7 Years! Nice Day $$$

January 17th, 2012 at 09:31 pm

Today makes 7 years of blogging here at SA. Who knew when I started way back then that I'd still be doing it now. Smile I've seen so many people come and go - and a few return again. Some who've gone I've really missed their insights - I won't name names because I'm sure to leave out someone! The best thing though is that the general feeling of SA blogs hasn't changed. We are a family, and even when we might not agree with each other, we support each other and defend against those who attempt to be rude or mean.

Love ya guys Smile

What a great day today was. School went pretty well. Then I was off on my approximately two hour drive with my music blasting. ( Combination of my iPhone and the portable speaker mom gave me for my birthday.) I'm sure I got some interesting comments from truckers as I zipped by singing loudly with Whitney "I will always love you" or with Bette "Under the Boardwalk" or pounding the steering wheel to "walk 500 miles". But who cares, I was having a blast. : D

I got here and checked in. NICE room. Not only do they have a fitness center, but they have an indoor pool. If I would've gone, I could've had two complimentary drinks (I wonder if they would've made me a Roy Rogers?) Big Grin. Instead though I ate at a CA Pizza Kitchen that was directly across from an Apple store. I also saw that there was a Nestlé Toll House Cafe, but resisted temptation. Smile I did however go to the Trader Joes that was across the street. I got a pkg of choclate crisps and 4 containers of soup. Cheaper than Walmart Smile. I told my dad and brother that I almost felt like I was in CA (except for freezing - wouldn't have hot choclate in CA!!)

Tomorrow I think I'll go to Village Inn across the street for lunch ( although I wonder how hungry I'll be after a made to order omelette for breakfast - complimentary.) I kind of wish I could be here for a couple days just to enjoy the hotel ammenities. At $90 night though, it's way out of my personal budget.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow and learning about all the great books. I just hope it won't make me salivate to much ... Smile

Non reimbursable money spent - $11.xx TJs

    Wow, has it really been that long? I guess it's been that long for me, although the date on my blog says otherwise. (I had to start over in 2009.)

    How cheering to see all those smilies in your post! I wish you could get away to this town more often....You probably woke up some of those truckers, and that's a good thing. Heck, your frivolity could have saved a life by bringing someone back to alertness. Big Grin You never know, right?

    Oooh - I love CA Pizza Kitchen. Actually, it is FREEZING here today. So it sounds like you got the total California exerience. Wink Definitely a hot chocolate kind of day, at least up north.
