Himself said he can still smell the stuff on his pajamas that he wore there. I'll be getting fresh nicegown tonight.
Wow - did you mention it to the hotel staff? Nothing gets changed if no-one complains.

Oh how he suffers in order to give Beagle and you a good home.

Glad to hear you and Himself are home safe and sound, CG. It always feels so nice to get back to your own home after a such a long road trip. All that hotel room chlorine would have given me a headache, that's for sure.

I'm making a shopping list - HAVE to do a little grocery shopping before Tyler gets here at noon. It's crazy windy and I don't particularly want to go, but I'm almost completely out of fresh fruits and veggies. That just won't do.

Last night when I hit the bed I went into a beautiful, deep sound sleep. So since I feel so good today, I am continuing to do some deep cleaning and tossing out things. And in that process I have managed to create four loads of laundry. Stuff that has been sitting around in the closet for a couple of years and needs to be refreshed.

I just may have worked up an appetite for that pork chop.

DH just returned. He had a fantastic time! He just went along for the ride on the golf trip, didn't swing a club. I demanded a full report.

Chef Mike made the guys jumbo shrimp, bacon-wrapped scallops, and upscale pigs in a blanket for appetizers. Then Cobb salad. Entree was perfectly cooked medium rare filet mignon with grilled asparagus. Dessert was fresh apple pie with ice cream.

Mucho vino was also consumed.

I am envious.

I usually do when we have that problem at a particular hotel, especially if we stop at one on a regular basis. This time I got the "it's to maintain sheets that don't harbor bacteria" line. Fortunately, we will probably not need to stay at that particular location again.

We're lucky the two hotels that are regulars along our route when driving to see our kids have switched to oxygen bleach. No odor, no rash on my face.

Holy cow. I'm dying here reading about that after having my tuna sandwich for dinner.

I know! I forgot to mention the twice- baked potato. I had leftover Chinese.

Pity that wives were not included in the trip. I told DH that situation needs to change.

Well, I'm having a rough time sleeping, so I'm re-organizing my scrapbook stuff and herding cats.
