Little Road Trip

Saturday morning Marie and I went to breakfast. After that we went to Penneys, Hobby Lobby, and WalMart. It was nice to get together with her since it had been several weeks since we had a chance. Next week we start walking again. I am so glad the weather is warming up and we can get back to it.

When I got home we packed a little bag and drove up to Mt. Pleasant to have a little overnight getaway. We stayed at the Hampton Inn, which was very nice. They had a pretty neat shower.

It was just a continuation of the floor with a little hump between to keep the water from going all over the bathroom and a two drains. I had never seen a shower like that before. I don't particularly like to shower in hotel bathrooms so I didn't use it, but Rich did. He said it was pretty good. He also thought that the little bottle of lotion that they give you was conditioner and he put it in his hair..but I didn't tell you that OK? :)

There was some kind of basketball tournament going on up there this weekend. Our hotel was filled with kids. We went for a swim in the hotel pool and all I have to say is: Is it really necessary for kids to screech at the top of their lungs when their swimming? Jeez, I know they were excited but gimme a break! We enjoyed our dip in the pool and soak in the hot tub, though.

We also went to the Soaring Eagle Casino up there. It's a beautiful casino with a gorgeous hotel. We actually have stayed there a few times and it's was very nice. We didn't win anything significant but we were able to stay and play for quite a while.

We left pretty early and were home today by 12:30. Here I am playing with the camera on a boring 2 hour drive!

I have already gone to the grocery store, vacuumed my car and done a few loads or laundry. It's really nice out so I plan on taking a walk sometime this evening.

Isn't this nice spring weather grand?

From the looks of that shower, you were in a handicapped room. I've gotten them several times and it sure makes things easier!

hahahaha OKAY, we won't let on we know about Rich and the lotion!! Too funny, but I've done such as that many, many times in my life!

I'm glad you had such a wonderful weekend! We all need a get-a-way once in a while. I'm thinking of one myself, hopefully sooner than later. Of course, I'm waiting until I'm more sure of what's going on.

Have a great week, Jeanette!! :)

Sounds like a fun weekend to me!

There are lots of those sort of showers in homes in Europe. I love the continued tiles throughout and just a squeegee needed to clean up the floor and walls.
