Last night, at 9:40pm I took a plane back to NYC from Atlanta. After a quick Georgia fix (complete with sweet tea and a screening of Gone With the Wind), I was off to the Big Apple for another 26 days before I'm home for the summer. After the security check point, I usually take the airport tram to the B terminal. But, for some reason, last night my departure gate was located in E...the international section. Truly, I discovered it's the hidden jewel of Hartsfield-Jackson International. There's a full-fledged food court and awesome art. Right now, they're showcasing artwork made from discarded plane materials. Here are a few of my favorite pieces:

After getting back to Gramercy at 1:30am, the absolute last thing I wanted to do this morning was go to a 9:30 American History class. Little did I realize, I drank my last cup of coffee before my plane ride to Georgia, so waking up this morning was no easy task. By the time 2:30pm rolled around and it was time for work, I was absolutely exhausted! Thank goodness the kids I babysit are on spring break; basking in the glory of down time, all they wanted to do was read. I literally had to bribe Oliver with a piece of banana bread to leave the house. After an hour-long trip to his favorite book store, Court Books, he was begging me to please take him home. Not even the new book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series could keep his attention. However, on our walk home, Oliver was absolutely fascinated by a flower-filled bathtub. We had to take pictures of the peculiar Brooklyn pairing.
