You know that great deal we got online for the flight and hotel? Well, here I sit in my bargain hotel room-you get what you way for I guess. It is clean but looks about 100 years old. I pray every night there are no bed bugs. The beds are comfortable I must say but probably a bit dated too. I have slept better here than at home for the last several months actually. Must be the hum of the bedbugs lolling me to sleep. This takes nothing away from the great visit we are having with daughter and granddaughter. Lane (3 year old) doesn't care about anything but the pool here. It is clean and we have had fun "swimming" in the pool with her. That is the extent of my exercise for the last 5 days. Oh, and walking around the Orange County State Fair, which is a step up from the State Fair in ABQ. Is alot more fun to go with grandchildren i have decided. No limits on sugar or rides for the grandkid..very cool...I have 2 more days of "recovery". My body finally has no aches or pains at all. My hair and skin thrives in the ocean/polluted air. No allergies except the occasional cough from LA pollution. Husband & I are off to a Dodger game tonite and then back to Abq tomorrow where the laundry and training awaits. It has been a great break from life at home (I know it is such a hard life)..:) Hey I have that serious laundry job! And then there is yardwork and flower care..and errands..hey maybe we will stay in the not so "Quality Inn" for a few more weeks!
We found out today that we need at least a new well pump at our cabin in northern NM, which had a serious flood this spring. We may need to go back to work just to get the place fixed up! Well, not really-we are hoping insurance pays for most of it....you know-that thing you pay in case of home disaster-well, this is one of those. We still may need a new heater, we are replacing all the floors, furniture, some walls and probably more as the flood result problem seems to be growing. We have learned a thing or two about MOLD-that really bad thing you get with musty water damage. It takes Chlorine to bleach the stuff out-gross! Thank goodness we don't have to live there full time but looks like trips to the cabin for this summer at least are suspended...But next year training for IMCDA in the spring will be great especially getting ready for those Idaho hills!
