From bed, from the same boring four walls. . .from being flat on my back, doing nuthin'.
Three guesses where we went. heehee Okay, one. One guess. Because you know me and I would only leave the house right now for one reason.
We went to visit Squirrel! For the WHOLE weekend. Not just a day trip, a full fledged, spend-the-night-in- a-hotel-kind-of-weekend.
Who says you can't bedrest at 70 mph?
And it snowed on the drive down too!
When we arrived in Harrisonburg we checked Spot into the hotel and took Squirrel to lunch. After lunch we went back to the hotel where I went immediately to bed and the girls began their weekend. Daddy took the girls back to campus where they hung out, went to the movies, ate in the dining hall and hung out some more. Then Dad took them for a snack at "The Dog Pound" an on campus,- midnight hot dog stand and then back to Squirrel's dorm room to order warm cookies [delivered] and watch more movies with her roommate [sans the parental figure]. Porcupine felt like such a college kid because she spent the night in the dorm. Pretty cool. :)
Meanwhile, back at the hotel I slept the sleep of the dead, waking occasionally to tell the dog to shut up. She whined - WHINED - the whole weekend. About drove us bananas. The only time she was without all four of us was when we went to lunch, but she whined on the trip down, when Dad got out of the van to pump gas, while we slept. All four of us could be in the room and she would whine. Bah. I think it might have something to do with this being her first trip without her partner in crime, Scooby, but I am not a dog whisperer, so I spent the whole time shushing her.
Now for a couple of shout outs to folks that made our weekend so nice -
To Comfort Inn [and especially Katie] - Thank you for being so friendly and accommodating, for the clean, super comfortable rooms and the heat! :) We love being repeat customers with y'all.
To Bob Evan's Restaurant [and our waitress Christine] - The food was piping hot, delicious and the service was first rate. We will be back very soon.
Mostly - Thank you to Squirrel's fantastic roommate who made Wallene feel welcome and okay'd her overnight stay. It really meant a lot to the sisters to hang out together [without Mom & Dad] and they had a great time with you Saturday night. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Yep - I'd say they had a good time!
See ya' on the flipside.
