Pricescope Upgrade/Maintenance Is Complete.
We stil have a few things to iron out. If you see any bugs, issues or have any concerns, let us know here in this discussion.
O M G, thank goodness that is over! That certainly was a NUTshell of a day. You did it and you got through it and congratulations!I am reporting in on yesterday. Absolutely brain fuzzed.
Seven hour drive, then...
Atlanta traffic! Felt like constant survival mode. Insane that people do this twice a day every day to get to work. 8 lanes each direction.
My GPS sent me to a hotel on the wrong side of a huge mall (same street number, multiple Peachtree streets?!), but I did not know until I had paid for long term parking and also I sure as heck was not getting back in traffic. So I walked a half mile to my hotel.
I mentioned as I checked in that I had lost my reading glasses. They said a driver would take me to buy new glasses. I kept saying I just wanted to go to my room but they insisted, and had an old guy who normally is a greeter (and had trouble driving in his own lane) to take me to Walgreens. By the time I got to my room I was totally exhausted.
I had booked this overpriced hotel because it was in the same building as the french consulate.
Next morning I go to the consulate...fortunately an hour early....they said the visa center had moved to downtown Atlanta, so I made a mad dash to my car and drove to downtown. My GPS could not find the address, so I ended up parking in a bad neighborhood of bombed out looking storefronts and had to walk 15 minutes back up into downtown. JUST made my appointment.
After appointment walked back through the “interesting “ neighborhood to my car
then tried to get out of Atlanta. I could see where I should go but the street was blocked. It took almost an hour to find my way out of Atlanta. Turns out there was an under street explosion on Peachtree street (yet another peachtree!)
Then on the freeway, a tractor trailer accident and long delay.
By that time it was dark and I have night blindness. A bridge was under construction so there was a long delay, then a detour through the countryside and I was driving by desperately following tail lights.
No civilization so I had to keep driving for about 1 1/2 scary hours but finally got to a town. I was only an hour from home, but I got a motel room.
When I got to the motel room I received an email saying the visa office was sending documents in the morning via UPS. I thought my application has been rejected. Perfect ending to a perfect day.
Then this morning UPS wrote...whoops no delivery today, just that a label has been created (for sending me my visa when it is approved).
My day in a NUTshell.
But I did have this with me : )
It helped! Lol
LOL sorry @Jimmianne my wording is confusing. The first pic was by Bethany but the second photo is a photo of Zena. Not a painting lol. My fault. It was early and clearly my post was not clear at all.Missy, love the photos. Bethany is talented. When you see her, please ask what kind of paint she used. and .....What a beautiful spotted tummy!
Thank you about the coat. I think it looks better on me too!
At least I have the good sense to show off all the buttons...
