My husband and I are
cheap thrifty We don’t like paying full price for anything so we we get all of of our mini-holidays through Island Daily Deals. Most often the stuff they offer is crap like manicures and eyelash tinting but they also have good deals on things like oil changes. Our latest was two nights here for $120.00. It looks, and is, very grand in the lobby and the outside. The bedrooms are very basic. No internet, TV, microwaves etc. The first night was OK but the power went off and it was pitch black in our room. We were given a flashlight but you had to wind it and keep winding it for it to work. There is no way you can wind a flashlight and use the toilet at the same time. The power was out all night and came on the next morning. The problem with that is I have sleep apnea and can’t sleep without my CPAP machine. OK, that is not true. I sleep but wake up every 45 seconds. That is what the doctor said when I was diagnosed. That afternoon I had cramps that were the worst I had in years. I took 800 mg. of Ibuprofen and it did nothing. In the end I also had a double dose of Tylenol and more Ibuprofen. Cramps went away but there is probably a crater in my stomach. My hysterectomy can’t happen soon enough. So it wasn’t a great time away. Before we left I had a premonition that it wasn’t going to be a nice time and I thought about canceling. I will say that we had the best pizza ever. It has spoiled regular pizza for the rest of my life.
So now we are home and I am glad. The laundry is done and put away, bed sheets have been changed and the bathroom cleaned. Suitcases emptied and everything back where it belongs. Now to read blogs to find out what all of you have been up to.
