Time is Flying…
It’s October already, my birthday month, wow we are having so much fun.
Our weekend stay was at Country Inn & Suites by Radisson at 541 W Dussel Drive in Maumee, Ohio and it was great. We arrived around 1pm but they accommodated us with another room type, so we both had a queen instead of a king. Customer service was outstanding, and the room was comfy.
We began our journey to our next event and plan to just do about 200 miles per day. Our first day we did 170 miles to Monroe, Ohio, where we stayed at Best Western on New Garver Road. The room was compact but had everything we needed, a firm king bed, a couch that was stained to the point I put a blanket on it, strong shower pressure, fridge and microwave. Customer service was exceptional, he allowed us an early check in and when we were leaving after breakfast, he asked if we enjoyed it and when I explained we didn’t take the time to eat, he asked if he could get us anything for the road. It’s those little things that mean the most.
Talk about a day of nerve-wracking driving, between the heavy bouts of rain, construction and add in some aggressive drivers, well we were grateful for only doing around 190 miles today. We arrived in London, Kentucky at the Comfort Inn around 1pm and with no hassles we were given our room key. A large suite with a king bed, couch, desk, fridge, microwave and a massaging shower head. Life is good, we only hoped we would get this lucky on the weekend nights when we are there for several days and not just one night.
Under 150 miles today with sunny skies and no rain in our forecast, had some extremely dense fog through the mountains but a much better drive than yesterday. Our destination today was Athens, Tennessee at Comfort Inn and without hesitation we had our keys to the room and it was before 1pm, it was fabulous customer service. When we got to our room we had toilet issues and without hesitation we were moved. We went to use the hot tub, but the bubbles were wimpy, but we accidentally push a timer that was for the “umbrella”, which was even better. It was a waterfall in the pool and it soothe these aching bones. We ordered in Pizza Hut and the pizza and wings were delicious...
It’s those small moments in our days that leave us realizing just how blessed we are and want to continue just living in that moment and stop trying Jto take on the world of problems. Our lives are frigging awesome!
We had about 180 miles to arrive at our weekend hotel and we gained an hour so we first stopped to have lunch at Olive Garden, we both had the Never Ending Pasta Bowl...
Our weekend stay was a suite at LaQuinta in Oxford, Alabama and it was great. It was huge with a separate bedroom with a king bed and television. Living room area had a couch, desk, fridge, microwave and a bar area. The bathroom was tiny and the toilet was like a child’s potty, low and small but it was clean and customer service was excellent.
Our event was successful, meaning we not only hit our goal, we surpassed it, but it was a hot one! We will be staying in the heat as we head to Orlando for our next event.
