What's with the weather? My weekend, etc!

Hi all I am back from my Weekend Getaway and it was great, except I am still tired. We spent the first night at my mom's and we can not sleep there. So by the time we got to the hotel all I wanted to do was go to sleep in my huge whirlpool bathtub. I think I laid in there for about 2 hours. I wanted to read in there, but that seemed to be really hard so I just gave up and relaxed! I kept thinking someone is coming in here to need me for something, but nobody came. It was just so nice. Then we got out for a bit and did a little Christmas shopping, not much because we really did not have much room to get it home. There was a new Walmart right across from our hotel that I had never been to. It was interesting because it looked like an upscale Walmart. There are now 4 Walmarts in Lexington and I went to every single one and enjoyed myself. I know some of you hate Walmarts but I enjoy them and I really am not much for malls. (now you all think I am crasy for sure) Saturday night we ate at the Crackel Barrel and we had a very interesting server. He told me that my Grilled Chicken salad was healthy only that my honey mustard dressing had xxxx grams of fat in it. Now who really wants to hear about how much fat is in something when they are eating out? But the guy was pretty interested and told us about being involved with American Idol and how far he got etc. After all the fuss with my honey mustard sauce he tried to get us to eat dessert, which we did! lol! We had a Carrot/pumpkin spice cake that was fabulous! The night before we ate at the Olive Garden and I had a new dis that was really good, but the best thing was the dessert a pumpkin cheesecake that was oh so good! There were only three complains with the weekend 1. My bed pillows at the hotel were awful! we asked for some more, but they said they had none. My neck hurt so bad! 2. Keeneland was in session a horse racing/betting place and the traffic was awful and no wonder our hotel was expensive and all the hotels I called for that matter. I can't believe that place. They had signs for drive thru betting, what are we coming to? 3. I can't remember the third thing? Maybe I wish it could have been longer because I had a great time. So, that was my weekend. i think my dh had a great birthday too. I was so glad to pick up my kids. I love them so, but I am so glad I took the break. I have never spent a night away from the twins since they were born except when I was in the hospital with Neil so it was hard to leave them, but I definately needed it. Oh yeah I remember #3. It was too stinkin HOT! Like in the 90's everyday. Yes, I want to know what is up with this weather? It is October come on I want at least some cooler weather.

I'm glad you had a good get-away . . . "mini-moons" like that every now and again are essential to a healthy marriage IMO! :)
Welcome back!

We're lucky that it finally cooled here, been in the 70's and 80's, not cold, but nicer then 90.

Sounds like a fabulous weekend away!! I'm jealous! :) I never have room for desert so I've never tasted any desserts at Olive Garden, LOL! I hate hotel pillows too, they stink! Too thin.

Sounds like a great getaway!

It has been SO STINKING HOT here, too. I am so done with summer already. I hear it's supposed to drop to the sixties this week, and I am PSYCHED! My favorite weather. :-)

By wednesday it is supposed to cool off here. I feel ridiculous using A/C in october, but I would feel ridiculously hot without it;)

Isn't it amazing how we always need a vacation after the vacation?
Weather is finally realistic here today in the midwest. Predicted big rain---no such luck, but it is cooler and that's a blessing. It's good that you get out and away from the stress of everyday life. Congrats!
