Hi I'm back from a busy weekend at my granddaughter's 9th birthday! It seemed kind of everything that could go wrong did, but we made the best of it and we all had fun anyway. First my daughter had to have a wisdom tooth pulled out the day before so she was in bad shape..then we got all the little girls to the hotel for the pool/waterslide sleepover party and the pool WAS NOT OPEN :(...plan B..Humbolt has an indoor public pool and waterslide so we drove over there..only to find out they were sanitizing the pool so it WAS NOT OPEN :(..oh yeah when we checked in and went to our room it wasn't ready..then when we went back up it was finally ready and the maid let us in..after we got back from the trip to find out the other pool wasn't open the keys wouldn't open the door!!!another trip to the front desk..now what to do with all these little girls..pizza, presents and pinata don't take too long and it's 3 pm and have them till 11 am the next day!!
Luckily the staff was a bit helpful and said we could have a free move in the conference room on the big screen projection tv and all, with their pillows and blankets..hotel supplied 2 big bowls of popcorn...then they told us to come back after pizzas in our room to the place where they serve continental breakfast for a free make your own sundae bar. We could get more movies for in the room, too. So after several pillow fights, dancing, running in hallways, rides in elevators, bouncing on the beds..and big soapy fun in the shower with swim suits (had to put them to use some how) all the little girls said it was the best birthday party ever..very annoying to Grandma who paid for the hotel room and got no pool or waterslide :(
Even Grandma bounced on the bed!!! must be good exercise :)
All this after a 4 hour drive to get there and then another 4 hour drive home yesterday. When I got home it was back to work and tracking down hubby at the neighbor's cutting hay.
Today we had an government guy come to inspect the pastures, off to town for mail, fix a tire and get some groceries. Then we worked on the corrals to get them ready for tomorrow and rounded up the last herd for tomorrow's take out..everything went as planned.
Tomorrow will be another long day..we leave really early and won't need to bring lunch, since the corrals are right near our place :) but I need to put lunch in the crock pot so it's all ready when we can get away and come home to eat. I cooked up some veggies in the oven..cabbage, potatoes, carrots, onions drizzled with oil and some garlic and herb spice mix
then I put them in the fridge..tomorrow a.m. I'll put them in the crock pot with some smokies and they should be tasty :)
Well we have lots planned for this week so I might not be blogging much..I've been keeping up with most of my tracking and I love to read others blogs and pages :) Great motivation :)
Hope you all had a super weekend..and have a great week...
