miracle!  And not because it's the night of our anniversary, but rather because I'll be so nervous about giving our presentation starting at 8:15am.  At least it'll be over with quickly and we can enjoy the rest of the conference.

Tuesday, October 9:
Our last day!  Whew!  Most of the day will be spent at the congress, but Megan will cut out early so she can get to class.  Ryan will be there a bit later and take a flight home with his manager, arriving just as Megan gets out of class.  Then it's time for home!
