It’s been a while since I blogged, eh? Well, stuff happens.
This past weekend, we went out to Pennsylvania for our annual President’s Weekend trip with our friends from Bloomfield. It was great fun, as usual, and we decided to go snow tubing at Camelback. It was nice to have a hotel close by and a couple of adults who didn’t want to tube – as the kids dropped out, the hotel-bound adults picked them up and brought them back to swim in the pool. The hotel was icky – the Comfort Inn in Bartonsville – cigarette stench in the halls, more than enough bathroom mildew to go around, a minimalist free breakfast in a room large enough for about 8 people. However, it met the requirements. Rooms close together, near an activity, with an indoor pool. It won’t be next year’s choice, though.
And speaking of inadequate. . .I’ve spent enough time in the last week having to use public restrooms, and I want to know whose brilliant idea it was to manufacture gossamer-thin toilet paper in 30 pound rolls and put them in hermetically sealed dispensers? Even if you do manage to reach a hand up into the dispenser to move the entire roll, you’re still likely to get an inch-square piece of the stuff. There should be a special level of hell for all the people involved in this creation. . .
