To avoid that pain this year we decided to go away for the weekend. Perfect since I had Monday off. Florida was discussed and dropped. Wisconsin Dells was discussed and dropped. Alexandria was also. Of course we settled on Duluth, duh!
Sorry Amy Jo G. I'll read my FB messages better next time I swear! All prepared to go Friday night after work and can't get the family suite. Okay, no big, three days is probably long enough, know what I mean? Tell the lovely 14-year-old she can bring 3 friends. Who do we bring along? Our lovely 27-year-old niece. Oh the fun we had!! Really, this is not sarcasm.

I just can't resist saying, "he's Canadian".

Remember when your kids were little and you stayed at a hotel with a breakfast buffet? Let me remind you. People came to breakfast in their PJ's I swear it!! So New Year's Day off we go to the breakfast area in our bare feet and pajamas only to find not only are there people there (we thought they'd all be hungover and sleeping it off from the night before) these people are dressed for goodness sake!! Did we care? Not one little iota! Not even Jennafer in her feetie pajamas! Let them look, we did it again the next day too, only with socks on that time.
Now, some advice if you are going on a little getaway with your S.O. of more than 25 years.
*If said S.O. says maybe you should bring a warmer jacket just in case, DO IT!!! Don't just not, just because he/she can't tell you what to do. It was really (insert expletive here) cold and windy on Sunday afternoon and Monday!
*When you are going to go swimming outside in the winter in Duluth, be prepared for frozen hair!
*When you are my age and you are making out in an elevator in a building that's only three floors...be sure when the elevator stops and you stop that you look at the floor number...you might be on the wrong floor! Good thing the artwork was different, we might not have noticed.
