the view from my hotel room

the view from my hotel room
Originally uploaded by kirida.

I have a huge event in an hour and a half.

I’m spending the night in a tiny town called Stevenson, Washington, where it is over 100 degrees outside my window. At least the view is nice.

When I’m out of town, I like to take long baths, the bubbly kind that I’m not allowed to take at home because of a two-year-old who would jimmy the lock to the bathroom door and jump into the tub, shoes and all, because in his mind, mommy just gave him an indoor pool. CANONBALL!

What do you like to do when you’re out of town?

    Wow. I didn’t know it got that hot in Washington.

  2. r u in eastern washington? i like to blast the aircon (yes, aircon) in the hotel room because i don’t have to pay the electricity bill. and while that aircon is kicking in and blasting 60degree recycled air, i like to sleep … and enjoy the quiet that i normally would not enjoy here at home due to my teen boys thundering down the stairs followed by our hyperactive Boxer who will then jump on me. enjoy your “alone” time. its a precious and rare commodity in motherhood.

  3. I like to make coffee in the wee little coffee pot, just to make the hotel room smell nice even if I’m not planning to drink the coffee.

  4. I like to OWN the remote.

    For me, going out of town is an excuse to eat everything in sight. It’s like “oh I’ve never had COASTAL CALIFORNIA OMELET BEFORE GIVE ME 12!” I also check out all the local candy stores, obviously.

    Also I would just like to say, for the record, that people don’t realize that MOST of the state of Washington is a desert and yes it gets hot!

    At hotels, I like to run and jump onto the bed. I’m pretty sure my bed would fall apart if I ever did this at home, so I like to take advantage when I can.

    Also – my out of town thing is to try new foods. I make it a point to try something I wouldn’t normally eat at home when we go out. It makes Mike think our vacations were a lot more fun than they probably were in reality.

  8. I like to sleep. Sleep like the wind.

    Oh, and stretch out right in the middle of the bed.
