Hotel Living

I love the beds in this place.  By far the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in.

The bathrooms are big.

Because I am the lightest sleeper in the world, I have piled all three kids in the adjoining room and am able to sleep.

I love having all the beds made by someone other than myself.  (Okay, honestly, I don't make the beds that often at home)

I love that breakfast is ready when we walk downstairs.  At home we are under the direct order to grab something as you run out the door.

It's much easier to wake up three people living in the same room, and not upstairs where they can hide under their covers.

Did I mention the beds?  Oh, and let's not forget all the comfortable pillows, and not that cheap stuff at the other places!

In the meantime:

We are running out of clean clothes and I refuse to pay the price for the hotel washers, but might be forced to suck it up.

We have lost the remotes to both tvs.  Operating Locate Remote did not work well this evening, so we will try again tomorrow.

They don't have DVR.  I can't remember the last time I watched tv and didn't have the fast forward button available.  Heck at this point though I would just take a remote!

We miss Sammy the Dog terribly.  He's apparently doing great at Erin's house and has made a BFF.  The kids asked if we could have visitation rights, lol.

The lack of a kitchen is getting old, and I might actually cook when we get home.

House Update:  They came, they drywalled, and they drywalled over one of the pipe turn off/on switches, so it is off and can never be turned on.  Brilliant?  I had to call it in.  It's freezing here and I saw that they stopped by and made sure my water was off, hiked my heater up to 79 or something (ummm.....are you trying to make me have a massive electric bill???), and are dripping all my faucets.  They haven't even seen my summary on damaged items yet, but so far it is over $8000 and that's without all the stuff that can't be replaced, like the shrunk that will need to be repaired.

We still don't have carpet, and who knows when the house will even be dry enough for that with the crazy snow and ice.

I can now look on this whole situation and while I can't laugh, I can realize that I will survive it.  I had a friend that came over on Saturday and helped me take 5 million pictures (give or take a couple million), and then took me out for a drink.

While the FRG is useless, I did get a call from Rear D offering to help me however they could.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and in the meantime there's always my comfortable bed, perfect pillows, a bottle of if I could just find that remote!

No remote is a deal breaker for me!! I couldn't survive!!!! lol....

Yay for almost being done. Will oatmeal be the first meal that you cook when you are home?? ;)

I don't know what I would do. You are doing better than I. I wish I could do some kid wrangling for you or take you for a drink as well. Just know it is isn't forever.

I can't even imagine. You're doing great. You and your family are in my prayers, hopefully things will start moving faster.

Wow, sorry to hear about the recent flood, that's just awful. Glad you were all safe though and that Sammy is doing well :)

I'm glad to hear that things are slowly beginning to work themselves out. And at least you seem to be sleeping half-way decent :-)
