One week is nothing in professor time.
Conferences, marking season, a PhD defence, anything can get in the way.... I would like to believe that I'm fairly quick, but I can't review a PhD dissertation in less than a day, not properly. Professors never have a full day for something (vacations/holidays excepted). Combine any of that with the start (or end) of a semester or just a bunch of meetings and anything can take about three weeks.
Even worse because the professor will probably want to read your documentation thoroughly and that takes a bit of time on itself....
One thing that I did find useful when I was in your shoes was to try to contact someone else that is "around" the professor. "Heavy hitter" professors usually have an administrative assistant, and they can be incredibly quick and well informed, and often nudge the professors to be quicker as well.
Postdocs or PhD students might also work, but only if you already know them beforehand.
Other than that, stop second-guessing :)
Now, one important remark is: How quickly do you need the professor to answer? Do you have any deadlines coming? If you do, you might want to "escalate" the communication. Personally, for non-urgent stuff I'll just send an e-mail. Next step, secretary via e-mail. Then secretary on the phone. Call the professor on his office, and so on...
Once I had to call my MS advisor on his personal mobile, but it was really urgent, "I need your signature now or we are out of funding" urgent.
