Weekly Weigh-In: 4/15/2011

No weigh in this week! No access to a scale. Next week for sure though.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall, it's been a good trip to Norway. I was able to complete 90% of the work they assigned to me, which is more than I think they thought I would. I even got called out in the Raytheon internal New England software department weekly newsletter! Apparently, I'm doing an exceptional and super job.  Personally I just think I'm doing a good job, and that's good enough for me.

I'm heading up to Gardermoen this afternoon, to drop off the tiny rental car and check-in at the airport hotel. My flight leaves at 6:30AM CEST tomorrow, so that means I have to be at the gate by like really fricking early o'clock.  I've been checking my seats on the second leg of my trip from Amsterdam neurotically all week. I keep trying to get them to assign me to a row of two seats which are currently empty, but they won't allow it yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to change them at the self check-in kiosk tomorrow when I get my tickets! I'd love to be able to have a row to myself again.

Though, frankly, how far back I end up sitting on the plane doesn't matter much. Logan's got the slowest baggage claim service ever. I've had times where I end up waiting forever in the Customs line (~20 minutes) and belt won't even have started yet.

Next Monday's post will be the second part of the two-part A Squirrel In Norway series, entitled A Squirrel Returns Home from Norge! Original, I know. :)
